Part of the hazard of being a dietitian is that I often buy things at the store that my patients tell me they eat so I can have the nutrition facts label to use as demonstration during my counseling sessions. Unfortunatley these items are usualy not items I would buy for myself.
One of the items I tend to buy a lot of is cereal. Luckily I have learned to buy the one serving cereal bowls instead of the large boxes. This week I found myself with a tub of rice krispies sitting on my shelf. I suppose I could have just eaten them for breakfast but I'm not really a big fan of rice krispies. The only recipe I could think of off the top of my head was rice krispie treats. Have you ever made anything else with rice krispies? Lucky for me a brief internet search yielded the following absolutely delicious recipe.
- 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup margarine or butter, softened
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 cups Rice Krispies®
- 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
