I’ve been teaching my friend in Medellin to cook. It started on Christmas when we made meat sauce and apple pie. Recently I taught him how to make one of the best, easiest desserts ever…RICE KRISPIE TREATS. In his neighborhood he doesn’t have stores that carry all the imported foods (and by all, I mean the small selection you can actually buy in Medellin)…so we used what we could get…
COLORED MARSHMALLOWS AND CHOCO-KRISPIES.
Making these treats is super simple…you melt butter in a pan, add marshmallows, stir over med heat till marshmallows melt, stir the cereal into the melted marshmallows, then try to get the mixture into a plate/pan as quickly as possible before it cools and all sticks to the pot Sort of like this:
You’re going to want to line the plate with tinfoil or something as this mixture is quite sticky. Especially ours. We kind of used a lot of marshmallows (like double).
Then you just wait a few minutes for the mixture to cool while you clean up…or…while you practice for the Marshmallow-Mouth-Catching-Olympics
Once you’ve caught a few marshmallows in your mouth, the mixture is now cool and you can cut it into pieces and eat it.
So, how did these multi-colored Choco-Krispy treats turn out?
