Rice Krispies Treats

I think my husband grew up on these.  His mom continued to make them for my kids.  Always a hit.  You can kick them up by adding chocolate chips or
warming the chocolate and drizzling it over the top. 
 Kellogg’s® prints the recipe for Rice Krispies Treats® on every box of Kellogg’s Rice Krispies®. The basic recipe for Rice Krispies Treats® has changed very little over the years. Oh, some of us now prefer to use butter, in place of margarine, and we may tinker a little with the ingredients, but its original flavor and texture are still there.  Some prefer to use miniature marshmallows, large ones are fine, or you can even use a 7 ounce jar of marshmallow creme. But it is important to use fresh marshmallows as they melt so nicely, and make sure to butter or spray, with a non stick vegetable spray, the baking pan, the saucepan, the bowl, and all utensils, as this mixture is very sticky. These treats are definitely at their best when freshly made, although they can be stored for a few days at room temperature.

Rice Krispies Treats®: Butter, or spray with a non stick vegetable spray, a 9 inch (23 cm) square baking pan.

Place the Rice Krispies® in a large bowl that has been buttered.

Butter, or spray with a non stick vegetable spray, a heavy medium sized saucepan. Melt the butter and salt in the saucepan over medium low heat. Add the marshmallows and constantly stir until the marshmallows have completely melted. Add the vanilla extract and then pour the mixture over the Rice Krispies® cereal and stir until all the cereal has been coated.

Immediately pour the mixture into your prepared pan and lightly pat until even. Cool at room temperature until the Rice Krispies Treats® have set. Cut into squares. Can store at room temperature for a few days if well wrapped

Makes about 16 squares.
