mix in peanut butter and frost with melted chocolate.
R8, MARSHMALLOW creme in the jar works much better than melted MARSHMALLOWS.
Snap Crackle and Motherfucking Pop Bitch!
Congee. I call them Rice Soupies.
And you choades think that you can dismiss the bread pudding?
Red Dragon cheese. But I don't know you, so you can't have any.
I had a rice crispies bake off once with the people on the floor of my dorm in university.
Good tip is to melt some hershey mini chocolate chips and add it to the melted marshmellow before adding in the rice crispies. Do it quickly though, because the chocolate thickens the mixture and makes it harder to work with.
Also, instead of adding the melted hersheys to the marshmellow, you can make the rice crispies normally, then drizzle the melted chocolate overtop. For added decadence/fatfuel, you can sprinkle those crushed up bits of skor toffee mix (usually found in the baking section) over top of the drizzled chocolate.
R23=leaves streaks in the toilet.
Twice as much vanilla as is called for in the recipe.
nuts. almonds or pecans. Or sometimes I use Cheerios instead of Rice Krispies.
Actually I haven't had rice crispies in years, i'm allergic to a lot of different foods and have a pretty restricted diet nowadays.
I just didn't give a shit in college.
Are you sure you're using enough butter?
Creamy peanut butter
Use corn flakes instead of Rice Krispies. Extremely sweet but delicious!
just a hint of mustard

Why not just add turd bits?
It would suit the crappy product better.
Dandies Vegan Marshmallows, natch. $11 a bag.
I second Scotcheroos. People love them.
I used to make scotcharoos all the time; so decadent with peanut butter, butterscotch chips and milk chocolate chips. YUM!
When I hit my 40's, I stopped making them.
r9 just a learned a new term in hygiene class today.
How much peanut butter to put in a normal size mixture? A cup?
R39 - one-half cup should be plenty, otherwise they'll be too greasy.
Bulky sweaters do not hide fatness. That's why I always check you out from the back.
[quote] How much peanut butter to put in a normal size mixture? A cup?
For a recipe using five cups of Rice Krispies, use one cup of peanut butter. Also, try it with Cocoa Krispies.
R17, I'm having a little brunchette, you bring dessert!
They're better with store-brand crisped rice. Actual Rice Crispies aren't as good, even bad. I can't really explain it.
Just very slightly burning or browning the marshmallow/butter mixture adds a little bit of interesting flavor. And a little (just a little) vanilla is good.
I know, too much thought for a a trashy treat.
My secret to perfect Rice Krispie Squares is a mixture of caviar, truffle oil, and just a touch of edible gold leaf.
Sorry to hijack this thread but can someone post that Frank Kameny has died? I can't start threads
For a real sugar overload, use Cocoa or Fruity Pebbles instead of Rice Krispies. Our commissary in college used to make these for students during final exam week. So sweet but what a rush!
I can't think of these without flashing back to Martha Stewart making them on her show. She used something like 5 boxes of cereal. When she put it into the pan it must've been about three feet tall-then they cut away and it was totally flat and fit the pan perfectly. They never mentioned how the hell she performed that feat of magic, but it must have taken a chainsaw to cut those things.
Dove Dark Chocolate
Reeses Peanut Butter Cups
Nestle Crunch Bits
Why do people always fuck with the classics? Rice Krispie Squares are perfect in their original form. Adding anything to them is an abomination.
LEAVE RICE KRISPIE TREATS ALONE!
Just a shot of my hot man-juice....yum
A stolen can of frosting is the secret ingredient.
[quote]Use corn flakes instead of Rice Krispies. Extremely sweet but delicious!
One of my friend's moms used to do this at Christmastime when we were kids. She would dye the marshmallows green and form them into wreath shapes instead of squares and then put on red hots as "berries."
A place near my office, here in NYC, has HUGE "black and white" Rice Crispy treats.
One side is dipped in chocolate, the other is dipped in white chocolate with the line between the two colors going from corner to corner. They look kinda good and I'm always tempted to buy one.
If I see this thread floating around tomorrow, maybe I'll take a pic of them for you guys and post it.
If anybody here lives of works near Houston and Broadway, let me know and I'll give you the place name.
I pulverized 2 post-it note sized pieces of praline candy. I did the same thing to 1/2 cup of pecans and mixed the two together. I added that to the marshmallow mixture. They were a hit with the fraus at our Christmas party.
Brown the butter slightly, add a wee bit of brown sugar to make a glaze, mix that with the marshmellows and the rice krispies. Heaven!
A Mars bar mlted with the marshmallows
A gal at the school where I teach makes them like this- very very flat layer of the rice/marshmallow mixture on a cookie sheet. Quickly spread a thin layer of peanut butter. Next drizzle melted chocolate over it. Then take one long end and roll it up. Wrap it in cellophane. She then puts it in the frig to harden. After, she cuts the "log' into manageable pieces. So fucking GOOD!
Fabulous idea, R64. Acai berries or goji berries might be worth a try, too. Or all three! Or even the chocolate-covered kinds.
OMG R62. That is brilliant! She doesn't even have to bother cutting it for my sake. I'll just munch on it as is.
Lots of possibilities with that technique. How about peanut butter and raspberry jam? A RK pb&j. Or maybe Nutella?
Keep those fucking goji berries out of my Rice Krispies bars! You are probably the same freak who makes "cheesecake" with TOFU!!
Nutella sounds fantastic !
Who knew? So many interesting variations.
So, why hasn't this caught on like cupcakes or macaroons?
Seriously, an "upscale" Rice Krispie Square store that serves 20-40 different variations for an obscene amount per square and also has normal cafe stuff like good coffee. You'd think someone would have tried to pull it off.

We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
