Like most people out there on social media, my Facebook feed is often times overrun with recipe videos of the most delicious looking, oh so bad for you yumminess. Well a few weeks ago I saw Snickers Rice Krispies come across and they looked pretty good, then about a week later I saw them again and saved the recipe. Well Facebook is evil and when you save a video, it likes to remind you again and again of your saved video. After Facebook made me look at this video over and over again, I knew they had me hooked and I had to try it. I should just call this post, Facebook made me do it!
I will blame Facebook, but I did also think instantly of my almond farmer husband when I saw this recipe. He LOVES snickers. Like I find a few snickers wrappers a week in his truck. I bought Halloween candy and he automatically takes all the snickers out of the bowl for himself. I knew he would love this recipe, so I knew I had to make it for him.
The original videos I watched for this recipe had peanuts, which is what snickers uses after all. Peanuts though! Peanuts are a forbidden ingredient in my house. I do not buy them, I do not own them, I do not eat them. Nothing against peanut farmers, but I have a pretty good supply of almonds and walnuts. So why would I buy and eat a competitor nut? Well actually peanuts are a legume, not a nut, but you get my point. When I see peanuts on a recipe, I pretty much know I can substitute almonds and it will turn out like 100 times better. And guess what, they are still AMAZING!!!
The recipe is pretty easy and doesn't involve cooking really so it is a good one to try when looking for an easy dessert to bring to a party. In fact, I plan on bringing these to an end of harvest lunch we are hosting at the farm this weekend. That is if my husband doesn't eat them all before then. The only thing I had to cook was the melting the butter and marshmallows on the stove. Easy peasy!
Until Next Time,
