Seaside Salt Water Taffy Rice Krispie Treats

Back in 2011, I was given a challenge to create a new flavored Rice Krispie Treat, using vacation destinations. So in honor of National Taffy Day, I hope you enjoy a seaside twist on this classic cereal snack! ~Amy

Seaside Salt Water Taffy Rice Krispie Treats

5 tbsp butter
5 1/2 cups Rice Krispie Cereal
1 10oz package marshmallows
3 cups miniature marshmallows
12-15 pieces of salt water taffy, suggested flavors, Cotton Candy, Orange Vanilla, Strawberry, etc…
Powdered sugar for dusting

Dust a small baking sheet with powdered sugar. Slightly warm taffy with hands. Roll into long strips and cut into about ten small pieces per taffy. Place cut taffy onto baking sheet, dusting to lightly coat.

In a large saucepan, over low heat, melt butter, add marshmallows and stir until almost smooth. Remove from heat and fold in cereal. When evenly coated, fold in miniature marshmallows. Stir in taffy pieces, and place mixture into buttered 8×8 baking pan. Pressing lightly to compress. Cool to set. Cover until ready to serve. Slice into even sections. Keep covered until ready to serve.

Makes 10 pieces
