I will not take credit for inventing this recipe, or even for finding it. Our friend brought these to our apartment back in college, and we fell in love with them.
Rice krispies + curry + sunflower seeds = delicious weirdness.
You’re supposed to serve these at a champagne tasting party…but, since I don’t have champagne tasting parties, I just make them and eat them like the ravenous snack hog that I am. Even the boyfriend liked these!
I sent one with the boyfriend to share, and the recipient enjoyed it. My coworker who had one said his mouth was confused about the flavors that were going on. But everyone ate them.
Definitely worth making if you like curry and dessert.
Curry Rice Krispy Treats
3 Tbs. butter
1 Tbs. curry
10 oz bag of marshmallows
6 cups rice krispies
2 cups roasted, salted sunflower seeds
Begin melting butter in a large saucepan, then add curry. After the butter is melted, add the marshmallows and stir until melted. As soon as the mixture is melted, immediately stir in the combined cereal and sunflower seeds and mix vigorously. Then, press into a buttered baking dish. Cut, serve, and nosh immediately.
(To clean out that sticky saucepan, pour in some water, and immediately put back on the stove over medium heat. Stir it around as it starts to simmer to make sure you get all the sugar off the sides of the pot.)
