Recipe: New & Improved Rice Krispie Treats

Summary: December 24 - A Cookie A Day Until Christmas!  There’s nothing really “New & Improved”, I just wanted to get your attention. I don’t know about you, but I’m enjoying my Christmas Eve and not stressing over cookies. I have never met anyone that didn’t like Rice Krispie treats, but if you’re bored with them, try some of the optional mix-in’s. Merry Christmas!

Ingredients

  • ¼ cup butter
  • 1 – 10 ounce bag of marshmallows
  • 6 cups rice cereal

Instructions

  1. Melt butter in large pan. Add marshmallows and melt, stirring occasionally.
  2. At this point, you would add any food color or flavorings.
  3. Mix in cereal. Press into greased 9 x 13 pan.

Variations

Mix-in’s:

  • ½ teaspoon peppermint extract and 6 candy canes, crushed – Kelly’s idea!
  • ½ cup peanut butter and top with a layer of melted chocolate – Some inspired person’s idea!
  • Substitute corn flakes, add green food coloring and red hots – Julie’s idea!
