Butterfinger Rice Krispies Treats- Halloween Week

Yum

This week is Halloween and my mother's birthday.  So I have lots of reasons to go a little sugar crazy on the blog this week.  You see, my mother has a major sweet tooth.  She loves dessert and is notorious for giving the grand-kids a little sweet treat after meals (even a couple of jelly beans from her special stash next to her easy chair).  Yes... they love her for it!    

One of her favorite candy bars is the Butterfinger Bar.  When my sister buys multi-candy packs, my mother will slowly fish out all the Butterfinger candies.  When she does that, it always cracks me up because my mother does not ask for much in life, always put others first and is a total giver to everyone.  The fact that she fishes out her favorite candy bar lets you know that even the "givers" of this world have something that they are not willing to share.  So don't get between her and her favorite chocolates. Ha!ha!

I bought a bag of Butterfingers just so I could make her some treats to celebrate her birthday.  She LOVED these rice krispies treats.  I made her a whole container full  of them and delivered them today so she could enjoy a little sweet treat every day until her birthday.   It's going to be a sweet week... get ready.

  6. That would be a kid-friendly treat as well. Do you share your Mother's sweet tooth? I have one too, but I am very careful not to eat sugar very often. It makes me fat. Hope your mother has a very happy birthday. With you as a daughter, I am sure she will! Have a good time, Ramona.

    1. I used the "snack size". They are about 1 1/2 to 2 inches long each. If you use the large full size candy bars, use half as many candy bars. If you use the mini size then you will need to double the quantity of candy bars. Enjoy. :)
