K and I are big snackers. Always have been, and always will be. If I had my way, I’d snack on chocolate all day, but for some strange reason, I’ve been told “that’s not healthy, Sharon.” Whatever. So when I get a craving during the day and I’m just not feeling the healthier option of fruit, vegetables, or some hummus, I go for these homemade rice krispies treats. They’re fun, sweet, and the perfect little mid-day snack.
Oh! And did I mention these are so easy to make?! Just 3 ingredients (rice krispies cereal, butter, and marshmallows) and no baking necessary! I personally always have rice krispies cereal in the house, and butter, well yeah, there’s always butter here. So that just leaves marshmallows, which as you’ve seen by my other post, is now a staple in this household!
Rice Krispies Treats
(Makes one 9×13″ pan, or about 12 “treats”)
3 tbsp butter
6 cups rice krispies cereal
4 cups mini marshmallows
Coat a 9×13″ pan with butter or cooking spray. Set aside.
In a medium saucepan over low heat, melt the butter. Once the butter has melted, add the marshmallows and allow to fully melt. Remove from the heat and add the cereal. Stir well and pour into the prepared pan. Spread the mixture evenly across the entire pan, and allow to let cool for a couple hours. Cut into small squares and serve immediately.
