Sour Cherry Rice Crispy Treats – Toy Story 3

The dish:

Sour Cherry Rice Crispy Treats

The reason: Sometimes it’s really hard leave the things you loved from childhood behind. It might be Woody, Buzz, Mr Potato Head, or it might be a certain saccharine square that goes snap, crackle and pop. Just like this third tale of Andy’s toys and their travails, these crunchy cubes are held together by a gooey marshmallow warmth. And the sour cherries? They’ve tagged along for the ride to remind us just how bitter sweet growing old is.

The way:


Serves 6 -8 as petit fours or as part of a dessert platter
1 and a half tablespoons of butter
20 regular marshmallows
3 cups Rice Krispies
½ cup of dried sour cherries or cranberries

1. Put the marshmallows and the butter in a saucepan over a low heat. Stirring the mixture they’ve completely both melted. Remove from heat.


2. Add Rice Krispies and dried sour cherries. Stir until everything is well coated.


3. Press mixture into a rectangular baking pan lined with aluminum foil. Cool in the fridge.


4. When the mixture is solid, cut into squares.

Other options:
Would it be wrong to eat Mr and Mrs Potato head? Are there other childhood foods that are hard to let go of?
