Looking for a little something different? Fruity cereal and just the right amount of orange creaminess dress up a basic rice krispie bar from ordinary to extraordinary in no time at all.
From time to time I get email from people who request that I make a dessert without chocolate. It’s true!
Let’s talk about this for just a moment. I have actually MET people who simply do NOT like chocolate. I don’t get it, but hey, we all have our likes and dislikes.
So for those of you that want a sweet dessert without chocolate, this one’s for you!
Here you have – Rice Krispie Cereal, Fruity Yummy Mummy + Orange + Sprinkles = Rice Krispie Orange Delights.
These Rice Krispie Orange Delights come together in a matter of minutes.
The best part is, you can change these little delights to different things on different days. I always say use what you have.
Orange is a great flavor any time of year. To give the Rice Krispie Orange Delights a Fall spin I used Fall sprinkles and colors. Of course you can decorate these delights however you want to.
Have fun with these and try different combinations! Who knows what you might come up with?
Rice Krispie Orange Delights
3 tablespoons butter
4 cups miniature marshmallows, or 10 oz. regular marshmallows
3 cups Rice Krispies cereal
3 cups cereal Fruity Yummy Mummy Cereal, any fruity cereal will do
1/2 can Orangesicle frosting, you could substitute vanilla frosting, plus 1/2-1 teaspoon orange extract, and 1 small drop red food coloring, and 1 small drop yellow food coloring
Sprinkles, any color/shape you like
1. Spray a 13 x 9 x 2-inch pan with cooking spray; set aside. I used 2 – 7″ round pans sprayed generously with nonstick spray. In a large saucepan melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat.
2. Add Rice Krispies cereal and Fruity Yummy Mummy cereal. Stir until well coated.
3. Using buttered spatula or wax paper evenly press mixture into 13 x 9 x 2-inch pan coated with cooking spray. Cool completely before decorating. Place 1/2 the can of frosting on the microwave for about 10 seconds. You want to be able to garnish with it as desired, you don’t want it too warm. Garnish top with desired amount of frosting; add desired sprinkles, if using.
Allow to set up for 15-30 minutes. Cut into squares, or desired shape. Treats are best if served the same day.
MM Note: Any fruity cereal would work just fine in these treats! I picked up Fruity Yummy Mummy on sale at Target before Halloween. Normally I wouldn’t have it on hand. Any Fruity Pebble type of cereal works very well in this recipe, it doesn’t have to be name brand.
