Don’t toss those expired Dandies! (As if.)

2013-08-05 - Rice Crispies With Dandies - 0001

As it turns out, at four months past their expiration date, Dandies vaguely resemble the hard little marshmallows you find in candied cereals. (Let’s not pretend that that stuff is even remotely nutritious, okay? IT’S BASICALLY CANDY.) They’re not quite as dry – there’s still a little fluffiness even four months out – but a lot closer to cereal marshmallows than fresh Dandies. They’re also hella easier to tear up. (Pro tip: twist, don’t pull!)

Marshmallowy cereal is one of the few things I miss since going vegan, so this is a discovery of epic proportions. I’ve been craving it like crazy since Cara of Fork & Beans made her own last May (also using Dandies!). Let’s face it, though: I’m way too lazy to make a bunch of adorable, miniature marshmallow shapes on my own. Semi-stale Dandies are the next best thing.

I bet you could hasten the transformation by leaving a few Dandies on the counter but, seeing as I’m all out of fresh Dandies, that’s one experiment I’ll have to save for another day.
