Bacon Rice Krispies Treats



OK, so if you have been following lately you know that I have been on somewhat of a Bacon tear. I promised myself that I would get back to what I originally intended this blog to be, i.e. a humorous look at the food and culture of Upstate New York. Pursuant to this, I decided that I needed to finish with a bang. Before I could hang up my bacony spurs I needed to come up with a dish that was not only novel, but that people would actually wish to recreate. Something that might actually enter the pantheon of "normal" household recipes regardless of its unconventional use of Bacon. What I came up with was a very simple concept, Bacon Rice Krispies Treats.



I started with a package worth of delicious bacon.



I wanted to go for maximum crispospitude and crisposity so the bacon could stand up to the marshmallow mixture without getting soggy. I baked the bacon in the oven until relatively well done.



I set the bacon aside to cool and began the Rice Krispies recipe. I didn't veer from tradition here, I used exactly the directions that come on the box. I started by melting the marshmallows in the butter.



Next, I chopped up the bacon into small chunks, about the size of large bacon bits. I mixed these with the required Krispies prior to the addition of the marshmallow mixture. I felt that this would ensure an even distribution of bacon and would also help to maintain crispness.



After thoroughly mixing the whole mess together I spooned it into a greased baking pan, leveled it out and set it aside to cool. I thought the be-speckling of bacon was simply divine.



After an anticipation riddled hour I decided the treats were sufficiently cooled to cut into. I set in with my knife and extricated a nice sized hunk of the Bacon Rice Krispies treat.



Verdict: I was pleasantly surprised by how normal and good these tasted, not weird or nasty at all. The treats were simply delicious, it seemed like a time tested concoction instead of something that I thought up last night. The salty bits of bacon work very well with the sweet and gooey Rice Krispies treats. I am a big fan of sweet/salty combinations like salted caramels or peanut brittle and these guys are very much along those lines. To tell you the truth, I think that the recipe could actually stand significantly more bacon than what I used, I might even think about doubling the amount next time I make these. I highly recommend that you give these a shot, forget about the novelty value of using bacon in rice krispies treats, these are simply very good.

  1. Bacon spam (which I just bought and fed to the family last night--in fact, it was the only part of the dinner my 2 year-old would eat) brought me here and I'm finding it hard to leave. I actually wish you wouldn't change the subject, but before you do, at least check out something which I made recently and have been requested by my husband to make tomorrow for Thanksgiving (read my review on the page to see the changes I made):

  6. This actually fascinates me. I tried your bacon spam bacon appetizer and they were pretty tasty. But rice crispies are my favorite sweet, well, right after cotton candy. And bacon. Yum. I've tried the bacon brownies and they weren't so good, but this...this might be the ticket. All crunchy, all the time. I like it.

  10. Oh, Mr. Dave.
    Poor, sweet misguided Mr. Dave.

    Nobody "thinks" about doubling the amount of bacon in a recipe, they just do it.

    Tip: Next time, substitute some of the rendered bacon fat - cleaned, of course - in lieu of the butter/margarine called for in the Rice Krispie recipe. That will probably help to punch up the baconosity factor. Perhaps just a tablespoon...or four.

  23. What prince-o3-tour would be bettre in my opinion would be to remove the wrist straps and the skin, and instead make it a 2 babolat pure drive, 2 stereing wheels, 1 baseball bat and 1 golf club. Still, this package is great value for your money. When my wife informed me that Emporio Armani was now pushing its own signature wilson k six, the EA7, I’ve got to admit, I was intrigued. Italian designres producing tennis rackets? How fashion forward of thstrong. I love it. Head microgel is style and preformance at cheap tennis racquets best. Haute couture meets the hard courts.
