Ube Rice Krispies Treats
Treat / Dessert
What is ube (pronounced oo-bae)? Ube is a delicious Filipino delicacy made of bright purple yams, typically combined with condensed milk and butter to create a party in your palette. Its stunning purple color is inviting; its subtle, sweet flavor is addicting. Nowadays, it’s hard to not come across ube in your Instagram feed, as it’s infiltrating your favorite American desserts – ice cream, donuts, pop tarts, cupcakes, cereal treats and more!
Our cousin is an amazing baker, but we’re not. So, she taught us a very easy ube recipe that is almost fool-proof. If we can do it, you can too! Today, we’re making Ube Rice Krispies treats. Yum!
5 cups of Rice Krispies
1 bag of mini marshmallows
4 tbsp of butter
1 tsp McCormick Ube Extract
Melt the butter in a saucepan on low heat.
Add the marshmallows; stirring constantly until all have melted. Then, add your secret ingredient – the Ube extract. Remove from heat.
Add the Rice Krispies into the ube marshmallow mixture
Mix until the ube marshmallow mixture has coated each cereal bits.
Transfer it in a pan, and press. Let it cool.
Cut into squares, or just dig in! Enjoy!
