Chocolate Bacon Rice Krispy Treats!

I am a big lover of bacon; I truly believe that adding it to just about anything makes the dish better. This recipe combines sweet and savory with two of American's classic ingredients. To make this recipe gluten free make sure you use gluten free rice cereal. I used Envrio Kids chocolate rice krispy cereal.


3 table spoons of butter (or substitute)
1 10oz package of Marshmallows
6 cups of chocolate rice cereal
10 pieces of bacon

Place bacon in frying pan and fry until crispy. You want it crispy enough that you can break the pieces apart into dime sized pieces without it being chewy. Place marshmallows and butter in large bowl and microwave for 45 seconds, the stir and microwave for another 45 seconds and stir again (repeate this until marshmallows are a gooey liquid. Add the cereal to marshmallow mix and stir, then add bacon and stir until an even consistency is met. Pour the mixture into a casserole dish and refrigerate until solid. I added peanut butter to the top as a was good:-)
