Smore Crispy Rice Treats

Smore Crispy Rice Treats

I was asked recently what I serve for my kiddie parties. Do I just have vegetable cups and fruit bowls for the kids? I’m so sorry to laugh but can you imagine being in a room of 12 (8-9yr old) children and them singing happy birthday to a vegetable platter with a candle?  There are times that you WANT to make a treat for your kids and this recipe is exactly that.  This is a treat! You can have this once in a while not every day. For this recipe I tried to make it as clean as possible. I don’t use artificial colors, its gluten free, dairy free, nut free and soy free.  It you can find organic crispy rice and non-GMO butter substitute (dairy tolerant can use organic butter) even better. 

INGREDIENTS:IMG_2969

  • 3 tablespoons butter or butter substitute
  • 1 package (10 oz., about 40) gluten free marshmallows 
  • 6 cups gluten free crispy rice
  • 12-15 gluten free marshmallows for topping
  • 1/4 cup of enjoy life dark chocolate morsels.

DIRECTIONS:

  1. In large saucepan melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat.
  1. Add crispy rice cereal. Stir until well coated.
  1. Let it cool enough that you can work with your hands and not burn yourself.  But not too cold that it is a solid mass. Give it about 3-5min to cool.
  1. Preheat your oven to broil.
  1. Line your cupcake/muffin pan with cupcake liners.
  1. Use a spoon to fill 12 cupcakes liners, I find that shaping it as a ball helps.
  1. Once all the cupcake liners are filled and flattened 12 marshmallows and top each treat with one.
  1. Place your pan on the lowest of the oven rack and let marshmallow brown.

WATCH THIS!

THIS STEP WILL TAKE LESS THAN A MIN!

STAND THERE WITH YOUR OVEN MITT READY!

  1. Once the marshmallow is brown, take it out and turn off the oven.
  1. Place your chocolate morsels in a microwave safe container and melt the chocolate.  (I just put mine on “reheat” for 1min).
  1. Take out the chocolate and give it a stir to smooth it out.
  1. Drizzle the chocolate over each treat.
  1. Best if served the same day.
