Rice Crispy Treats

I know that everyone has had these but they don’t put the recipe on the box anymore. So here is the basics and then I made some delicious variations.

3 tbl butter
4 cups of mini-marshmallows or 1 package of big marshmallows
6 cups Rice Crispy cereal or derivative

Butter (or butter flavored no-stick spray) a 7 X 11 1/2 for nice thick squares. Melt the butter in a heavy pan and then melt marshmallows. As soon as they are almost smooth stop, otherwise you will have softness issues. Then dump in cereal and stir, stir, stir until fully mixed. Then dump into the dish. Take a sandwich bag and turn it inside out and spray lightly with no-stick spray. Then use it to push down the mixture. Let cool and eat!

Now the specials I added. I found chocolate marshmallows on Valentine’s clearance at Target (I didn’t know they existed) and used 1/2 plain cereal and 1/2 chocolate (it came in the box that way). Then I took icing in a can (also clearance) and was playing with the tips, thus the different patterns.
