This is the recipe for the original rice krispies treats squares...It never fails! Plus, it is a great way to use up a box of cereal! For best results, use fresh marshmallows. I have replaced the butter once with Mott's Healthy Baking butter or oil substitute (it was basically an unsweetened apple sauce) and they still turned out great!
Gary Rhodes Recipe: "I love having afternoon tea cakes, hot-cross buns, and scones. They are treats the British enjoy and they are so easy to get hold of in Britain - almost every shop sells them. Crumpets warmed and served toasted with lots of butter and jam are also a favorite. So, when a friend of mine passed on this recipe to me, I just had to try it. They do work and, with lots of butter, are delicious".
This is really a basic recipe, you can use whatever you like for seasoning. I use Mrs Dash seasonings, Italian seasonings, Garlic Powder, Cajun seasonings and other times I just make them with a little salt and pepper. This basic recipe contains roughly 0.2 grams of fat and 206 calories per potato.
I wanted cornbread for dinner and was having a hard time finding a good low fat recipe. Many included corn kernels and my family won't eat that in cornbread! I came across this one in a Weight Watchers cookbook, though this recipe was listed in order for you to make it to use in cornbread stuffing. Therefore I was worried that it would not be good to eat on its own. But it was tasty! And it does not have the funny consistency that some fat free baked goods do. It makes 12 servings and each serving is only 2 WW points!
These are really tasty, although different from the usual marshmallow treats. They hold together very well, but remained a bit too sticky after cooling. Try keeping them in the refrigerator. I found this recipe at lalecheleague.org.
