    • The recipe does not use real marshmallows. The Walden Farms line of products (including the marshmallow dip) are calorie, fat and sugar free. Rice crispies, while they are a high carb food, are possible in limited quantities depending on ratio and carb allowances. Some recipes like this are considered a “treat” and factored into an entire days worth of meal plans.

    • it should be ok. since it is hardened in the freezer, the butter will harden like regular butter. i wouldn’t leave it out in room temperature for too long if you have more butter since butter will soften.

    • that’s a great idea. it’s always fun to experiment with different shapes. for halloween, i made them into ghost shape and also added orange color to make pumpkin shape. kids appreciate any fun snacks. =)
