  1. Turned out great! If you only have large marshmallows, there are 8 large marshmallows to 1 cup of miniature marshmallows
  2. Since my kids are long grown and gone I haven't made these in ages, but when I found strawberry flavored marshmallows on the store shelf I decided to make an old favorite with a new twist. They turned a pretty pink and were flecked with the handful of dried mixed berries I threw in for - Read more ...
  3. If you like gooey then look no farther. Like previous people I use the microwave. For the best flavor use real butter.. a little extra doesn't hurt!;)I also doubled the vanilla extract and added an additional 1/2 cup of rice crispy cereal. I pressed into heart shaped pans and will be sending out "care packages" - Read more ...
  4. These are excellent as is. Gooey and tasty. I made a few changes for later batches: 1/2 tsp vanilla (to make the taste a bit more mild) 5 cups rice crispies also I added 1/4 cup of chocolate chips after I had almost completely mixes the bar mix (after they were not really warm). The - Read more ...
  5. Too gooey... needs a little more cereal
  6. The recipe was pretty good following the original recipe. I thought that it had a bit of a gritty/powdery taste to it. With the second batch I increased the cereal to 6 cups and added a tablespoon of the vanilla,and a teaspoon of corn syrup. They were so much better. Everyone loved them.
  7. RICE CRISPIE BARS = GOOEY OR WHY MAKE THEM!?? Great recipe - vanilla is a nice touch. I always melt my butter in the microwave and then mix in the marshmellows.... microwave another 15 seconds then mix in the cripies. Easier than than the pan. I like them thick also, so I make them in - Read more ...
  8. VERY GOOD! I took the suggestion of adding an extra 1/2 cup of cereal, and the consistency was perfect...not too sticky and gooey. The vanilla really adds to the flavor, and using real butter is highly recommended. I do suggest either making a double batch for the 9X13 pan, or using a 9X9 or 8X8 - Read more ...
  9. Perfect! I've never made rice crispie treats with vanilla, but it adds a great softness to the flavor. These are perfect as-is, but I just made a batch for Saint Patrick's day with these changes: cut back a little on the butter, went a little heavy on the marshmallows, and instead of vanilla I added - Read more ...
  10. I know this sounds ridiculous but I DON'T make Rice Krispe Bars - I tend to burn the marshmellow (or something) b/c they ALWAYS - NEVER FAIL - Come out hard as a rock!! Therefore, I always let my mom make them until last night!! I did increase the krispies by a 1/2c and THEY - Read more ...
