How to make weed Rice Crispy Treats
Step 1: Prep the pan
Spray your pan and the stirring utensil with cooking spray before you start cooking: Melted marshmallows are sticky. Spraying your tools and pans makes for easy cleanup. Melting the butter first helps coat the pan and prevents the marshmallows from sticking.
Step 2: Melt the cannabis butter
Over medium-low heat, melt the butter in a large pot. Then, add the marshmallows, and stir well to coat them entirely. Continue stirring until all of the marshmallows have melted. Remove from heat and add the vanilla if using.
Step 3: Add in crispy rice cereal
Add your cereal to the melted marshmallow/butter mixture, stirring well to ensure even coverage. Scrape the mixture into a prepared pan. Flatten with the spatula or lightly coat your hand with non-stick spray and gently press the treats flat.
Step 4: Let them sit
Set the pan aside to fully cool. As it cools the squares firm up a bit making it easier to cut.
The best way to keep your crispy rice squares fresh is to cut them into individual servings and wrap them with plastic wrap, or reuseable beeswax paper. Store them in a cupboard or pantry.
