A delicious variation of the classic chewy treats. These are flavoured with ground cardamom and dotted with cashews and golden raisins.
These are definitely a keeper - if you like Indian rice pudding, then you will like these. Instead of cashews, I used almonds (like one of the other reviewers) and they turned out excellent. And this is a tip that applies to all rice krispy treats - make sure that you sort of coax the krispies into the baking dish - don't press too hard, or they'll be dense and heavy instead of light and airy. - 22 Dec 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I love these and I love cardamom! I used half a cup of raisins and half a cup of dried cranberries. All I had in the house were walnuts so I used those instead of cashews. This is an amazing recipe. It's one I'm sure I'll be using for years to come! - 12 May 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
A crispy rice treat for grown-ups! The spice is very subtle and tasty. I substituted almonds for the cashews and they worked just as well. I also sprinkled just a bit of salt over the top as the bars were setting for a sweet/salt taste. Will definitely make again. - 15 Mar 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
