Brown Rice Crispy Treats & Pops
I’m currently blogging from a very weak internet connection at the Marriot Residence Inn in Pentagon City…
We got some horrible thunder storms yesterday with 60-70 mile per hour winds. It was awful. I haven’t seen a storm like that since my hurricane days in South Texas. Our neighborhood looks pretty sad 🙁 Luckily nobody was hurt… but there are huge trees on top of people homes, live power lines that are loose. So obviously we have no electricity 🙁 We’re hoping it’ll be back in the next day or two.
If you’ve sent me an email… It may take a few days to get back to you. Thanks for your patience 🙂
Before this mini-disaster happened… I made some Brown Rice Crispy Treats and some Strawberry + Mango Pops 🙂
I like my rice crispy treats nice and gooey 🙂
Every time I follow the original recipe I think they taste too dry…
My trick? I decrease the amount of rice crispies and increase the amount of marshmallows!
Here’s my concoction:
- 5 cups brown rice crispy’s
- 1 10 oz bag marshmallow, plus another 1/2 of a 10 oz bag.
- 3 tablespoons butter
In a large saucepan, melt the butter on low heat. Add all the marshmallows and stir on low heat until completely melted. Once melted, turn off heat and add rice crispies. Stir until combined. Gently pour mixture into a 8×8 pan that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Let set for about 30-40 minutes, then cut into bars.
These are sooooo good 🙂
I also made another batch of Popsicles for M… which are probably now melted in our freezer that has no power 🙁
In the mix is Strawberries, Mangos, and a few chunks of Pineapple I had left.
These came out so good! At least M got to enjoy one of them before the storm 🙂
I hope you have a great weekend!
I’ll be back on Monday… hopefully back in my house with power 🙂
i could seriously use some strawberry mango pops right now! tonight i’m going to find Popsicle forms and make some!
Omg how scary! I was in minnesota visiting friends and there was a hurricane warning and I was scared out of my mind! Glad everyone is ok tho!
You are going to think I’m lying, but I made almost this exact same recipe early this am before reading. I always use extra marshmellows (I buy the 16 oz bag and keep the rice krispies at 6 cups.) But, this was the first time I tried gluten-free brown rice krispies. Yum!
I hope your power come back soon, and that you don’t have to stay away to long!
Yikes, hope everything is ok!
I want a rice crispy treat now!!!
Oh no! Sorry about the power and everyone that is having difficulties! I hope everything settles down soon!
Your rice crispy’s look yummy and the pops sound delicious too. I need to make the crispy’s for my boys. They would love the gooeyness of yours!
I will be thinking about you guys. Hope things get back to normal soon!
Sorry to hear about your storm. Live lines, no good. Your brown rice crispies look good. I didn’t know they came in brown rice. Sounds like a good alternative. And I like mine gooey too!! Have a good weekend.
Sorry to hear about your storm. Live lines, no good. Your brown rice crispies look mighty fine. I didn’t know they came in brown rice. Sounds like a good alternative. And I like mine gooey too!! Have a wonderful weekend.
The VA/MD/DC area seems to be getting hit with such weird and uncanny weather the past few years — it’s been about 15 years since I was in that area in college, but I only remember the occasional weird storm. Now you have that freakish winter snowstorm and now this? Crazy!!
These Brown Rice Crispy Treats look SO YUMMY!!!!
popsicles look so good , didn’t know you can freeze pineapple?
Brown Rice Krispies!? I didn’t know there was such a thing! I absolutely LOVE rice krispie treats – they’re a favorite! I’d take them over brownies, ice cream…most anything!
