Ingredients

Instructions

  • Line a 9x9 baking pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • Sift the matcha powder into a small bowl. Set aside.
  • Add the Rice Krispie cereal to a large bowl. Set aside.
  • Melt the butter until golden brown.
  • Add the marshmallows and cook until melted.
  • Add the matcha powder from step 2 and stir until a uniform green color.
  • Pour matcha marshmallow mixture over the Rice Krispie cereal. Add the black sesame seeds. Mix until the cereal is fully coated in the marshmallows.
  • Spoon rice krispie treats into the prepared 9x9 baking dish and press down with a spatula so the rice krispie treats are distributed evenly.
  • Cool for 10 minutes before serving.

Notes

  • Pre sift the matcha powder - Matcha tends to clump easily which prevents the rice krispie treats from having an even green color. So in order to reduce clumping, I sifted the matcha into a bowl before adding it to the melted marshmallows. I did this first because I found it too stressful to sift it while melting the marshmallows.
  • Use high quality matcha - I mention this in a few of my previous matcha recipes. High quality matcha makes your food greener and gives it a more intense matcha flavor. If you think you have lower quality matcha, I would highly recommend using more than 2 tablespoons of matcha powder.
  • Melt the butter so it is golden brown for the best flavor - I take my melted butter until it's almost brown butter. Getting it to this point gives you the best flavor without burning it.
