Valentine's Rice Krispie Teats

There is nothing particularly 'Valentines-y' about rice krispie treats.  But I was at the grocery store and saw those boxes of pre-made rice krispie treats and really, really wanted some.  Instead, I grabbed a box of rice krispies and a bag of pink, strawberry flavored, heart shaped marshmallows and put them in my buggy...err, I mean, grocery cart.  I can't believe I've converted to calling them buggies... Anyway, I went home an made my pink rice krispie treats later that night.  And they were delicious. 

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.

Amy's Notes:
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.
