Ingredients

    For the Rice Krispie Treats

    • 6 cup Rice Krispies
    • 1 cup dried cranberries
    • 1 cup white chocolate chips
    • 3 tablespoons butter
    • 1 package (10 oz., about 40) JET-PUFFED Marshmallows

    For the Topping

    • 12 oz white chocolate chips
    • 2 Tbsp milk or half and half
    • 1/2 cup dried cranberries, chopped

    Directions

     To Make the Rice Krispie Treats:

    1. Butter the inside of a 9X13" pan. Combine the cereal, dried cranberries and white chocolate chips in a large bowl and set aside.
    2. Melt the butter in a large pot over medium heat. Add the marshmallows and continue to cook, stirring often, until they are melted and combined with the butter. Turn off the heat.
    3. Add the cereal mixture and stir until everything is combined; pour into the buttered pan and pat evenly.

    To Make the Topping:

    1. Combine the white chocolate chips and milk in a measuring cup and heat in microwave on low heat for 30 second increments; stirring after each time period. Continue to do this until all of the white chocolate is melted and the mixture is pourable.
    2. Pour over the Rice Krispie Treats and spread with a spatula; sprinkle the dried cranberries over the top. Allow to cool completely and then cut into squares.

    Recipe Notes

    Cutting dry cranberries can be a pain; they're a lot like dates and can just stick to your knife and each other. So I add some granulated sugar to them on the cutting board which makes it so much easier. Keep rotating them in the sugar as you cut and sticking will be minimum.
