|2 to 4 tbsp stick
1 package (10 oz) miniature marshmallows
6 cups Kellogg's Rice Krispies cereal
Because I don't like to spend a
lot of time on cleanup, and because I only have an 8-cup (2-liter)
mixing bowl, I make Rice Krispies Treats in two batches like so:
1. Coat two (glass) square baking
dishes with margarine or non-stick spray. Measure and set aside two
3-cup portions of cereal. Tear off two sheets of wax paper large
enough to cover your baking dishes, with an inch or two of overlap
on each side.
2. Combine half the butter and half
the package of marshmallows in a glass, microwave-safe mixing bowl.
Heat on HIGH for 90 seconds. Stir a few times, preferably with a
large metal serving spoon, until the mixture is smooth.
3. Working quickly, stir in 3 cups of
cereal, evenly coating cereal with the warm marshmallow mixture.
Enjoy straight from the mixing bowl warm -or- Pour into baking dish
and use the sheet of wax paper to press down the mixture into the
dish. Cover with the sheet of wax paper. When cool, cut into
