I cannot believe it has been over a month since I posted! These past few weeks have been a whirlwind… We moved to the suburbs (temporarily), I started my first teaching job, and Rob started his new job at another ranch. It has been an adjustment to say the least!
Yesterday was the first day I didn’t have anything to do in what feels like FOREVER! I was so happy to sit on the couch with my dogs, watch TV, snack, and do nothing. Well, mostly nothing… I did get off the couch to make the most fabulous snack in the world.
If you’re anything like me, you constantly struggle deciding if you want something sweet or salty. Yesterday, I decided enough was enough! I had to make a snack with the perfect sweet to salty ratio, so I did something kind of crazy… I made crispy treats, but instead of the rice cereal everyone is used to, I use wavy potato chips. Yes, you read that right. Potato chips! The saltiness from the chips mixed with the sugary marshmallows is a combination that is absolutely to die for. As if potato chip crispies weren’t wacky enough, I added mini m&m’s, peanut butter chips, more marshmallows, and pretzel sticks.
THESE. ARE. SO. ADDICTING. I know you’ll love them!
I feel like the first picture on every one of my posts is butter…
Marshmallows going in!
At first, you’ll wonder if they’ll ever melt and combine with the butter.
But just keep stirring…
And eventually you’ll get this!
I just banged on the bag with my fists a few times, opened it, and wah-lah! Perfectly crushed chips.
Scoop 5 cups out of the bag and pour into the marshmallow+butter mixture.
Stir to combine, eat a massive spoonful, and think about how wonder and perfect this combination is.
Plain potato chip crispies are delicous, but since when do I ever do plain? These extra additions are completely up to your personal preference. I like mini m&ms, peanut butter, and some salty pretzels. Feel free to add anything you want!
This step is essential! Do NOT forget to the parchment paper!
Press it into the pan and sprinkle some more m&ms over the top.
Once it has cooled in the fridge, it will come out of the pan and off the parchment paper with ease.
Cut it into small square for bite sized deliciousness!
Sweet and salty perfection!
All these ingredients go so well together! I’m not kidding, you won’t be able to eat just one of these!
- 3 tablespoons of unsalted butter
- 4 1/2 cups of marshmallows, separated
- 5 cups of crushed wavy potato chips
- 3/4 cup of mini m&ms
- 3/4 cup of peanut butter chips
- 3/4 cup slightly crushed pretzel sticks
In a large pot on low-medium heat melt the butter. Once the butter is melted, add 4 cups of marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Turn off the heat and add the crushed potato chips. Let this mixture cool completely, so the next ingredients won’t melt. After it has cooled, add the mini m&ms, peanut butter chips, 1/2 cup of marshmallows, and pretzel sticks. Stir until totally combined. Press the mixture into the bottom of a 9×9 pan lined with parchment paper. Sprinkle some more m&ms over the top. Let it set in the fridge for about 30 minutes. Cut, serve, enjoy!
