Cinnamon Toffee Rice Krispie Bars

Rice Krispie Bars are so much fun! They are easy to whip up, loved by kids and adults alike, and can be embellished with any number of yummy things to take them over the top. After being assigned to Mommy's Menu for this month's Secret Recipe Club, it didn't take me long to realize that this recipe would be a winner.

And if you have little helpers in the kitchen, this is a perfect recipe to make with them. I was lucky enough in this case to have an assistant.

"I love cooking with Sara!"

Just like "regular" krispie bars, start by melting the butter over medium low heat. Then add one of the "embellishments" - cinnamon.

Add the marshmallows and continue to cook and stir

until the marshmallows are melted and smooth. Pour the cereal into a large bowl and stir in the toffee chips.

Pour in the melted marshmallows and stir well until all the cereal is coated. With lightly greased hands, pat the mixture into a greased 9x13 pan.

For the topping, combine the chocolate chips and the shortening in a small bowl

and heat on 50% power in the microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring between each heating, until the chips are melted and can be stirred smoothly. Drizzle over the bars.

Refrigerate the bars for an hour or so to set the topping.
