Smarties Rice Krispy Squares

Whenever I'm feeling under the weather, I love to get in
 the kitchen and cook up childhood favourites. And do I
 have a treat for you: Smarties Rice Krispy Squares!!!

If you live in the United States, you don't call these candies Smarties, as they refer 
to the powdered versions we call, "Rockets". But humour me for now. I also used a 
mix of regular white Rice Krispies with the new Gluten-Free Brown Rice Krispies...

Start off melting 1/4 cup vegan margarine (or butter) over 
medium heat, stirring in 40 regular puffed marshmallows

Keep stirring until the marshmallows melt :)

Then fold in 6 cups Rice Krispies Cereal, turning the stove off

Now to add in the chocolate candy treats!

Gently blend in the Smarties with the Rice Krispy 
mixture, a couple folds with a spatula is all you need

Ta-da! Now to transfer to a baking dish lightly
coated with PAM or any other non-stick oil spray

The best way to flatten the Rice Krispy Squares is by using parchment paper
or wax paper over top, pressing and smoothing out the edges with your hands

Try to even out the surface as best you can

Then before they dry and set up, score the squares, gently cutting into them

Makes about 20-25 squares, depending on 
how big you cut them and how large your dish is

Serve warm or best, cooled, with a cup of tea or coffee

Question: What are your favourite childhood treat(s)?
