Chai Rice Krispie Treats

Chai Rice Krispie Treats


Who doesn't love a Rice Krispie treat?  I confess . . . I miss making snacks for my boys.  I tried to always have a treat available when they came home from school.  As long as my boys had a treat at the end of their school day, I felt like I was succeeding at parenting (wink)

My personal favorite was Rice Krispie treats.  Simple, classic, sweet and crunchy.  But alas, my little boys are now grown men . . . so the classic Rice Krispie treat needs a makeover to make it a "grown up" dessert.  I'm proud to say that my youngest son professes this to be "the best ever!"

Sweet, yet with a warm spice that hits your nose just before your taste buds.  I'm a huge Chai tea fan.  I prefer it in a cold latte, but a milky, hot Chai on a Sunday night is a regular thing at my house.  I've experimented with creating my own Chai blend of six spices.  Everyone has their own personal blends.  I keep a small jar of premixed spices to add into recipes when the opportunity strikes.

A basic Chai recipe includes ginger, cinnamon, cardamom, allspice, anise, and black pepper.   The base amounts for me are:

  • 3 parts Ginger
  • 2 parts Cinnamon
  • 1 part Cardamom
  • 1 part Allspice
  • 1/2 part Anise
  • 1/2 part Black Pepper

With this formula, you can create a larger batch and have it on hand.
