Rice Krispie Marshmallow Treats Recipe
Almost everyone loves Rice Krispie Marshmallow Treat bars. This recipe for Rice Krispie
treats is an older recipe that makes bars which don't fall apart easily (compared to the
recipe on today's boxes).
These are always a big hit at work; they're usually gone in record time.
What to do
- Place a small lump of margarine into a paper towel and use to grease a 13 x 9 x 2 inch
pan, then wipe the pan off with a dry paper towel. This will keep the bars from sticking
to the pan when they are placed on it.
- Measure margarine into 3-quart saucepan; melt over low heat. Add marshmallows and
cook, stirring constantly, until marshmallows are melted and mixture is very syrupy.
Remove from heat.
- Add Rice Krispies cereal; stir until well-coated.
- Spread warm mixture in the greased 13 x 9 x 2 inch pan. Using waxed paper or buttered
spatula press firmly into an even layer. (I normally use a butter knife to do this; dipping
the knife into a glass of water occasionally will keep the Rice Krispies from sticking to it
as you shove them into the pan)
- Cut into squares when cool. (This is normally about 10 minutes after placing the mixture
into the pan.)
- Flavored marshmallows (usually the ones that are green, orange, etc.) may be used to change
the taste of your Treats just enough that it will be noticeable.
- For Christmas, consider using the red and green colored Rice Krispies that normally are sold
around Christmastime, to give your bars that festive holiday appearance. :-)
