Dairy-Free Rice Krispies Treats

While this recipe might seem really obvious, I will admit when I began to learn about dairy-free food that I had no idea what to do.  I really like Rice Krispies Treats, and I am pretty picky about the flavor.  So changing to dairy-free margarine didn't seem like an easy option.  Then I read on a message board the Blue Bonnet Light was dairy-free.  Really... my margarine of choice for these treats is (dairy-based) Blue Bonnet.  It was worth a try.  I can't justify making two different batches of Rice Krispies just to appease my taste.  The verdict:  PERFECT.

Here's what we did today for Valentine's Day.

  • 6 cups Rice Krispies (I always end up adding more so it's not too gooey)
  • 3 Tbsp Blue Bonnet Light (or another dairy-free margarine)
  • 10 oz marshmallows

1. Heat butter and marshmallows on low on stovetop.
2. Once marshmallows and butter are melted, mix in Rice Krispies.
3. Pour into a pan.  Spray a piece of wax paper with cooking spray (such as Pam, which is dairy-free) and press it to even out the treats in the pan.
4. Shake on sprinkles.  Use a cookie cutter to cut the treats into shapes.

  1. You may wish to try Earth Balance Buttery Spread. Completely dairy-free, very delicious, and more buttery tasting than margarine!
