Rice Cereal Marshmallow Treats

This is how I make them:

2 bags of Dandies Marshmallows
1 box of puffed rice cereal
1 stick of Earth Balance
1-2 tb of Nielsen-Massey vanilla bean paste
Cooking spray

Spray your container/Disney with cooking spray. Melt the Earth Balance buttery stick in a soup pot over a medium flame.  When just melted, add the vanilla and stir.  Now the marshmallows!!! And stir, stir, stir!!  When they are as melted as possible, without being burned, add the cereal, turn off the flame, and fold the heck out of it to make sure all the rice is covered in mallow goodness. Scoop into your container(s) and pat until even.  Chill, cut, and serve.

Cocoa PB Puff Cereal Treats

Ooey-gooey deliciousness!!

3/4-1 stick of Earth Balance
1 box of Whole Foods cocoa peanut butter puffs cereal
2 bags of Dandies marshmallows (the minis melt faster)
1/4 C Sunspire chocolate chips
2-4 heaping tb of PB & Co Smooth Operator (or chunky would work well too)

Spray a casserole dish with cooking spray and pour cereal out into a gigantic bowl, sprinkling chocolate chips on top. Melt margarine in a sauce pot, then add mallows, stirring constantly. When the mallow margarine mix is melted, pour over the cereal/chocolate chip mix. Quickly melt the PB in the same pot, stirring constantly, then pour over the mallow mix.  Fold everything together until the fragrance of PB and chocolate make you nutty. Put the mix into the casserole dish and pat it down. Chill until set, turn out onto a cutting board, and slice into bars. You can put it back into your casserole dish, arrange the bars on a platter, or wrap each bar in parchment.  Warning:  your hands will get chocolatey and your mouth will be happy.
