Rice Crispy Treats Notes

Rice Crispy treats aren't just for kids, although they are the simpliest of desserts. I play around with the cereals and add in extracts to tweak the flavors. This is one of my favorite combinations.

  • 40 large marshmallows
  • 1/2 stick butter or margarine (1/4 cup)
  • 4 cups Rice Crispy cereal
  • 2 cups Fruity Pebbles cereal
  • splash of vanilla extract
  • splash of almond extract
  • pan spray
  • aluminum foil
Serves / Yields

one 8X8 pan

Preparation Instructions

The whole process, including clean-up takes about ten minutes. Put the marshmallows and margarine/butter into a microwave safe bowl. Microwave for two minutes, stirring after the first minute.

While the marshmallows are melting, measure out the six cups of cereal, cover your pan with aluminum foil and spray it with pan spray.

When the marshmallows are melted, add the extracts and stir well. Add in the cereal and coat it all well. Work quickly, as the marshmallows get sticky as they cool. Transfer it to the greased pan and spread out.

They keep best in the fridge or freezer. Try not to eat the whole pan yourself!

This recipe was just fine, normal rice crispy treats but I don't think anyone is going to want to count out all the marshmellows. Could you put up how many cups it is for the little ones?
