Butterscotch Hennessy Rice Krispies

Butterscotch Hennessy Rice Krispies are the grown up version of Rice Krispies. I mean, feel free to give them to your kids because they are delicious but be prepared for everyone to tell you what a horrible parent you are.  

You know, because it’s everyones business how you run your life but it’s none of your business how they run their life.  Ah, people.

Have you noticed something different with this post?  It was mentioned to me that my photography for my pastries needed work.  So this is me being a professional and trying to make everything marketable.  So I went and bought some backdrops, cake stands, plates and all this stuff to put in my pictures.  This way you think I don’t have a real job and that I actually live a really cool perfect life of just baking in my kitchen for my lovely family.  Not even close.

I will say that I like the back drops and they do change the pictures up and make the photography fun.  Originally I liked the backdrop that I had bought for this picture, until I snapped the picture.  It looks like I made these Butterscotch Hennessy Rice Krispies back in the 70’s and snapped a picture in my parents dining room with the paneled walls.

Which I kinda wish I could go back in time because the burnt orange curtains would have went beautifully with the color of the butterscotch chips.


I’m no stranger to butterscotch.  I love butterscotch and even more so as I get older. I’ve made some recipes in the past using butterscotch and I try to use it often.  The one obstacle with butterscotch is that it can over power a recipe.  It’s like peanut butter.  It’s good but there is a line.

I always found Rice Krispies a bit on the boring side and just blah.  I wanted to create something about them that made you want to go back for more.

What I love about these Rice Krispie bars is the Hennessy.  I love to bake with booze and the Hennessy not only pairs magically with the butterscotch, but when they come together they both soften each other and create a wonderful marriage of flavors.  The butterscotch chips give it a little more structure and cuts back on the overly sweet marshmallowy stickiness.

By the time you read this I will be boarding a plane bound for Toledo, Ohio.  I go back once a year to remind myself why I left.  If you’re in the Toledo area and want to have lunch or wings at Outback.  Let me know.  I’m always down for food or just plain tomfoolery.

Have a great week everyone!

    You’re killin me, booze in your rice Krispie treats. I love it!

  3. Gus, did you say “Hennessy”? SOLD!

    You know, I’ve never cared for Rice Krispie bars, they’re just too sweet for my taste. I’m not a big fan of butterscotch, either. But this combination sounds like a winner. Love the image of the bars on the burner, how cool is that!

    True story: Back on May 15th I was riding in the car with my daughter. My shoulder was aching and she asked if I needed some Advil or Aleve. I said, “No, but a bottle of Hennessy would be a good muscle relaxer.” The nearest Total Wine & More was too far and I needed to get the groceries out of her trunk and into my refrigerator, (it gets hot and humid early here in Houston, TX). Got home, unloaded the groceries, took an Aleve, and didn’t think any more about it. A few days later, she called to tell me that a bottle of Hennessy was sitting on her counter just waiting for me! Love that kid!!

    Hey Lizzie, if you’re a Hennessy drinker then you’ll love these. It really pairs with the butterscotch quite well. I liked the photo of the bars on the burner myself. Totally unplanned but it worked! Ha! Having a bottle of Hennessy waiting for you… Your daughter is awesome!

    Ha! Check it out Debbie… It’s wonderful. You won’t be able to have regular Rice Krispies again.
