When I get the munchies, I often crave something sweet with a little bit of crunch. While passing the cereal section in the grocery store this past week, I realized Rice Krispy Marshmallow Treats were the answers to my prayers. They are sweet, crunchy yet soft, and most importantly, delicious. They are fairly simple, yet messy, to make. I use my own recipe for this one because it leaves room for improvisation and minor changes.
You’ll Need: Butter, Rice Krispies, Marshmallows
1. Melt 3 tablespoons of butter in the microwave and mix in 1-2 cups of marshmallows until soft and gooey
2. Transfer marshmallow/butter mix into greased square pan
3. Pour 1 1/2 cups of Rice Krispies cereal into the butter/marshmallow mix
4. Mix together with hands or utensils (make sure your hands are greasy before molding the treats or it’ll be a sticky mess!)
Instead of the usual squares that come wrapped in the shiny blue packaging, I wanted to form these treats into sweet spheres. These snacks paired with ice-cold milk are a match made in heaven.
