Matcha Rice Krispie Treats
Yummy matcha flavored rice krispie treats!
Servings: 9 bars
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.
- 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.
