Hello my lovelies,
I’m back with another recipe. It seems like all I’ve been doing recently but I’m loving the domesticity. You guys know I have a culinary crush on Ree Drummond aka The Pioneer Woman, right? Well I do, and I’ve been watching her series on the telly and practically drooling over her home cooking. On the latest show I watched, Ree made these gorgeous pecan marshmallow crispy treats and I couldn’t wait to give them a go.
No really, I couldn’t even wait until I had been to Morrisons, so I made them up with what I had. Of course, I didn’t have any regular white marshmallows so the mixture came out pink and my daughter dubbed them Princess Unicorn marshmallow crispies.
Because they’re rainbow coloured and pink of course!
Ree’s basic recipe ingredients are:
4 tablespoons of butter plus extra for greasing
300g marshmallows (I used pink and yellow ones)
1/4 t of salt
6 cups of rice crispies
First grease your dish well, I used a square one and it worked out perfectly. Next add the butter to a large (I used my pressure cooker!) pot and once melted add the marshmallows. Melt on a low heat making sure to stir to prevent it catching.
Add the salt and the 6 cups of rice crispies.
Here you can add anything you have lying about to ‘flavour’ them. I added white chocolate chunks, 1/2 a bag of mini pink and white marshmallows and 1/2 a bag of smarties.
Mix it all together and dump it out into the greased dish. Working quickly, spread out in the dish to reach the sides and trying to make sure the layer is even. I found that although I worked quickly, the mashmallow mixture started to get really sticky and I was getting more clinging to the wooden spoon than in the actual bowl.
On a spark of brilliance, I wet my hands a little and pressed the mixture into the pan in a nice even layer.
Again, working quickly, I poured over a slab of melted white chocolate and rainbow sprinkles.
I refrigerated for 3 hours then cut into squares.
Mr R and dear daughter (DD) adores these!
I’m already considering some other interesting combinations…. stay tuned
