If you’ve been following the posts on our facebook page, we’ve had a theme running this week regarding astronomy. In honor of this theme, I decided to make some treats that would fit. I developed these Tang rice krispy treats. Everyone knows Tang was developed for astronauts (I don’t know why, but that’s the truth), and I couldn’t think of another “star” worthy treat. I hope you enjoy them as much as we did!
Here’s the recipe (adapted from simply southern baking):
4 Tbsp butter
1 10 oz bag mini marshmallows (I added 5 extra regular marshmallows)
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 to 2/3 c tang, depending on your preference
6 c rice krispy cereal
Melt butter over medium-low heat. Add marshmallows and stir to coat. Continue stirring until marshmallows are almost melted. Add vanilla and tang. Stir until well-combined, and marshmallows have finished melting. You want the sugar in the tang to dissolve as the marshmallows finish melting. Add cereal and mix. Press into a greased 9 x 13 pan. Allow to cool. Drizzle 1/2 c melted white chocolate chips over the top. Use a cookie cutter (sprayed with non-stick spray) to cut into desired shapes.
One of the best parts of rice krispies treats is their adaptability. What are some of your favorite flavor combinations in a rice krispy treat?
