Rice Crispies Treats


I know, I know, it’s on the box of the Rice Krispies cereal. But who knew it was so easy?

6 cups of rice crispies
3 tbs of butter or margarine (I think it works fine with less…)
4 cups of marshmallows (approx. 10 oz.)
* I used marshmallow creme, and only used one can which was 7 oz.


1. In a medium sauce pan, melt the butter.
2. Add the marshmallows and mix until melted.

7. Let cool.
8. Cut into square pieces.
