For my girlfriend Morgan’s birthday, I decided to whip up some Green Tea Rice Krispy Treats! I shaped most of them like little onigiri (come on, rice AND green tea!?) and shaped one big ivy, since she is a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated!
The recipe is super simple and when you read this, you’re going to say DUH! But seriously, for a healthier option of rice krispy treats, go for green tea.
Green Tea Rice Krispy Treats
3 tablespoons of butter
4 cups of Rice Krispy cereal
1 bag of marshmallow
3 teaspoons of matcha powder
In a non-stick pan, melt the butter in low heat. Add the marshmallow, stirring rigorously to avoid browning. Slowly add the Rice Krispy cereal and make sure it is coated with the marshmallow. Soon you will start to see a beautiful green color.
I threw everything on a wax paper and let it cool for 5 minutes. That way it was still warm enough to shape. When I was done, I bedazzled it with pink sprinkles. Safe to say, Morgan loved them!
Stay cool, kids!
