How to Transform Rice Krispies into a Mind-Blowing Dessert

You can make a lot of tasty things with marshmallows – and we’re big fans of pretty much all of them! – but we never expected THIS. The latest idea from Buzzfeed Blue uses marshmallows to upgrade two amazing desserts in one seriously unexpected and delicious way.

The video begins with a humble skillet being filled with marshmallows. You might be thinking, “Oh great, another s’mores skillet for the books,” but we’re about to go in a completely different direction. (Although, for the record, there’s nothing wrong with a good s’mores skillet and we stand by that.)

Once you see a bowl of Cocoa Krispies come into play, you should have a pretty good idea of what’s coming. Well…kind of.

The marshmallows have been melted down into a delicious homemade fluff, so throwing some Krispies into the mix must mean that we’re making some Rice Krispie treats, right? You wouldn’t be wrong in assuming that, but BuzzFeed is taking this childhood classic to a whole new level, just wait and see.

After some thorough combining, we have a skillet full sticky, sweet Krispies. You could honestly stop right there and no one would judge – we could easily devour this whole pan of gooey goodness! But you’ll want to see this recipe through to the end, trust us.

Next, you’ll want to spoon out the Krispies onto a baking sheet that’s been lined with parchment or wax paper. Flatten your Krispies out with your (clean) hands until they reach the edges of the sheet. Then pop the whole thing in your freezer for 15 minutes.

Still not sure what’s being made? Truthfully, it took us until the last moments of the video to really realize the culinary genius of it all! We won’t give anything away, but let’s just say this fun, easy dessert is a great way to hack one of our favorite summertime treats.

Whether you’ve guessed what’s being made or not, make sure to watch the BuzzFeed Blue video below! This is one sweet hack you won’t want to miss out on.
