I've been cleaning out my cupboards trying to use up some of the extra baking supplies that have accumulated over the last few months. I came across a bag of mini marshmallows and I knew that there was half of a large box of Rice Krispies left over from my kids. Since I needed to make something for their school lunches anyway, Rice Krispies treats seemed to be the perfect answer.
It's been quite a while since we've eaten these treats. My daughter was so excited that I was going to make them for her. She's lost two teeth this weekend for a total of 3 missing now. Finding things that she can (and will) eat has been a bit tricky. lol!
I went to the Kellogg's website and followed the directions for the original Rice Krispies Treats. Nothing could be any simpler. :)
3 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 package (10 oz., about 40) regular marshmallows
- OR -
4 cups miniature marshmallows
6 cups Rice Krispies
1. In large saucepan melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat.
2. Add Kellogg's Rice Krispies cereal. Stir until well coated.
3. Using buttered spatula or wax paper evenly press mixture into 13 x 9 x 2-inch pan coated with cooking spray. Cool. Cut into 2-inch squares. Best if served the same day.
Store no more than two days at room temperature in airtight container. To freeze, place in layers separated by wax paper in airtight container. Freeze for up to 6 weeks. Let stand at room temperature for 15 minutes before serving.
