Football Rice Krispie Treats

If you are in need of a last minute Super Bowl party snack, I have just thing. These yummy Rice Krispies treats are fast, easy and fun to make! Not to mention, they are super cute.

Start with the tried-and-true Rice Krispie Treat recipe:

6 C Rice Krispies cereal
4 C Mini marshmallows (or (1) 10 oz bag of large marshmallows)
3 T Butter

Melt the butter in a large saucepan over low heat. Add the marshmallows; stir until melted completely. Remove from heat and stir in cereal.

Pour mixture into a 9x13 inch pan. Spread with a buttered spatula or a piece of wax paper.

I smoothed on a layer of crunchy peanut butter and then made a simple ganache for the top.

Simple ganache:
1 1/2 C chocolate chips
1/2 C heavy cream

To make them party appropriate - I cut them out in the shape of footballs and added "laces" with buttercream icing.
