Luckily, rice krispies cereal was on sales, but to give it an Asian twist, I added match powder (green tea powder) to the mix.
Melt 4 cups of mini marshmallows over a double boiler (or melt them by placing a pot over a boiling pot of water so you do not burn the marshmallows). Then mix in 5 cups of rice krispies until every kernel is covered with sticky, gluey goodness. 🙂 Finally, mix in 2 tablespoons of matcha powder. Transfer everything into a container and let cool for an hour before cutting. Store leftovers (if there is any) in an air-tight container.
Matcha is a finely-milled Japanese green tea powder. It is best known in traditional Japanese tea ceremony and a popular ingredients in Japanese confectionery (wagashi). Nutritionally, matcha is high in antioxidants and is said to boost metabolism. Does not that justify the consumption of this treat? 🙂
