Enjoy this chewy, sweet treat with a healthy twist, extra virgin olive oil in place of butter! Dress these up with special toppings such as sprinkles or frosting. Adding chocolate chips, toffee bits
or toasted nuts further makes them hard to resist.
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or lightly grease it with the delicate olive oil and set aside until later.
In a large bowl, add the puffed rice cereal and set aside while you melt the marshmallows. Add any mix-ins like sprinkles or mini chocolate chips to the bowl of cereal.
In a large saucepan, add the More Than Olives Extra Virgin Olive Oil along with the marshmallows. Stir to coat the marshmallows. Heat on low, stirring continuously until they are melted. If you overcook the marshmallows, they will get hard.
Add the melted mixture to the puffed rice cereal or other small cereal of your choice. Gently fold together. Don’t over mix as this will break down the light puffy nature of the cereal.
Turn the combined mixture onto the greased or parchment paper lined cookie sheet. Don’t be shy, using your hands with some olive rubbed on them is easiest. Gently press out the mixture to create a rectangle at the height you desire.
Give the Krispies a very light sprinkle of flake salt. If you are adding toppings, now is the time to sprinkle them on, while the mixture is a bit sticky.
Store in refrigerator until it is cooled and hardened. Once cooled, cut into individual servings with an oiled cookie cutter or sharp knife. Store them in an airtight container. Enjoy!
