Rice Krispie Treats
3 tablespoons butter
1 10 ounce package marshmallows
6 cups rice krispie cereal
In microwave-safe bowl heat butter and marshmallows for intervals of 1 minute, stirring after each interval until melted and smooth.Add rice krispie cereal. Stir until well coated.
Using buttered spatula or wax paper evenly press mixture into 9 x 13 pan coated with cooking spray. Cool and devour.
I always use microwave directions when making rice krispie treats--it is much easier and faster! I used strawberry flavored marshmallows and so the rice krispies were festive and pink for Valentine's day. And the strawberry flavored marshmallows were good for something different! I also usually use more marshmallows than the recipe calls for--just about one cup or so more so they are a little easier to mix together.
