3 tablespoons margarine or butter

1 package (10 oz., about 40) marshmallows

or

4 cups miniature marshmallows

Melt margarine and marshmallows in pan. Add rice cereal and stir quickly to coat.

Pour into greased 9x13 pan and pat down.

If you can't have butter or margarine, try coconut oil. It's available at health food stores.

Does coconut oil have a flavor? I'm not a big fan of coconut flavor. I would consider almond though. Either would be great twists on the flavor!

I've been using coccoa pebbles, just because they are a lot cheaper than the specialty cereals.

Different grades of the coconut oil have different tastes. If I remember right the spectrum brand brand didn't taste like coconut.

I just bought some Envirokids Koala Krisp last night and I was thining that would make yummy chocolatey "rice crispy" treats. I don't think Envirokids cereals are unreasonably priced, either.

Are all marshmallows gluten free?

Thanks!

My dd is casein free/gluten-free and I've made rice crispy treats with coconut oil. My dh doesn't like coconut either but I use coconut oil/butter all the time and he can't tell it's coconut. I usually use Spectrum, Refined coconut oil.

I've not tried this substitution with the treats, but you probably could use Spectrum Organic Shortening. (Made from palm oil, not palm kernel oil.)

If you have the large ones already, just cut them into smaller pieces. I have leftovers from camping trips that would go stale otherwise.

I've been off the forum for a fews days...sorry this has taken so long to post!

I use the homemade marshmallow recipe from Martha Stewart.

http://www.marthastewart.com/page.jhtml?ty...MSL&site=living

The mixture starts out as nothing and fluffs up to marshmallow creme. One time I didn't have corn syrup so I used vegetable glycerin and it worked fine as well.

You could use this recipe to make marshmallow chicks or hearts for the holidays. :)

You've got to try this recipe because it's so easy and fun. :lol:
