Ruffles Marshmallow Krispie Treats

IMG_0071 Ok, you guys. Brace yourselves. These are weird.

But in like a totally amazing way.

No, I am not crazy. Oh you guys!

Trust the Lauren.

I put these together on a whim a few days ago and believe it or not, they were amazing! Salty sweet chewy heaven. So tasty!!  They come together just as quickly as regular rice krispie treats, but with a more buttery salty bite. Suuuuper amazing and seriously had me craving these all day! Try them out and let me know what you think :)

Here’s how you make them: IMG_0013 Start out with your ingredients: butter, vanilla, mini marshmallows and plain ruffles chips.  IMG_0015 Melt a little butter over medium low heat in a large pot.  IMG_0017 Add in the marshmallows and melt them down slowly. IMG_0018 While the marshmallows are melting, chop up the chips to be bite size pieces. Or, just crush them in a bag… IMG_0023 Back to the marshmallows: remove from the heat, add in a little vanilla… IMG_0030 and stir that up real well. IMG_0039 Then pour in the chopped up chips and stir to combine with the marshmallow. IMG_0063 Pour that ooey-gooeyness into a lightly greased 9×9 pan and press down to flatten using buttered fingers. Cool to room temp, cut into bars and serve.   IMG_0086 Hello my darlings….how are you? IMG_0096 Super salty and sweet, plus soft and chewy from all those marshmallows! Give these a whirl and try them today. TO.DIE.FOR!!!

Here’s the printable. Enjoy, friends!

    I usually make these with cornflakes rather than Rice Krispies. Definitely going to try these with chips! Yum. And do try with cornflakes, it’s a nice change also.

    I love a good salty-sweet snack. Especially one with potato chips!!

    On a side note, I really have to remember everyone I “know” online, I won’t see in my everyday life. I almost waved to a woman at the children’s museum last night that looked JUST LIKE YOU! I live in Wisconsin. Thank goodness I caught myself.

    I didnt have enough chips for the whole recipe so I used 1/2 rice crispy cereal and 1/2 crushed crushed ruffles mixture and it was wonderful! – Thanks so Much! Cant wait to try it with all chips. I might add some m&m’s next time too!

    Ruffles are great dipped in white chocolate and I have also used marshmallow cream, vanilla, butter and a little whipping cream as a fondue with ruffles!

    These look amazingly like I need to go buy a bag of chips! However, could you make a clarification, please? Your recipe says:

    6 cups crushed original ruffles chips, crushed {1 8-oz. bag}

    Are we crushing then measuring 6 cups or measuring then crushing? Since you have crushed in twice it’s a bit confusing, though I’m assuming you mean 6 cups crushed?

      The 8-oz. bag of chips after crushed turns out to be 6 cups of chips.

      I used Ruffles chips. I’m not surprised that there are less in a Lay’s bag. Ruffles are crinkle cut a little thicker.

    I never cared for rice krispie treats, but my kids loved them I made these, and I have to say, they were lacking something and I do not know what it was. I decided I should just eat the chips next time. I passed them on to my son and his college roommates…and he confessed that they ended up throwing them out. I do think the ritz cracker ones might be better. Meanwhile, most of the recipes you share and I make are a hit. The lemon crinkle cookies have become my son’s new favorite….above chocolate chip cookies…what?!!!!! True!!!!!
