I know I am weird, but I do not usually eat cereal. I do go through periods when I’ll buy a big tub of yogurt and some nutty/fruity cereal blends and have that for breakfast, but it only happens on rare occasions 🙂 I am very picky about the cereal I eat, when I do eat it, so you can imagine that the crispy rice box I purchased to make this cake was left untouched. Since one of my new year resolutions is to try to waste less food, I decided to give it another chance at being eaten by making it into rice treats.
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup agave maple syrup
- 1/4 peanut butter
- 2 cups rice cereal
- 2-3 Tbsps mini chocolate chips
This turned out pretty enjoyable. I knew peanut butter and chocolate will make me eat rice cereal 😉 They did turn out a bit crumply so I think I will use some marshmallows next time as well. I still have a lot of cereal left so I’ll probably have to make a lot more rice treats!
