Snap. Crackle. Pop.
Those three words evoke so many memories from childhood for me, the Rice Krispies jingle was always fun to sing and the three little elves were adorable – they were elves, right? My kids love the taste of Rice Krispies Original Cereal, but I have to admit that we use it more often to make Rice Krispies Marshmallow Squares than anything else.
I love picking up a new box of cereal from the store, and shaking it like a maraca! I have always used the original Rice Krispies Square recipe found on the box, but thankfully they have an online recipe as well! I tend to mix it up and add things to the squares from things I have at home – dried fruit, chocolate chips, cinnamon, white chocolate drizzle, or even M&Ms!
It’s a great recipe to make with the kids because it’s simple to follow the easy directions, and it’s an amazing snack! If my kids are in a grumpy mood, it’s so easy to whip up a batch of marshmallow squares and see the smiles developing on their faces!
My favourite way to eat them? In a bowl with vanilla flavoured almond milk – the snap, crackle, and pop brings back so many memories for me, it’s my favourite late night snack! How do you like eating your Rice Krispies?
