Before creating my emotionally divisive Mochi Treat recipe, I had never made rice krispie treats at home. Yes, I had made gigantic batches of them every week at Wilde Roast while helping out in the kitchen but never at home.
Here's the thing: I love them. I love marshmallows. I love homemade marshmallows, I love jet-puffed marshmallows. I love mini ones and jumbo ones. I especially love flaming marshmallows over the fire. I am also supported by my wonderful husband who may or may not also have an unhealthy obsession with marshmallows. I truly believe that if he could have it his way, he would eat an entire tub of marshmallow creme at every meal.
And you know what? These are one of the easiest things to make...only second to that dessert of cookie dough you may have eaten out of the refrigerator the other night...
Sesame Rice Krispie Treats
Make the rice krispie treats: Prepare a 9x13 (or square) pan with parchment paper. Melt the marshmallows and butter over medium heat in a heavy bottomed saucepan. Once the marshmallows are 90% melted, remove from heat and gradually mix in the rice krispies, seeds, and sesame oil. Once fully mixed, press evenly into the prepared pan.
6 cups rice krispies
6 tbsp unsalted butter
10 oz mini marshmallows
1/3 cup black sesame seeds
1/3 cup tan sesame seeds
1 tsp sesame oil
