Making and eating these this past weekend made me supremely happy. I remember eating Rice Krispie Treats out of ziploc bags when I was a kid and these kind of brought back some of those good memories. Last weekend, I visited the nice people at Green Street Natural Foods in Melrose, looking for some Sweet & Sara Vegan Marshmallows to make these, which I found. However, the shop owner pointed out that Suzanne’s Ricemellow Creme is better suited for making these rice krispie treats, as it melts instantly and is super-soft. I tried the ricemellow creme straight out of the container when I got home—it was rich and creamy and extremely airy and light. These turned out perfect: buttery, crispy, sweet and soft.
