Cream Sherry, Moscato d'Asti, and Port are my top picks for Rice Crispy Treats. A common wine pairing rule is to make sure your wine is sweeter than your food. Delicate desserts go well with Moscato d'Asti, nutty desserts with cream sherry, and caramel or chocolate desserts pair well with port. One wine you could try is NV Johnson Estate Cream Sherry. It has 5 out of 5 stars and a bottle costs about 19 dollars.

NV Johnson Estate Cream Sherry

Very aromatic with notes of hazelnut, vanilla, and a touch of oak followed by sweet raisins and a touch of yeast. Clean lasting finish. Good now but will reward those allow it to age"". A favorite pre-prandial beverage. Consider it with nuts before dinner as an aperitif, or after dinner with dessert, especially chocolates and fruit-based desserts. Also wonderful on cold afternoons, served with biscotti to dip in ""Italian-style"". "

Instructions

Prepare a 9 x 13 pan with cooking spray. Measure the cereal into a large mixing bowl and set aside. Melt the marshmallows and butter together in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Pour the melted marshmallow mixture over the cereal and stirring well to evenly coat the cereal. Pour into the prepared pan and use a small buttered piece of waxed paper, plastic wrap, small zip lock bag, or the back of a spoon sprayed with cooking spray to press evenly into pan. In a small sauce pan melt the peanut butter over medium heat until thin. Pour over the quartered peanut butter cups, stirring gently to combine. Then pour over the treats. Use the back of a spoon to gently spread the peanut butter mixture evenly across the top of the krispies. Melt the chopped chocolate (either in the microwave or over the stove) stirring frequently. Drizzle the melted chocolate across the top of the peanut butter mixture and place the pan in the refrigerator to set before cutting and serving. Store in an airtight container. Alternatively: Make stir cereal and marshmallow mixture as directed above and press into pan. Melt peanut butter and chocolate together, stirring frequently until melted. Pour over the Krispies, spreading to cover. Place in refrigerator to set, then drizzle with more melted chocolate.

Tips

Health Tips

  • To make baked goods lighter and sneak in some extra nutrition, you can swap half the butter or oil (sometimes even all of it!) with an equal amount of unsweetened applesauce.

  • Believe it or not, some sources say you can substitute avocado puree for butter when making brownies. Try it and let us know how it turns out!

  • If you can, choose grassfed butter for a better nutritional profile—more vitamins, a favorable omega 3/6 ratio, etc.

  • Gluten-free rice crispy cereals are available. If you are following a gluten-free diet, be sure to buy the right box!

Price Tips

  • Most dairy products stay good well past their sell-by date. Instead of throwing out perfectly safe food that is just a few days or maybe even a week or two old, make sure the product smells fine, has a normal texture, and doesn't taste funny. Sniff testing isn't exactly rocket science and it can keep you from wasting food (and money).

Cooking Tips

  • Butter's incredible flavor has made it an extremely popular cooking fat, but it is important to know that butter has the lowest smoke point of almost any cooking fat. This means butter literally starts to smoke at a lower temperature than most other fats between 250-350 degrees Fahrenheit. So while butter is great for cooking at lower temperatures, you should probably use canola oil, coconut oil, or another oil with a higher smoke point for frying and other high temperature cooking.
