This year, I subscribed to Food & Wine magazine in an effort to feel more like an adult. So far, I’ve just flipped through the temptation-filled pages and drooled over various recipes. In a recent issue, however, I stumbled upon this recipe for “grown-up” Dulce de Leche Crisped Rice Treats. Knowing Quinn’s penchant for original Rice Krispies treats, I thought this would be an interesting experiment.
These crisped rice treats are very easy to make and have quite an interesting taste. I did think that the ratio of cereal to nuts was a little lopsided in favor of the nuts. If I were to make these again, I think I would adjust the amounts.
I would recommend serving these not as a primary dessert, but along with a variety of sweets. They have quite a unique nutty caramel taste. Certainly not your childhood Rice Krispies treats. These crispy rice treats do live up to their description and are definitely a treat for adults.
