Rice Krispy Treats...

Oh yum!! These are all wrapped up and ready to go to Elizabeth's friend's house tonight!! These remind me so much of childhood and, boy, are they still tasty after all these years!!

Rice Krispy Treats (well, my version of it, anyway)

5 T butter
16 ounces marshmallows
8 cups Rice Krispies

Prepare your 9x13 pan by rubbing 1 T butter all over the sides bottom of your pan. I do this by wrapping my hand with a papertowel and rubbing the butter around the pan with my papertoweled hand. Set aside.

Melt remaining 4 T butter on medium heat in a large pot (I use my 8 quart stock pot). When butter is melted, stir in marshmallows and keep stirring until they are completely melted. (At this point, do NOT lick the spoon because it is VERY hot.) Take the pot off the burner and stir in the Rice Krispies and make sure they are all coated in melted marshmallow mixture.

Carefully pour mixture into your buttered pan. Once it is all out of your pot and into your buttered pan, smear butter all over the palms of your hands and gently press the mixture into the pan. (The butter is the BEST thing I have found to prevent the mixture from sticking to my hands!)

Let cool and then cut into bars! Yum!!

Those are wondeful! Rice Krispy treats are so addictive and tempting.

I'll probably make some of these soon as they are my Hubby's favorite fall treat!☺

I just love Rice Krispy Treats. My DH does not like them though so I don't make them very often, that way I am not tempted to eat the whole batch by myself. :-D

Another great way to press down those sticky goodies is to simply wet your hands in water! No greasy mess. :)

Hmm, those look so good. I'm trying not to be bitter that we can't get marshmallows here, Don't know if I'm succeeding!

So simple, yet so delicious! You can't go wrong with marshmallows. :0)
I saw your note about tea time. We usually have tea or hot chocolate with our lunch or in the evening. The girls like to suggest it right when it's bedtime. Hehehe.
