Dulce De Leche Crispies
|Crispy rice cereal||3⁄4 Cup (12 tbs)|
|Vegetable oil||1 1⁄2 Teaspoon (Plus More For Coating)|
|Blanched sliced almonds||3 1⁄2 Ounce|
|Dulce de leche||5 Tablespoon (At Room Temperature, Plus More For Topping)|
1. Preheat the oven to 350°. In a small bowl, toss the rice with 1 teaspoon of the vegetable oil. Spread the oiled rice in an even layer on a large nonstick rimmed baking sheet. Bake until the rice is very crisp, about 10 minutes. Transfer to a plate and let cool to room temperature.
2. In a large bowl, mix the sliced almonds with the toasted rice. Using a rubber spatula, blend in the 5 tablespoons of dulce de leche and the remaining 1/2 tea spoon of oil, stirring well to coat the rice and almonds thoroughly.
3. Lightly oil 2 large nonstick rimmed baking sheets. Scoop rounded tablespoons of the rice-almond mixture onto the pan and gently flatten them into 2 1/2-inch-wide disks. Lightly sprinkle the crispies with salt. Bake until they are lightly browned, about 15 minutes.
4. Let the dulce de leche crispies cool on the baking sheets for 1 minute. Using a spatula, carefully transfer them to a platter to cool completely. Dollop each one with 1/4 teaspoon of the remaining dulce de leche and serve.
