Marshmallow Rice Crispies
My son goes through cereal phases. One week it will be Cornflakes for breakfast, the next Coco Pops. When the Coco Pops get boring, he’ll request Rise Crispies. So the trend goes on. Egg on Toast is his favourite but I don’t always have time in the mornings. Maybe not time, but energy……ok so I’m not a morning person!
I’m always making Crunchies for my husband, so the cornflakes seldom go to waste. I add about 125ml of crushed cornflakes to my Crunchie mix. Left over Coco Pops get transformed into lovely Rice Crispie treats which are made by mixing melted chocolate and sour cherries with Coco Pops and finally, plain Rice Crispies get morphed (love that word) into Marshmallow Rice Crispie treats by combining only 3 ingredients. I pack these in for school which go down like an absolute luxury.
4 handfuls of marshmallows
5 cups rice crispies
Melt the butter and marshmallows over low heat. Be careful not the burn as this will spoil the entire batch. Once melted, remove from heat and add the rice crispies. Press mixture into a rectangular dish. Cut into desired size squares and place in fridge to set. It’s as easy as that.
