Rice Krispy Treats for Adults

3 December 2009

Are we making the old standby — overly sweet and sugary?

A kids' treat?

No! Use real butter, and don’t only melt it — let it brown and get that lovely nutty aroma.

Melt the butter, let it brown

When you stir in the marshmallows, throw in 1/4 tsp of salt. The stirring takes forever.

Stir the marshmallows until smooth

Use the butter wrapper to press the treat into your greased pan. (Yes — this uses a whole stick of butter. But that isn’t so much when you distribute it among the servings. And it’s not like you should make these every week! Plus, how much fat do you think is in ice cream, huh? And some people have THAT every week…)

Press into a greased pan

Do you have the patience to let it cool?

Let it cool

    and… being that i am not a vegetarian/vegan, i don’t have to go through what appears to be the deep emotional / philosophical debate it seems some of you do when decided whether or not to imbibe in marshmallows. I just dive and and enjoy the yummyness that is the gooeyness of jet puffed lol

    I saw vegan marshmallows at the Puget Sound Consumer Co-op the other day. I didn’t look to see what was used to replace the gelatin. They were small, but not miniature, and pretty expensive.
    There are also Kosher marshmallows, but they use fish-based gelatin. It doesn’t make them taste fishy, but it is from animals.
