PB Crispy Rice Treats
I melted peanut butter, Earth Balance, and Dandies Vegan Marshmallows and then added some crisp brown rice cereal to coat and set the mixture in a pan to set. Once the treats firmed up I sliced them up and gave each one a little dip in a semi-sweet ganache bath (chocolate chips, soy milk) and topped them with a few roasted salted peanuts.
Dandies, (the candies with the happy bow-tied marshmallow on the bag) are great for this kind of dessert or any other classic puffy sugar application-- you know, your s'mores, your hot cocoas, etc etc. I like the Sweet & Sara marshmallows too (They come in fancy flavors! And I can see their factory out the subway windows on my commute! Their logo is a bunny!) but I think they are better appreciated on their own, maybe served with some fancy chocolate and fruits.
