Good Morning Lovelies! I have a new recipe for you today. About time right? I feel like it has been forever since I shared a recipe here. Last night the red heads and I were craving something yummy for dessert. We had eaten leftovers for dinner and needed a little special something to sweeten up our day. I went to my pantry and got out our coconut oil, rice krispies, and marshmallows. Yumminess in the making!
I used coconut oil in place of the traditional butter you would find in krispy treats. I love coconut oil, since it is so versatile. I use it now for everything. It can replace butter in recipes and is great to use in place of sprays (when greasing your pans). I will have to do a post on this soon. If you don't have coconut oil, you can use margarine or butter.
Ready to make some pure sweetness?
Let's get to it!
Delicious Rice Krispy Treats
1 16 oz. bag of marshmallows
4 tbl coconut oil (could also substitute margarine/butter)
5 cups rice krispy cereal.
Place coconut oil and marshmallows in a pot. Cook on low heat, until marshmallows have melted. Add cereal. Stir to combine and then place in a greased 9x13 baking dish.
Allow your treats to sit and cool. I made it about 20 minutes before the littles and I dug in. We have absolutely no self control:)
* I brush my pans with coconut oil. It is a healthier alternative to the sprays.
* To flatten my krispy treats, I use the back of a spatula (brushed with coconut oil).
