Hey there luvs!
You know that we take any chance to get in the kitchen to create new recipes. And a few weeks ago we had one of those moments where we tried combining two recipes to create one delicious recipe. We wanted to create some sort of “healthier” rice crispy treat recipe, so this is what we came up with.
We mixed our sugar-free marshmallows with our vanilla puff cereal to create marshmallow vanilla puffs.
We basically wanted to mix our marshmallows with something to create something similar to a rice crispy treat.
And after some thought… we decided on mixing it with vanilla puff cereal would be perfect.
Friends… it came out perfect!! Such a dense treat too. It may look simple and not much to it, but it’s not. These marshmallow puffs are full of flavor and very filling.
We only used about half a marshmallow recipe. But we feel using a whole recipe would work well too.
Once your marshmallows are just about done blending stop mixing, pour over your vanilla puffs in a large bowl. Stir around to coat the vanilla puffs. Pour into a 6 inch circle pan. Or you could pour into a muffin pan for more individual style.
This recipe takes less than 20 minutes to make too. Quick and delightful kind of treat.
Easy as 1 – 2 – 3. Well almost. You do have to let it sit for a little bit before enjoying.
Marshmallow vanilla puffs are great for anyone. If you are looking for something a little different and nutritious try these out.
Promise they will not disappoint.
Now we can have two of our favorite recipes in one treat!
marshmallow vanilla puffs
A healthy alternative to rice crispy treats – homemade vanilla puff cereal mixed with sugar free marshmallows.
- Make your marshmallows. Click here for a video of how to make them
- Beat for about 8 minutes, you want it to be a little runny. Pour over vanilla puff cereal. Stir around until coated and then pour into a pan. *pour as much or as little marshmallows as you want.
- Any size pan will do, the bigger then pan will result in thinner bars. We used a 6 in circle pan. Muffin pan would work too. Lightly grease the pan or line with parchment paper so they pop out easier.
- Let sit in fridge to set. Then slice and enjoy.
- Serving Size: serves 6
That my friends can be happily enjoyed anytime of the day! Not saying that we ate it for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Twins question: What is one recipe that you could eat anytime of the day?
