Maple Bacon Rice Krispie Treats

Today is my last day on this mini vacation in St. Louis with my husband. Cue the sad music.

We have certainly eaten our way through the city as best as we could {and as much as our appetites would allow} and you can expect a post about everything delicious we found in the near future. But for now though, we’re both heading back to reality; him back to army training and me back to the kiddos.

It’s so lovely being reminded that I have a husband…I forget how much I love him, but then we get back together and it’s like “Oh yeah!! I forgot that this is what it’s like to have a spouse!” I only have to wait until May to have him back in my life 24/7. #wompwomp

So, it’s going to be a pretty rough adjustment back home, I’m expecting. But I am super excited to see my kids! Just last night, Gord and I were looking at videos of those two rascals and reminiscing just how fast time flies {because it really does!}

Distance does in fact make the heart grow fonder for my husband…and for my kids.

Anyways, *insert fancy segue here* I just realized I didn’t upload all my photos to the blog for my next crock-pot recipe installment since that is the theme this month, but I did find these pictures for Maple Bacon Rice Krispie Treats that I meant to post weeks ago, but completely forgot about.

Sometimes I forget things.

More like ALL THE TIME.


Maple Bacon Rice Krispie Treats

These Maple Bacon Rice Krispie Treats are perfectly sweet and salty, savory, chewy, crunchy and are basically good enough to eat for breakfast! I mean, you’ve got your cereal, your bacon and maple syrup all together in one easily transportable bar! They taste like french toast and bacon smothered in maple syrup. Totally amazing!

I’ve made two batches of these in the last little while and they seriously do not last long. My daughter likes to pick the pieces with the most amount of marshmallows while my son likes the pieces with the most bacon. Typical of my kids.

Just like regular rice krispie treats, these do not take very long to make. Just a few minutes to melt the marshmallows, butter and maple syrup together, then add in the remaining ingredients and press into your pan. Let them come to room temp to cut or feel free to eat them out of the pot hot and sticky! YUM. I may or may not have done that…

Maple Bacon Rice Krispie Treats

Anyways, if you’re a rice krispie treat lover {like me!} then you’re probably headed out to get the ingredients right away! You’re seriously going to want to make these asap because they are a fast and delicious treat everyone will love!!

Have a great day! See you on Wednesday with another crock-pot recipe 🙂

    Well…now I need to go buy more bacon. These look…what’s the word… FABULOUS! One more bacon recipe to add to the “have to make this now” category.

    Distance DOES make the heart grow fonder! But I don’t think I could go that long without seeing my hubs. You are one tough cookie.
    Or rice krispie.
    Either way, at least you have these to console you. I justsohappened to get 32 POUNDS ( no lie) of bacon..and now I will make ALL of these. Pinned!

    I know how it feels to be a military wife. I was one in my 20’s. It gets easier! I got involved with the local Family Support Group and it helped immensely. I hope the time passes as quickly for you as it did me! <3

    I’m so glad that you were able to spend this time with your hubby. AND I’m so glad you were willing to put bacon in rice crispy treats….who would have thought and yet it seems so natural.

    I never liked bacon until pregnancy with my second. Then I started craving it ALL the TIME! Chocolate covered, on donuts, on my burgers, basically in every recipe I ever had…. Pretty much everything. These pictures made my mouth water and bring on a huge craving. I just had to remind myself I’m not pregnant lol! Can’t wait to try them 🙂

    Girl, I am about ready to lick the laptop screen!!!!!!!!!!!!! OMGosh those look amazing!!! Anyone who knows me knows I am a baconaholic LOL. I can taste them already.

    Thank you to you and your husband for your sacrifice and service to this country.

      I use the precooked bacon because it’s already cured and can be stored at room temperature. If you use real bacon, I’d recommend eating the whole pan within 24 hours. You don’t want it sitting out very long with the real bacon. I think organic rice krispies would work just fine in place of the original.

    I pinned these and can’t wait to make them. I think might even try them with chocolate dipped bacon (or maybe just add choc chips). 🙂


    P.S. I loved your post on Instagram about shopping in your sleep. I can’t wait to see more!

    Patrick from Ontario Canada: To kick up the flavor i poked holes into the squares and filled them with extra chopped bacon then basted the top with more bacon grease. This is a heart attack in a pan but ohhh so Good !
