I love a company with a sense of humor. This week I found myself in the grocery aisle staring at the shelf and giggling from ear to ear. There, was a row of Nutella jars. They’re always next to the peanut butter, but this time there was something very different. Each Nutella Jar had a different label. There was the First Grade Nutella jar, and a Second Grade Nutella jar and jars with every grade up to Junior and Senior. How fun! I went home and researched the labels. Seems as though the Nutella Company was making Back to School week memorable for kids who love the velvety smooth chocolate hazelnut spread. Good for you, Nutella! We could all use a little humor these days. (Incidentally, I went back to buy one of each for all of my grade school nieces!) Another company with a sense of humor is Kellogg’s. Their cast of characters like Tony the Tiger and Snap, Crackle and Pop —well, they’re just Grrrrrreat! So, I decided to pay tribute to both companies this week and combine Rice Krispies Treats and Nutella to put even more smiles on faces! These treats are unbelievable! They are so chocolaty and crunchy, plus they are absolutely beautiful with a Nutella and white chocolate swirl on top. Rice Krispies Treats have been a snack favorite in America for 114 years! Yep, that’s how long the Kellogg’s company has been around. Nutella has been around since 1963 and made in northern Italy very close to my family’s home town. I hope you enjoy this iconic treat with a twist! They’re perfect for back to school and beyond!

- 5 cups Rice Krispies
- 10 ounces mini marshmallows
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 14 ounces Nutella, divided
- 8 ounce white chocolate
- In a medium large pot, melt butter over medium heat. Add mini marshmallows and stir until marshmallows become a smooth cream. Remove from oven. Melt 6 ounces of Nutella in the microwave for 20 seconds or until it’s pourable. Add to the marshmallow cream and stir until well combined. Working quickly, add Rice Krispies and stir until completely coated with marshmallow Nutella cream. Spray an 8 x 8 inch baking tin with cooking spray. Press Rice Krispies firmly into pan in an even layer. Melt 8 ounces of Nutella in microwave for 20 seconds. Melt white chocolate in microwave at 30 second intervals until completely melted. Pour the Nutella and white chocolate over the top of the Rice Krispies. With a skewer, knife or chop stick, move the chocolates to create a swirling effect. Refrigerate for 1-2 hours. Cut into squares and enjoy!
