A childhood favourite, Rice Krispie squares are easy and quick. All you need are marshmallows, margarine and Rice Krispies. To add a twist to this recipe, I decided to add a bit of whimsy and create dirt blocks from the popular video game Minecraft.
To create the squares start by melting 1/4 cup margarine on low heat in a pot. You can use butter instead of margarine. To the melted margarine, add a teaspoon of cocoa powder. This will create the brown colour you need for the dirt.
When the margarine has melted, add 4 cups of mini marshmallows. You want the small ones because the larger size takes too long to melt. Make sure to turn the heat down to low so that you don’t burn the marshmallows. You want them to just melt. Keep stirring the mixture until everything is uniform.
(Hint* You may want to prepare this part prior to melting the marshmallows). In a separate bowl, mix 5 cups of Rice Krispies with 2/3 cup of chocolate chips. The chocolate chips will create a nice variance in colour for your dirt block.
Add the Rice Krispies to the melted marshmallows and stir making sure to incorporate all the ingredients. The chocolate chips will melt but thats ok.
Pour the mixture into a pan lined with wax paper. To make life simpler, use a ziplock bag as a glove. This will prevent the Rice Krispies sticking to your hand. Form the Rice Krispies into a rectangular block making sure the edges are nice and square.
Let the Rice Krispies rest and cool. After an hour, they will be cool enough to cut into squares. Be as precise as possible so it looks like Minecraft dirt blocks. Serve right away!! They are sure to be a hit at any geeky party. Enjoy!
