This evening my boyfriend (Tyler) asked if I was interested in doing another food exchange. I agreed, so Tyler walked over to my house for the exchange. I gave him some of my mom’s soup and cheese bread and he gave me a mini (21 g ) box of Rice Krispies. Normally I would just mix the Rice Krispies in with my other cereals and have them for breakfast. However, Tyler suggested I make mini Rice Krispies squares instead. I thought that was a brilliant idea. I love Rice Krispies squares and it was a few years since I had last had one.
I did a quick search on Google for a single serving Rice Krispies Squares recipe, but was unable to find one. I decided to take the plunge and invent my own.
Here is my recipe.
Mini Rice Krispies Squares
One box (21 g single serving) Rice Krispies
About 2 handfuls of mini marshmallows (the white kind)
About 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
About 1.5-2 tsp olive oil margarine
Turn stove on medium heat. In a small to medium sized pot or sauce pan melt the margarine. Add the mini marshmallows and stir until mostly melted (90%). Now add the vanilla extract and continue to stir. Once you have a gooey relatively smooth mixture add the Rice Krispies and continue to stir until evenly coated. Transfer the mixture to a non-greased small pan. Cut into two pieces if desired. Enjoy.
The squares turned out super yummy. The only thing I might change about the recipe if I make them again, would be to use ½-¼ tsp pure vanilla extract instead of 1 full tsp. I think it would be just as good with less.
