    The Original Rice Krispies recipe calls for:
    3 tablespoons butter or margarine (1/4 cup),
    1 package (10 oz., about 40) regular marshmallows OR 4 cups mini marshmallows,
    6 cups cereal.
    I'd imagine you'd use the same measurements for the Kashi recipe, and "light butter" = margarine - 4/2/09

    Reply from KRICKETGIRL (5/11/09)
    light butter is not margarine - light butter is butter whipped with canola oil, which reduces the unhealthy saturated fat to some extent. Margarine generally has the worst trans fats and I avoid it.

    AWESOME. Loved these! Used Smart Balance butter. Almost burned the marmallow mixture so make sure you keep stirring and pay attention if you use large marshmallows (I found the smaller ones melt easier). Thanks for the recipe! Have made three times already. Husb loves 'em and they are easy to make! - 5/18/09

    These were so yummy! More flavor than rice crispys! I crushed the cereal before I added it so the chunks weren't so big. Big hit at work! LOVED IT!!!! - 8/6/08

    I love this recipe, so does my boyfriend. I pack one with our lunches for a quick bite in the afternoon -- no more temptation from vending machines! Easy to make. It helps if you crush the cereal slightly -- the longer cereal pieces are hard to mix with the marshmallows. - 8/7/07

    When I first tasted this I thought it's good but can't replace rice krispies treats. BUT the longer it sits in your mouth, the better it tastes. I really liked this recipe and will make it again. - 10/25/10

  • Great recipe though I added dried fruit, seeds, dark chocolate morsels, almonds and walnuts to mine. It was very very filling, I wasn't hungry for hours unlike the regular ones or a breakfast bar and it satisfied my sweet tooth as well! - 2/27/12

  • 18 is a lot of servings for a one/two person household. I reduced it by 6: 1 cup kashi, 2 tsp lt butter and 7 marshmallows. Made three VERY tasty servings, though I think next time I'll crush the kashi a little more before mixing it in. THANK YOU for a healthy twist on an old favorite. - 6/22/11

  • I use Earth Balance spread instead of butter. (grudgingly, only due to my recent lactose intolerance). It is trans fat free, no hydrogenated oils, or gluten. Completely vegan, if you need that. (You can get vegan marshmallows, too!) - 4/19/10

    Sounds great! I got tired of eating Kashi so switched to oatmeal but that left me with 1/2 bag of Kashi. This is a good way to use leftovers before they get stale. I use Smart Balance for the butter & while sometimes hard to find it's worth using it and their mayo. - 5/15/09

    Could you please tell me what "light butter" is? I've never heard of it and never seen it. Could I use Smart Balance Light instead?

    I'm anxious to try this, but have no idea how to find "light butter". ALSO, what size is a bag of marshmallows? - 2/5/09
