Recipe: Rice Krispy Mendiants

Rice Krispies Treats meets chocolate "mendiants" in this fun, crunchy, shelf-stable recipe created by Chef Andrés Lara. By combining one of America's favorite cereals with the traditional French bite-sized chocolate coins (traditionally topped with nuts), the recipe achieves a phenomenal contrast between the delicate airiness of caramelized puffed rice grains and the richness of hazelnut praliné and milk chocolate. Combined, these simple ingredients create a rustic, well-rounded, and fun confection that can serve as inspiration for many other creations, such as "arroz con leche ice cream" and much more!
