Rice Krispie Treats


I realize they are not hard to make but last week I asked Phyllis is she would make them, and she broke the wooden spoon because she got the recipe from the 'official' rice krispie site. Too tough to stir... so... here's my recipe this is for an 8X8 dish (but I always double it for a 9X13 dish)

1/4 c butter or margarine
4 cups marshmallows (I prefer minis)
5 cups rice cereal (rice krispies)
1 t vanilla

Melt margarine in large sauce pan over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until melted and well-blended. Cook 2 minutes longer, stirring constantly. Remove from heat.

Add cereal (and sprinkles if you're feeling crazy!). Stir until well coated.
Using buttered spatula or waxed paper, press mixture evenly and firmly in buttered 8x8 inch pan. Cut into 2 x 2 inch squares when cool.

I just made some yesterday! The problem is I end up eating 1/2 the pan while they are still warm! I usually spray my hands with Pam or the like and then pat them into the pan...

This is a nice blog! I love to cook and see some great stuff here :)

I know this was posted a few years ago, but try adding Apple Jacks or Fruit Loops to your Rice Crispies Treats--absolutely wonderful! =)
