    Houmous Monster's Note:

    I really don't have much of a sweet-tooth, so I've modified this to have more cereal, the salt on the peanuts also helps cancel the sweetness. Great as a travel snack, and with peanuts they are quite filling. For food restrictions: THIS RECIPE ISN'T VEGETARIAN. Also check the cereal to make sure it is wheat-free.

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    squares

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a large pan melt the margarine over a low heat.
    2. 2
      Grease a tray that's about 9 x 11 inches and 2 inches deep. Also grease the spoon you'll use for stirring with and something like a cake slice.
    3. 3
      Add the marshmallows and stir till melted. Once melted continue to cook for 3 more minutes.
    4. 4
      Remove from heat and add rice cereal and any additional ingredients (e.g. peanuts). Mix till all the cereal is coated in marshmallow.
    5. 5
      With the spoon pour the mix out into the greased tray and use the cake slice to press the mixture into the tray.
    6. 6
      If the mix starts to stick to the cake slice you can grease it over top of the marshmallow already stuck on and continue.
    7. 7
      Any mixture left over can be put into greased ramikins.
    8. 8
      Allow to cool (they will stop being as sticky). This can be sped up in the fridge. I cut my squares apart with a large pizza cutter, but any knife will do.
    9. 9
      Squares can then be stored in a Tupperware container for around 2 weeks.
    10. 10
      For other flavours add one cup of any of the following: raisins, glacier cherries, cashews, dried cranberries.
    11. 11
      You can also add 1 cup of crunchy peanut butter after you've cooked the marshmallow for 3 minutes, and then continue as normal. These tend to come out very crumbly though still nice.

      These are great! I used dried cherries because that's what I had the most of. The kids LOVE these! (So do I, lol) They seem more 'grown up' & I was wondering what they'd be like with minced crystallized ginger....? Thanks for posting!
