This weeks recipe, is a bit of a cheat as it’s a no-bake treat. Today I’m showing you how to make a batch of my Biscoff rice krispie treats – these could easily become your new favourites.
I’m trying my best to use up all the ingredients I have in the house, mostly so I don’t have to go out and risk catching anything. There was a night where I really wanted some thing sweet but easy and just plain old rice krispie treats came to mind but then I had the genius idea of making them biscoff… So that’s how I came up with these. The rice krispie treat is perfect and with the Biscoff, it just adds something special.
By making these, I was killing two birds with one stone – using what I had in the house and satisfying my sweet tooth. It’s a win-win to me!
Anyway, let’s get started, shall we?
300g Marshmallows (I used the pink and white variety, use whatever you can get).
180g Rice Krispies.
50g Biscoff spread.
50g Biscoff biscuits, roughly chopped.
8 Biscoff biscuits.
Before you get into making these treats, you’re best to do some prep work. Line a 8×8 inch square tin with greaseproof/parchment, weigh up all your ingredients and get yourself a large saucepan and silicon spatula.
To start, grab yourself a large saucepan and place the butter, marshmallows and biscoff spread. Place on the hob over a medium heat and allow to melt, then stir continuously until everything is well melted and smooth. This doesn’t take too long, don’t be tempted to use a high heat, as the mixture may catch on the bottom of the pan.
Once melted, take the saucepan off the heat and pour directly over the rice krispies.
Give it all a good mix together, try not to make a mess! it may be difficult to start with but as everything starts to get coated, it will get easier.
Once you’re about half way done with the mixing, you can now add in the roughly chopped biscoff biscuits, continue mixing until everything is incorporated and well mixed.
Now you can take your lined 8×8 inch square cake tin and place all of the rice krispie mixture into it. It may look like a lot but once its been compressed down, it will look better. Take a spatula or something similar and start to press the mixture down, levelling it off as best you can. It can be done pretty easily but I found to get it super level, using a cake decorating smoother really helps to get it level and compressing it.
Place in the fridge to firm up a bit, while you warm up the topping.
For the topping, take around 150-200g biscoff spread and melt it. I found placing the jar into some warm/hot water works really well. It should be much more liquid and easier to work with – pour directly on top of the treats and spread best you can, then place biscoff biscuits on top, if you’d like.
I like to then place the finished treats into the fridge, mostly just to firm up. As they are easier to slice when firm – it’s just a heck of a lot less messy.
Now it’s time to slice them up, cut into 8 generous portions, each slice should have a good ambit of biscoff spread and a whole biscoff biscuit. Feel free to cut them into smaller portions, so instead of 8 you get 16, it’s up to you!
