I often experiment with recipes, which can either end deliciously or with inedible crap and wasted time/ materials. I used to be bitter about failed experiments but after endless batches of failed bread puddings and cheesecakes you tend to get used to it. In fact, I just pulled a treat out of the oven that started off as chocolate chip cookies and ended in a dark chocolate, date fruit cake, so we’ll see how that turns out tomorrow. I ran out of butter, milk, and white sugar during the composition process so cross your fingers for me.
Rice Krispies Treats happen to be one of the sweets that are fool proof. You can’t go wrong melting butter and marshmallows and then adding cereal. And the beauty of Rice Krispies is that it allows some room for creativity. You can sub in Raisin Bran (although please don’t) and other cereals; or mix in sprinkles, chocolate chips or other candy. For this batch I stuck with two classics, Fruity Pebbles and peanut butter chip. Find the recipe here and feel free to express yourself through cereal.
