Hi everyone. What fun and interesting activities did you partake in this weekend? We celebrated our friends 50th birthday this weekend at a fancy dinner in Citadel Hill. I’ve lived here my entire life and had no idea they held functions there. It was a great evening with great food, and great people.
Here’s a quick and easy treat for you courtesy of one of the PC Cooking school classes I went to. It’s a different take on Rice Krispie treats.
DARK CHOCOLATE CRISPY RICE TREATS
- 1/2 cup maple syrup
- 1/2 cup brown rice syrup
- 3/4 cup smooth almond butter
- 1/2 chopped dark chocolate (70%)
- 2 tbsp butter
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 6 cups krispy rice cereal
Grease 9 1/2 x 11 pan and line with parchment paper. Heat brown rice syrup and maple syrup to a boil. Remove from heat, add almond butter, chocolate, butter and salt. Stir till chocolate melts Pour over cereal and mix well. Pack mixture firmly into prepared pan. Chill for an hour in the fridge or about 15 minutes or so in the freezer. Lift out of the pan and cut in squares. These are best stored in the fridge.
Have a good week. Fingers crossed we’ll see some sun.
