Krispy Lessons

Lessons Learnt from yesterday's session of making rice krspy treats -

1. You cannot add chocolate chips to your rice krispy treats. The heat will just melt the chocolate and all you have is messy, ugly looking treats that tend to crumble coz the chocolate get in the way of the marshmallows. (But they still taste yummeh, so don't worry, your kids will eat them up in a jiffy)

2. If you want too add other ingredients to your treats, try nuts or raisins.

3. A pizza cutter (the wheel kind) is a good tool to use to cut up your treats into strips. Pull the cutter towards you instead of pushing it. It's easier to apply pressure on the blade that way.

4. A knife still works best for cutting your strips into squares. A flat blade, tapped hard on the treats works better than a serated blade, because the sawing motion might cause the treats to break up.

5. Using pink marshmallows with white rice krispies creates pretty girly treats.

6. The cheapest rice krispies you can find is at the indian grocery store, sold in plastic bags, not fancy boxes.

7. Always make your rice krispy treats at the last minute, because they dont last long. They can keep long in an airtight container, but some will magically dissapear before Eid day. You are forewarned.

  3. Elisa, if you want to put choc chip or rice put it after the thing has been cooked - off fire. But if bake, should not be a problem:-) I think

  5. good tips!! anyway, selamat hari raya :)

  6. Hope it is not too late to say Selamat hari raya to you and your family. :)

  7. These are my husband's favorite treat. He likes them plain but I prefer them with a peanut butter icing on them...delicious.
    The same recipe works pretty well with just about any crispy cereal (corn flakes are awesome) if you can't find Rice krispies very easily.
