Guava Rice Krispie Treats with Maria Cookies

Deliciously sweet treats made with crispy rice cereal, guava marmalade marshmallow cream, cubes of guava paste and crumbled Maria cookies!

Hello old friend. It’s been a while. I’ve made TONS of things with you. No, not you. I’m talking about guava. hehehe.

When you grow up in a Cuban household, you eat guava, cream cheese, and maria cookies ALL. THE. TIME. Either cuban crackers with guava and cream cheese or Maria cookies with a slab of guava. The possibilities are endless. Case in point: I made Maria Cookie Truffles a few months ago. Crumbled Maria cookies mixed with cream cheese and guava paste. It really is the best combo, believe the hype.

Recently, I saw an episode of Unique Sweets where they featured one of Miami’s sweet bake shops. This bake shop makes rice krispie treats with guava. Whaaat. Fruity rice krispie treats! WHY HADN’T I THOUGHT OF THIS!? They mix guava marmalade with melted marshmallows then add the rice cereal, cubes of guava paste and crumbled Maria cookies. Press all that into a pan, cut, serve, and then TRY not to devour the entire pan. OH. MY. HEAVENS. Of course as soon as I saw that, I HAD to recreate it! I’ve made two batches already and, in case you were wondering, yes it took all of the will power in the planet not to eat the entire pan.

What do they taste like? Sweet, ooey gooey chewy, tart, and tangy. A tropical explosion in your mouth. OH YEAH.

With Thanksgiving around the corner, there’s no better time to make fun desserts for the kids (and big kids like me). I don’t know about you but we always have rice krispie treats for Thanksgiving! Why not give this a spin…you may actually love this new fruity concoction. ;)
