Ingredients
  • ½ Cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
  • 10 oz Bag of Marshmallows
  • 6-7 Cups Chocolate Crisp Rice Cereal
  • ¼ Cup Milk Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla
  • 2 teaspoons Chai Spice Mix (Recipe to follow)
  • Big Pinch of Salt
Instructions
  1. Heat a heavy bottomed pot over medium-high heat and allow the butter to melt. Once the butter has melted, continue to cook until it becomes nutty and a golden brown. Remove the pot from the heat and stir in the marshmallows. Continue stirring until the marshmallows form a smooth, melted mass in the pot. You may use additional heat if they need help melting.
  2. Sprinkle the milk powder and chai spice mix over the surface of the melted marshmallows. Add in the vanilla and a BIG PINCH of kosher salt. Stir until the flavors are evenly distributed.
  3. Pour the marshmallow mixture in a bowl with the chocolate crisp rice cereal and stir using a folding action, making sure all of the cereal pieces are covered evenly. Once thoroughly mixed, pour into a greased 9x13 inch pan and press the cereal mixture into the pan. You can do this using a spoon, spatula or a greased piece of wax paper.
  4. Allow to rest until cool. Cut into squares and ENJOY!
  5. Chai Spice Mix- In a dry skillet add 30 black peppercorns, 4 cinnamon sticks, 14 cardamom pods, 2 star anise, and 20 whole cloves. Toast over medium high heat, stirring frequently until aromatic about 2 to 3 minutes. Use a coffee grinder to pulverize to a powder. Use as directed above.
