The Boy really loves rice krispie treats, so this week I tried my hand a making the simple sweet. The recipe is beyond easy with just three ingredients and there’s really no way to mess it up. Unless, of course, you are me and you drop your phone into the hot melted marshmallows while trying to take pictures for your blog. Yeah. Not good. Nevertheless, I definitely recommend giving this DIY a try (just hold onto your phones!):
– 1 bag of marshmallows
– 6 cups of Rice Krispies cereal
– 3 tablespoons of butter
In a large pot, melt butter until completely liquid. Add marshmallows and stir until you get a smooth fluff. Add cereal, mix until evenly coated, then spoon into individual muffin tins so that there is no cutting necessary. Let cool and enjoy! (Note that the mixing in of the cereal takes a lot of arm strength — so you’ll work off all of the calls you’re going to consume later! Also, if your pot is not large enough to fit all of the cereal at once (make sure to check this before beginning!), simply make the recipe in two parts.)
Let me know how your sweet treats turn out!
