1 (10 ounce) package
crispy rice cereal
chopped unsalted cashew nuts
I love these and I love cardamom! I used half a cup of raisins and half a cup of dried cranberries. All I had in the house were walnuts so I used those instead of cashews. This is an amazing recipe. It's one I'm sure I'll be using for years to come!
it was not to my liking< it was cooked ok
A crispy rice treat for grown-ups! The spice is very subtle and tasty. I substituted almonds for the cashews and they worked just as well. I also sprinkled just a bit of salt over the top as the bars were setting for a sweet/salt taste. Will definitely make again.
These are definitely a keeper - if you like Indian rice pudding, then you will like these. Instead of cashews, I used almonds (like one of the other reviewers) and they turned out excellent. And this is a tip that applies to all rice krispy treats - make sure that you sort of coax the krispies into the baking dish - don't press too hard, or they'll be dense and heavy instead of light and airy.
Cardamom is one of my favourite spices for baking so had to give this recipe a try. I was NOT disappointed! If you enjoy chai tea or Indian rice pudding you will enjoy this treat. I personally prefer using dried cranberries but many friends have said they prefer the golden raisins. Either way this one is a keeper. Next time I will try with dried blueberries or maybe even dried cherries. The choices are endless.
I was very hesitant to make this recipes as I would never think to combine these ingredients together, but to my surprise all my guests had seconds and thirds! Personally though, I still prefer the traditional rice krispies.
Mmmmmm! If you like Indian rice pudding, you'll love this! I really liked it! I varied it by crushing the cashews into pretty smalll crumbles and added slightly more cardamom. Give this recipe a try!
Definitely different, would have been fine with just cashews. Would make a variation of this again.
