Pistachios, when eaten with high-carbohydrate foods, may result in lower than expected blood sugar levels, an important factor in reducing risk of diabetes.
1/4 cup Butter or margarine
1 package Miniature marshmallows
6 cups Crispy rice cereal
3/4 cup Coarsely chopped, natural American pistachios
Melt butter in large pan over low heat. Add marshmallows and cook, stirring until completely melted. Remove from heat. Add rice cereal and pistachios and stir until well coated. Use buttered spatula or fingertips to press mix into a 13 x 9 x 2-inch buttered pan. Cut into squares when cool.
