Chocolate-dipped Sriracha Rice Krispies treats

Some like it hot! These aren't your mama's Rice Krispies treats.

The Kitchen Paper
A boost of Siracha hot sauce kicks up the heat in these chocolate-dipped Rice Krispies treats.

These are spicy! Kinda. And dipped in chocolate! Halfway. And just as marshmallowy and delish as usual.

You might be asking: are they good? Uhhhh yeah, they’re good. The sweetness of the marshmallow and chocolate offsets the spicy sriracha that comes through at the end – totally new flavor experience for me, and semi-addicting!

Chocolate-Dipped Sriracha Rice Krispies Treats

3 tablespoons butter
1 10-ounce package of marshmallows (about 4 cups)
1-1/2 tablespoons sriracha (or other spicy spicy hot sauce)
6 cups puffed rice cereal (like Rice Krispies)
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

1. Prepare an 8"x8" pan with butter and wax paper.

2. In a large soup pot over medium heat, melt the butter. When the butter is melted, add the marshmallows. Stir until the marshmallows are completely melted, then stir in the Sriracha hot sauce and turn off the heat.

3. Add the cereal and mix everything together.

4. When everything is mixed together, firmly press it into your prepared pan using a buttered spatula.

5. Let the bars cool for at least an hour (or 30 minutes in the fridge/freezer).

6. When the bars are cool and firm, remove from the pan and cut into small pieces. Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave (30 seconds at first, then 15 seconds at a time stirring between rounds until melted), and dip the Rice Krispies treats so that they're halfway covered with chocolate.

7. Lay the dipped bars on a cooling rack, and let dry. Enjoy ASAP, and store in an airtight container.

8. Enjoy!

Dear Reader,

About a year ago, I happened upon this statement about the Monitor in the Harvard Business Review – under the charming heading of “do things that don’t interest you”:

“Many things that end up” being meaningful, writes social scientist Joseph Grenny, “have come from conference workshops, articles, or online videos that began as a chore and ended with an insight. My work in Kenya, for example, was heavily influenced by a Christian Science Monitor article I had forced myself to read 10 years earlier. Sometimes, we call things ‘boring’ simply because they lie outside the box we are currently in.”

If you were to come up with a punchline to a joke about the Monitor, that would probably be it. We’re seen as being global, fair, insightful, and perhaps a bit too earnest. We’re the bran muffin of journalism.

But you know what? We change lives. And I’m going to argue that we change lives precisely because we force open that too-small box that most human beings think they live in.

The Monitor is a peculiar little publication that’s hard for the world to figure out. We’re run by a church, but we’re not only for church members and we’re not about converting people. We’re known as being fair even as the world becomes as polarized as at any time since the newspaper’s founding in 1908.

We have a mission beyond circulation, we want to bridge divides. We’re about kicking down the door of thought everywhere and saying, “You are bigger and more capable than you realize. And we can prove it.”
