This recipe is for my friend Tonianne who said that the recipes on my food blog were too intimidating; I know you can make this one Tonianne! Seems like anytime I want to make Rice Krispie treats, I have to go online to www.ricekrispies.com to find the recipe so I can get the ingredients in the right amount so I decided to put it on my blog so that I can find it easily. Bob and I both teach Sunday School to the teenagers at church every Sunday so if I make treats for my class, I have to make treats for his too. These were all I had time for yesterday.
3 tablespoons butter
1 (10 oz) package regular size marshmallows (about 40) or 4 cups mini marshmallows (can also use 1 7 oz jar of marshmallow creme instead of marshmallows)
6 cups Rice Krispies or Cocoa Krispies (I used Cocoa this time)
1 In large saucepan, melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat. (You can also melt butter and marshmallows in microwave on high for 3 minutes, stirring after 2.)
2 Add cereal and stir until well coated.
3 Using buttered spatula or wax paper (I just spray my hands with Pam and use them) evenly press mixture into 13 x 9 x 2″ pan coated with cooking spray. Cool and cut into squares. Did you know that you can freeze them for up to 6 weeks? Me neither.
