I've only ever seen one size box of the brown rice crispies. I always make half a batch of the treats and use a 9x12 pan.. they are thinner and a jar of brown rice syrup goes further that way! We love them in a half batch!
I just wrap them in plastic wrap and keep them either in the pan or on a plate. If you don't cover them they get dry pretty quickly, but if you don't give them something to sit on they all kind of mold together. Either way they're delicious. I normally buy a bar of Endangered Species Dark Chocolate, chop it and add that instead of the chips if I need that chocolatey flavor to go with it.
I have the same question, there are several sizes here in Canada. I guessed. I also can't find brown rice syrup but I did find barley malt which the book says is a second choice to brown rice syrup. They taste pretty much like barley malt and they are quite gooey. Should I substitute barley malt for brown rice syrup 1:1 or should I used less barley malt than brown rice syrup next time? Thanks!
I use a 284 gram box of Nature's Path. We do have several sizes in Canada. Rice syrup is a little difficult to find here, but some health food stores carry it so I stock up. According to substitution website http://www.foodsubs.com/Syrups.html, you will want to use barley malt to rice syrup 3:4. Try a small batch to ensure the barley malt does not overpower the squares - maybe you will end up with a taste you like better!
