While good chocolate makes everything better, I would argue that almond paste is a close second. So it seemed only natural that I would eventually make an almond rice krispie treat and, to be honest, I am a little peeved that I didn't do it sooner.
Almond Rice Krispie Treats
6 cups rice krispies
6 tbsp unsalted butter
12 oz mini marshmallows
5 oz almond paste
1 tsp almond extract
Make the rice krispie treats: Prepare a 9x13 (or square) pan with parchment paper. Melt the butter and almond paste over medium heat in a heavy bottomed saucepan, add the marshmallows. Once the marshmallows are 90% melted, remove from heat and gradually mix in the rice krispies. Once fully mixed, press evenly into the prepared pan.
Sprinkle with sliced or chopped almonds.
