Ube Rice Krispie treats

You'll need a puffed rice cereal, marshmallows, butter, ube extract, and ube halaya. That's it. The recipe itself has been printed on the back of a box since 1940.

cook Time: 10 mins


– ½ cup unsalted butter – 10 oz marshmallows – 6 cups rice krispies – ~1 teaspoon ube extract – 1 cup ube halaya


For the first batch - melt the butter in a pot on low heat, and then add in 1 batch of the marshmallows. Once fully melted, add in 3-4 drops of the ube extract and stir until the mixture is a pastel purple. Pour in 2 cups of the rice krispies and mix together. Dump out the mixture into the baking dish and press firmly to create a flat layer.


For the second and third batch - repeat as step 2, adding a few more drops of ube extract for each batch (i.e. second batch has 6 drops of ube extract, third batch has 10 drops of ube extract).


Allow the rice krispie treats to fully cool and set. Spread the ube halaya on the top and cut into 8 pieces.
