I finally got my hands on Dreena Burton’s Eat, Drink and Be Vegan and while most of the recipes are pretty healthy, the first one I tried was the “nice krispie squares”. The rest of the recipes look amazing, I look forward to trying more soon!
Dreena actually shares two recipes for rice krispie squares: a traditional version with vegan margarine and marshmallows, and a “nicer” version with macadamia nut butter. That recipe is found on her website here. I’m sure I’ll try the latter eventually, but in the meantime, I made Dreena’s nice krispie squares using Becel vegan margarine, Nature’s Path rice cereal and Dandies vegan marshmallows.
Making rice krispie squares are always a fun activity with the kids. Mine particularly enjoyed stirring the melting marshmallows on the stove, because if you’re a child, there is just about nothing as fun as turning something into goo.
The result? A very authentic tasting rice krispie treat. Sweet and gooey (with pretty much no redeeming nutritional value), they are just like the treats I grew up with and were a fun indulgence. The kids gave them too sticky thumbs up!
