To redeem myself, I decided to add a few ingredients to the original recipe on the box. Sure enough, just adding some dried cranberries and white chocolate chips made these the ideal adult treat for the kid in me.
6 cups Rice Krispies cereal
2 cups dried cranberries
1 cup white chocolate chips
1/4 cup butter
5 cups small marshmallows or 40 regular marshmallows
1 teaspoon vanilla
Add the cereal, cranberries and white chocolate chips into a large bowl.
In a large micro-wave bowl, add the marshmallows and butter. Microwave on high for 3 minutes. The package suggests that you stir the mixture after two minutes. Stir in the vanilla at the end of the cooking time.
I ended using less than the suggested marshmallows ( I guess some "mice" got into the bag,.....funny but I have the same problem with white chocolate reserved for baking, yet the other food is pretty safe)...... the recipe turned out just fine.
|Pour the mixture into the large bowl containing the cereal mixture and stir with a wooden spoon to combine.
