    Rice Krispie Treats

    Does anyone have the recipe for this? The back of my box no longer has it. I want to make them for Grandkids who are coming today.

    Sorry--I hit the wrong key! Anyway, the recipe is: 3 tablespoons butter/margerine, 10 oz marshmallows, and 6 cups Rice Krispies. (it says you can substitute a 7 oz jar marshmallow cream for the solid ones if you want) Melt the butter, stir in the marshmallows til smooth, add the cereal, and spread in a 9 x 13 buttered pan. Have fun with the grandkids!

    I just made some last night!

    My recipe says

    1/4 cup margarine (butter works, too)
    4 cups mini marshmallows
    5 cups Rice Krispies....

    otherwise it's the same as JamieT says

    That's how I make mine, too! lol

    I found a variation that my husband just can't get enough of - instead of butter and marshmallows, use 1 cup butterscotch morsels and 1/2 cup peanut butter. Melt both together and stir in the cereal. Yummy!

    Hmm.. good idea. Maybe I'll make some of those too. We added peanut butter the last time I made them. Yum. But I still prefer them plain. I remember years ago, my grandmother said that someday, I won't like things as sweet as I like them now. I thought, yeah,,,surrrre... Unfortunately, it became true. I can't even take chocolate any more in Rice Krispie treats.

    I bought a BIG box of Christmas Rice Krispies after the holiday. They were much cheaper and I made a batch of Rice Krispie squares. They went fast and the little red and green accents were cute.

    I'm with you there, although with me it's not so much the sweetness, it's the richness. I just feel sluggish after eating things that are rich.

    My grand kids wanted granola bars so I added a couple packages of dried strawberries to mine they loved them.

    At Christmas, the grandkids and I used food coloring to dye the marshmallow/butter mixture green, then we shaped the rice krispies mix into wreath shapes and decorated them with red hots. For Valentine's, we will make them pink and heart shaped. I wonder how it would be to color some of the marshmallow mixture yellow and use that for the center of egg shaped treats at Easter?.

    I realize this is too late for this time with the grandkids - but they are even better with frosting on the top!

    I have substituted peanut butter for the margarine and used Cocoa Krispies - AND sometimes also stirred in Reese's Puffs for a portion of the cereal. Have even frosted these with melted choc chips. Regular rice

    I found a recipe that uses 3 cups krispies and 3 cups trail mix. Really good.

    We like to change up which cereal we use. The kids favorite is fruity pebbles in place of the krispies. Apple jacks and multigrain cheerios are close runners up for favorites.
