(No Dairy!) Rice Krispie Treats

Man, every once and a while I just hanker for the dairy world (cheese!).  So I go about trying to concoct a non-dairy alternative to some favorites.  Traditional Rice Krispie Treats are loaded with butter.  So how to get all that marshmallow-y goodness without all the butter?  I’m so glad you asked.My non-dairy Rice Krispie Treats involve just a few key substitutes on the path to deliciousness.  Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 5 Cups Rice Krispies (or any other generic puffed rice cereal)
  • 4 Cups Mini Marshmallows (yes, this is less than one bag.  How else am I supposed to snack on marshmallows while making these if I don’t leave some in the bag?)
  • 2 T Canola Oil
  • 3/4 t Vanilla (Use the good stuff)
  • 1/4t Imitation Butter Extract (It’s like a dang movie theater in a bottle)

Open bag of marshmallows and begin eating them.  Prepare an 8×8 baking dish with either a bit of canola oil or just a shot of good ole Pam.

Place 4 C marshmallows and canola oil in a nonstick pan over medium heat.  While stirring, continue to eat marshmallows directly out of the bag as if your mother raised you in a cave.  When the marshmallows have nearly melted, add extracts and stir to combine.  Add Rice Krispies, remove from heat and stir.  Pour the entire blob of crunchy deliciousness into the prepared pan

 Now don’t spend hours trying to get that factory perfect square using your spatula.  Just grab a piece of waxed paper, cover the Krispies and press.  

Allow to cool while you polish off the remaining marshmallows in the bag…..you know, if you have any left.

Slice into squares, serve and enjoy!  Ahh the wonders of no dairy.
