Rice Krispies Bars recipe – 181 calories

Rice Krispies bars recipe

A wonderful tasting bar… the great combination of flavors make this a really exciting and decadent version of the old rice crispy bar!

You can substitute the Grand Marnier with a little vanilla or orange extract. If you’re a big fan of white chocolate, you can skip the drizzling at the end and just dunk the bars into the white chocolate.

Rice Krispies Bars recipe – 181 calories

4-4 1/2 cups Rice Krispies
2 1/2 cups miniature marshmallows
1/2 cup dried apricots, diced
1/3 cup sliced almonds, toasted
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
cooking spray
1/4 cup light brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 cup white chocolate chips
2 teaspoons Grand Marnier
1-3 teaspoon canola oil

1. Coat a 9×9 inch pan with cooking spray and set aside. Also apply a little spray to your cooking spoon.
2. To make the bars, begin by adding together the brown sugar and butter in a large saucepan over medium-low heat. Stir for about 2 minutes, until the butter and sugar are melted.
3. Add in the 1/4 teaspoon of ground cinnamon and stir.
4. Add the miniature marshmallows and stir continuously, helping the puffs to melt. Continue mixing until you have a pale brown mixture that is still rather loose.
5. Once the marshmallows are fully melted and mixed with the sugar, add in the Rice Krispies, dried apricots and toasted almonds.
6. Stir quickly to get all of the ingredients incorporated.
7. Turn the mixture out into the 9×9 inch pan, distributing as much as possible using your spoon.
8. Place the bars in the refrigerator and leave them to set for about 30 minutes.
9. Invert the pan, giving it a good whack to release the bars.
10. Slice into 12 pieces.
11. To prepare the topping, melt the white chocolate chips in a double boiler over very low heat.
12. Add the canola oil to the chocolate and stir while the the chips continue to melt.
13. Stir the Grand Marnier into the melted chocolate and use a spoon to stripe the bars on the diagonal, allowing the melted chocolate to drip down the side.
14. Place the bars on waxed paper to cool.

    Der Autor über sein Buch
    FMIYours Continues to be One of My Most Popular Books.
    In 1974 FEED ME I’M YOURS first edition was published. It was initially just a fund raising cookbook for our local prepared childrenbirth education class. It changed my life forever turning me into an author and a publisher. It was my first and I thought my last book. But I was wrong. Todate I have about 30 books in print. I meet many people who tell me they raised their child by my book. (That always makes me very nervous.) I am most proud that this book has stood the test of time. It’s also more than a cookbook. It seems to be a supportive ‘friend’ to new moms. I was a new mom with 2 small children when this was written and I think it reflects that. And remember to enjoy your little ones. They really do grown up fast!.-VL
