Candy Bar Bacon Rice Crispy Treats
With International Bacon Day coming up on the first Saturday in September, we wanted to evolve our Bacon Rice Crispy Treats into a new beast. And the first thing that naturally comes to mind when it comes to bacon desserts is CHOCOLATE! So we thought, well, why not stuff these crunchy lil’ guys with chocolate candy bars! With a simple addition like that, we not only brought our bacon & chocolate game to a new level, we also added hints of buttery caramel and smooth peanut butter.
The great thing about these bars is that you can use any kind of chocolate bar you want. If you want to use whole size bars, all you have to do it cut them up into smaller pieces. So go wild and fulfill your bacon chocolate cravings with these gooey treats.

Lightly grease a 7×11 baking dish, set aside.
Mix together the Reese’s, Snickers, Twix, and Rolos.
In a large bowl, melt 4 Tablespoons butter and the marshmallows in the microwave for 1 minute. Stir in the chopped bacon.
Pour the cereal into the marshmallow mixture and stir until completely combined. Gently press half the cereal mixture into the buttered 7×11 pan.
Randomly place the candy pieces over the top of the rice crispies in the pan. Spoon the rest of the rice crispies over the top and press down gently. Let cool completely. Cut into squares.
