Vegan Rice Krispies Treats
And believe it or not, this is the first time I've ever made classic Rice Krispies Treats! I've made a peanut butter version that didn't involve marshmallows, but this was my first go at the classic. I think it's because I'm not a huge marshmallow fan, unlike my husband. But these treats are really yummy, I have to admit! Although I think I'd like them better if they were topped with chocolate....anyway, here's what I did:
1 bag Dandies vegan marshmallows
3 TBs Earth Balance whipped non-hydrogenated margarine
4 1/2 cups puffed rice cereal
Place the cereal in a large bowl and set aside. In a large pot, melt the margarine and then add in the marshmallows. Stir constantly until the marshmallows melt down into a sticky goo. Carefully pour the goo over the cereal and stir (I used two wooden spoons) until everything is nice and combined. Once it's cool enough to handle, press the mixture into a 8X8 or so brownie pan and let set. Enjoy!
