About this recipe: This is a fantastic snack, which is quick and easy to make. They are crispy, chewy and incredibly moreish. Rice Krispies are mixed with melted butter, marshmallows, cinnamon, almonds and raisins, allowed to set and then cut into bars.
Delish!! All you other AR review-readers might think I'm crazy, but this is the first time I've ever actually made rice krispie squares; love to eat 'em, but never actually made them. I came across this recipe on a hot summer day. Craving something sweet and not wanting to heat up the whole house was my motivation to try this. I actually used the Multi-grain Rice Krispies (to make me feel better about the lack of nutritional value, and to add a little extra fiber) and Craisins (because that's what I had). But they turned out spectacular. Good twist on an old favourite! - 23 Jun 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Nothing takes me back to my childhood like rice kripsy treats and I never thought to tamper with a classic until this recipe, but these are wonderful and what I really like is that the add-ins don't detract from the original. You still taste and feel the crunch of the rice cereal and feel the stickiness of the marshmellow, it's just a grown-up version... although my kids loved them. - 21 Jul 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Okay, the nine cups of cereal to one package of marshmallows seemed really off to me, since I usually do about six cups to one bag of marshmallows. Plus, how on earth does that fit in an 8x8 pan?! Please tell me if I'm missing something. Are they intended to be super super crunchy? Anyway I made these with six cups of cereal for a 9x13 pan and they tasted really good. How could I not have thought to add cinnamon and raisins to rice krispie treats before? It's like an awesome, thick granola bar! - 09 Sep 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
