Another use for dud rice krispies

krisp-treat

I found another use for those dreadful supermarket own brand rice krispies.  After the delicious Rice Krispie Chocolate Cakes I made, there were still plenty left, so I made some Rice Krispie Treats.  These involved marshmallow instead of chocolate.  The recipe I used called for 150gm of marshmallows (about 5 oz), plus roughly an eighth or a sixth cup of butter, and three cups of the dud rice krispies. I melted the butter with just a touch of oil to stop it burning, then stirred in the marshmallows, moving it around the non-stick pan so it didn’t burn. I took it off the heat and stirred in the krispies, making sure they were all covered. I poured the mixture into a baking tin that I’d lined with baking parchment. The stuff is very sticky, clinging to metal or wooden spoons, so I pressed it down with my fingers, using another piece of baking parchment on top to keep my fingers from sticking. That’s it. I let it cool then sliced it into sections. Quite nice, and very different from the chocolate crisp.
