Oh my gosh, you guys! I am in love with these choc chip bacon rice krispies, they are the perfect Wednesday afternoon snack.
They are sweet, salty and crunchy. Perfect rice kripies studded with choc chips and bacon pieces.
Does snack life get any better? Right now, no, no it doesn’t! These are easy to make and oh so addictive! You may not be able to stop at one… just warning you they are that good.
Just look at that bacon studded goodness!
Everyday needs bacon right? Hells yes it does!
We’ve been taking these to work for afternoon tea, Marc loves them even more than I do. They will keep for up to two weeks in the fridge, if they last that long.
I just can’t stop with adding bacon to sweets.It all started with pancakes, bacon & maple syrup and has almost become an obsession.
How do you feel about bacon with sweets? I know it’s become popular but I also know that as much as I love it it’s not for everyone.
I have been experimenting with some new unusual combos, once I have perfected them I will share them with you.
