Egg Nog Rice Krispie Treats

IMG_0063 I’ve got some weird and delicious treats for you today.

Have any of you wonderful people ever made Egg Nog Rice Krispie Treats before? Probably not.

How do I know this?

Because I googled the recipe and hardly anything popped up. And the ones that did really didn’t seem to be anything to write home about. Seriously BOOOOORING.

So being the good samaritan that I am, made you all a recipe for some seriously amazing, chewy and delicious Egg Nog-flavored Rice Krispie Treats. {‘Cause I know you all are looking a little too skinny this holiday season ;)} No actual egg nog is in the rice krispie treats because that would have made them soggy.

Soggy things should be illegal.

Also, the word ‘soggy’ gives me the heebie jeebies.

These treats are chewy, lightly crunchy, very sweet and flavored with rum extract and nutmeg. These taste spot on and get even better with a little egg nog glaze….which IS made with actual egg not and powdered sugar.

IMG_0023 Hello tasty glaze. After a few minutes of drizzling, this stuff will dry onto each piece thus making these super easy to transport to any party or Christmas function.  IMG_0027 Did I mention I added in extra mini marshmallows? Well I did. I love the extra chewiness, plus I think it makes them look extra appealing. This was before I added on the glaze. Delicious either way.  IMG_0033 Mmmmm…..mountain of sweet egg-noggy-goodness. Be sure to make a batch this year!

Enjoy, friends! xoxo
