everybody’s favorite rice krispie treats

does everyone have a childhood memory of these after-school snacks? well, to be honest, not me. i had never ‘baked’ or even eaten one of these until i was married and started baking snacks for crew load-outs. one of the guys asked me if i would include them in the ‘load-out buffet’ and i started making them from that day forward. they are easy with no baking required (only stovetop necessary), and they seem to go over well with school bake sales, stagehand gatherings and visits by 6 year old neighbors!

rice krispie treats
3 tablespoons butter
1 10 oz. package (about 40 large) regular marshmallows (or 4 cups of mini marshmallows)
6 cups rice krispies

1. coat a 13 x 9 x 2 with cooking spray (or butter)
2. melt the butter in a large, heavy saucepan over low heat.
3. add marshmallows and continuously stir until the marshmallows are completely melted. remove from heat.
4. stir in the rice krispies until all the krispies are well coated.
5. using buttered waxed paper, press the marshmallow krispies mixture into the pan. let cool in pan. once cool, cut into squares and serve.
6. enjoy!
yield: about 24 squares

take note: i find when pressing the mixture into the pan, you can wet your fingertips and press with wet fingertips, and it’s much easier to get it compacted in the pan! also, these treats taste best the day they’re made!
