Do you remember the Rice Crispies commercial where the woman covers her face with flour and water from the fishbowl to make it look like she has spent hours baking? That was a classic. I love that. I don’t think I ever tire of it and the message it so true. Rice Crispies Treats are so easy to make. This is one recipe I cannot overlook for the holidays.
How to make Rice Crispy Treats
All you need is a few ingredients:
- 4 cups of puffed rice cereal
- 1 stick of butter
- 1 bag of marshmallows
- 2 cups of extra yummyness: M&Ms, chocolate chips, nuts, or any other filler you might like in your bars
Grease a large cookie sheet or baking pan and set aside. Put the marshmallows and butter in a non-stick pan and melt over medium-high heat while constantly stirring. After it is completely melted pour the cereal in a little at a time. Stirring the cereal in over the stove keeps the butter/marshmallow concoction from hardening too soon. After the cereal is mixed well with the marshmallows and butter turn off the heat. Now add the extra yummyness. Stir well. Pour into the greased pan and use a greased spreader to spread it out flat into the pan. Put it into the fridge for about an hour. Remove the pan and flip the whole thing onto a cutting board. Cut into squares and serve. Yum, right?
