Strawberry Cocoa Crispy Rice Treats

Ingredients

  • 6 cups Erewhon Cocoa Crispy Brown Rice cereal
  • 10 ounces marshmallows (I like the mini ones best…its easier to “steal” one or two or twenty)
  • 1/4 cup margarine
  • 1/4 cup strawberry preserves
  • Sprinkles!!

Instructions

Measure the cereal into a large mixing bowl. Spray a 9x13-inch pan with cooking spray.

Melt the margarine, marshmallows, and jam over medium heat in a saucepan, stirring constantly until marshmallows are just dissolved. Immediately pour into mixing bowl with cereal and stir until completely and evenly coated. Pour mixture into sprayed pan and flatten.

[I usually flatten the treats with my hands, after liberally spraying them with more cooking spray. You can also spray a spatula if you want to be more civilized, but then there isn't anything to lick off your fingers. Not that I would do that.]

These may be my new favorite easy no-fuss dessert. I cut them and put them in the freezer and they were GREAT still partly frozen on those ridonkulously humid days last week. And even on the not so ridonkulously humid days of this past week.
