Rice Krispy Treats
I usually make these once a year for the big family campout. But for the first time I made them just to make them (thanks to the many extra bags of marshmallows I inherited after the family campout). How else do you use up marshmallows? I don't know what else to use them for besides hot chocolate and rice krispy treats. Leave me a comment if you have other ideas for marshmallow usage.
They were a hit with the kids and I forgot how easy they are so I guess we'll have to make them more often. Nothing special, so if you want to ramp up your rice krispy treats look here and here. Or here.
This is just the plain old recipe right off the box.
3 Tbs. butter
4 cups mini marshmallows or 1 package (10 oz.) regular marshmallows (about 40)
6 cups Rice Krispies
Melt butter and marshmallows completely, then stir in cereal to coat evenly. Press into greased pan with a greased spatula or waxed paper and cool.
Cut into 2 inch squares. Best served same day.
