Puffed Rice Bars

Submitted by: PURPLEZEBRA

Introduction

Makes 24 Makes 24
Number of Servings: 24

Ingredients

    Puffed Rice cereal, 6 cup
    Canola Oil, 3 tbsp
    Honey, 1 tbsp
    4 cup of miniature marshmallows
    Dry Roasted Cashews, 1/4 cup
    Sweetened Dried Cranberries, 1/3 cup (30g)
    Golden Raisins, 1/3 cup (not packed)
    6 dates

Directions

Lightly coat the inside of a 13 by 9 by 2-inch metal pan with oil and set aside. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.

Spread the puffed rice evenly on a sheet pan. Toast in the oven for 4 to 6 minutes, stirring occasionally. While the rice is toasting, prepare the marshmallow mixture.

Place the oil, honey, and marshmallows in a saucepan over low heat. Stir until the marshmallows are melted, approximately 4 to 5 minutes. Once the marshmallows are melted, quickly add the toasted rice, cashews, and fruit and stir to combine. Coat your hands or a spatula with oil and spread the mixture evenly into the pan. Once the mixture has cooled completely, cut into squares and store in a airtight container. I use a ruler to help make bars of equal size.

  • I only put in the cashews and cranberries because I didn't like the other stuff. It was still very good. - 10/1/07

  • Oh YEAH!!! These are great. Flavorful and perfect for that mid-day snack attack. The bad thing about it is that they are so good- I want snack time all the time!! - 3/29/07
