I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Swedish Berry Rice Krispie Squares

Rice Krispie treats with a candy twist!  My daughter and her boyfriend bought these as a packaged snack and wondered if I could make a copycat recipe. Challenge accepted!

6 cups Rice Krispies
1/4 cup salted butter
40 large marshmallows or 5 cups of minis
1/2 tsp vanilla extract 
1 cup (185 g bag) quartered Swedish berries
2 tbsps red sprinkles, divided

Cut the Swedish berries in quarters (that's the most work this recipe requires), and toss them with the Rice Krispies. Melt the butter in a large pot then add the marshmallows and melt on low heat, stirring pretty constantly.

Once the marshmallows are melted remove from heat and add the vanilla, then the krispie/berrie mix along with 1 1/2 tbsps red sprinkles. Butter a 13 X 9" baking dish and gently press the mixture in evenly using a silicone spatula or buttered hands. Don't squish down to hard or the squares will not be as tender as they should be. You can shake more red sprinkles, about 1/2 tbsp, on top and lightly press to make sure they stick. 

Let set 1 hour before cutting into squares. After every couple of cuts run the knife under hot water then dry and continue cutting
This helps avoid gummy buildup.

They are just so darn good! I wonder what gummy bear krispies would be like?!
And the verdict... "they're better than the original!"
