Rice Krispies

Note: This is an old post showing a time when I could have chocolate. My IC has worsened severely.  I can no longer have even a lick of chocolate, so tread cautiously.

I’ve bought Rice Krispies treats many years ago in the package and then I learned the extremely simple recipe that I will share with you.  Now I just make them at home in a few minutes and everyone loves them. 🙂  Bonus – almost no packaging to throw away, excluding your marshmallow bag!  I’m just all for natural ingredients lately with no preservatives, fake coloring or flavors, additives.

RICE KRISPIES TREATS:  “Ingredients:  TOASTED RICE CEREAL (RICE, SUGAR, SALT, MALT FLAVORING, NIACINAMIDE, REDUCED IRON, RIBOFLAVIN [VITAMIN B2], FOLIC ACID), MARSHMALLOW (CORN SYRUP, SUGAR, GELATIN, NATURAL AND ARTIFICIAL FLAVOR), FRUCTOSE, MARGARINE (VEGETABLE OIL [SOYBEAN AND PALM OIL WITH TBHQ FOR FRESHNESS], WATER, NATURAL AND ARTIFICIAL BUTTER FLAVOR [CONTAINS MILK], DATEM, ACETYLATED MONOGLYCERIDES, BHT FOR FRESHNESS, VITAMIN A PALMITATE, VITAMIN D), CORN SYRUP SOLIDS, CONTAINS TWO PERCENT OR LESS OF DEXTROSE, GLYCERIN, SALT, NIACINAMIDE, PYRIDOXINE HYDROCHLORIDE (VITAMIN B6), THIAMIN HYDROCHLORIDE (VITAMIN B1), RIBOFLAVIN (VITAMIN B2), SOY LECITHIN.

 

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 3 cups mini marshallows (10 oz. regular bag)
  • 6 cups Rice Krispie, or generic, cereal
  • Optional: safe treats to add, such as coconut chips/peanut butter chips (not chocolate, unfortunately).

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Spray a 13″ x 9″ pan with nonstick spray, set aside.
  2. Have all your ingredients measured and in bowls, ready to go.  This recipe goes quickly and mise en place is critical.  
  3. In a large saucepan, melt butter over low heat.
  4. Add mini marshmallows and continue to stir until they have completely melted.  Remove from heat.
  5. Stir in the cereal, coating them well with the melted marshmallow mixture.
  6. Add in any chips you can tolerate (coconut chips, peanut butter chips), mix well.  Add other ingredients or toppings as desired.
  7. Cut into squares once the mixture slightly cools (about 10 minutes), but before it really hardens!
  8. Before I receive hate mail, I’ll tell you step 8 is very important.  Clean your pan by putting it under warm water with some soap to soften the mess. 🙂
