Ah, Rice Krispie Treats. A childhood favorite. Why is it that some of my yummiest childhood memories are filled with the worst ingredients? The typical Rice Krispie treat is made with Rice Krispie cereal (white rice cereal), a lot of butter, sometimes peanut butter, and marshmallows. Those fluffy little marshmallows are so unassuming, but they are packed with sugar, artificial flavors, and even food dyes. (Blue 1-Not sure why since they are white?!)
Luckily it isn’t that difficult to make a Rice Krispie-like treat that is much healthier than the original version. A quick ingredient swap and you are in business.
