I was feeling somewhat nostalgic this weekend (while craving something sweet), so I decided to make some Rice Krispies Treats. I haven't had them in years, but they brought back many pleasant memories, mostly of my mom, my sister, and me making them on Friday nights while watching tv. Isn't it amazing how certain smells and foods can bring back memories so strongly? Anyway, while the recipe certainly isn't new, it's a classic. Make some with your kids/grandkids/spouse/significant other, and enjoy.
Kellogg's Rice Krispies Treats (Original)
3 Tbsp. butter (or margarine)
10 oz. (about 40) regular marshmallows OR 4 cups miniature marshmallows (or 7 oz. marshmallow creme or fluff)
6 cups Rice Krispies
Melt margarine in large saucepan over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat. Add KELLOGG'S RICE KRISPIES cereal. Stir until well coated.
Using buttered spatula or waxed paper, press mixture evenly into 13 x 9 x 2-inch pan coated with cooking spray. Cut into 2-inch squares when cool. Best if served the same day.
