Protein Rice Krispie Treats with XTEND Pro for a high-protein twist. That’s right, high-protein rice krispie treats. These gooey treats will be a hit at your next party.

Protein Rice Krispie Treats

  • 4 cups (150g) rice cereal
  • 200g marshmallows (about 30 large/jumbo marshmallows, but better to weigh out)
  • ¼ cup (56g) light butter*
  • 3 scoops (96g) XTEND Pro, Vanilla Ice Cream
  • Pinch salt
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract (optional)

Chocolate Protein Topping

Notes

*Light butter can be found near the butter in most grocery stores. It is about 4g fat per tbsp compared to 10-11 of regular butter. Some brand names would be “Country Crock” or “I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter”

Instructions

  1. Line a 5x9 baking dish or pan with parchment paper.
  2. Heat marshmallows and light butter in a large microwave safe bowl. Heat for 60 seconds, and then mix. Heat for another 30 seconds, or until melted enough to mix marshmallows and butter into one mixture.
  3. Add XTEND Pro, pinch salt, and vanilla extract to the melted marshmallow / butter mixture. In a large bowl, add rice cereal. Pour melted marshmallow mixture over top. Stir together until combined and sticky.
  4. Press into the prepared dish. Place in the fridge to begin firming up while you make the chocolate topping (optional).
  5. For chocolate topping, heat chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl for 60 seconds. Stir, and heat for another 30 seconds if needed to melt. Add milk and XTEND Pro and stir together until combined and a thick chocolate ganache consistency form.
  6. Spread chocolate over top of rice krispie treats. Place back in fridge for 15-20 minutes to chill and then cut into 8 bars and enjoy!
