Coconut Vanilla Krispie Treats

I love to have these kind of treats on my counter for everyone to enjoy..This is a Rice Krispie treat topped with white chocolate then dipped in coconut, Rice Krispie  treat that everyone will love..

  • 6 cups of Rice Krispies cereal
  • 3 tablespoons of butter
  • 1 bag of mini marshmallows (about 4 cups)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, if you like a more coconut flavor add 1/4 teaspoon of coconut extract also
  • White chocolate chips 
  • Shredded coconut
  • White sprinkles
Melt butter and marshmallows in a large pot on low heat.  When combined and melted, remove from heat and stir in vanilla extract and coconut extract if you desire. Stir in cereal and mix until all of the cereal is coated with the marshmallow mixture.  Press into an 8×8 pan prepared with non stick cooking spray. Spray a little cooking spray on your hands to make it easier to flatten. Allow to cool and then cut into squares.

In a shallow dish, spread shredded coconut and sprinkles.  Melt 1/2 of a bag of white chocolate chips  in the microwave in 30 second intervals and stir frequently.  You don’t want to burn the chocolate just get it smooth. Spread a layer of white chocolate on your krispie squares and lightly press into the coconut and then place sprinkles on top. Press on extra coconut and sprinkles if needed.  Allow to set then cut into squares and enjoy..
