  1. MMMM!!!! So delicious...I didn't change a thing. All I did was used wax paper in a 9x13 pan and melted semisweet chocolate filled one side of the pan put that in the fridge. Once it firmed up I buttered my hands and put the treats in the pan. The cut easily and the ones with - Read more ...
  2. As written I give this a four. I have tried it this way and we just prefer the recipe I have from the 60s or 70s. My daughter's friends at college go crazy over that earlier version. It uses 4 Tablespoons of butter, 1(10 oz) bag of marshmallows and 5 cups of rice crispies. This - Read more ...
  3. So good! I always double this by using a whole box (12.5 oz) of Rice Krispies, 16oz mini marshmallow, 1 stick of butter, and I put it all into one since 9x13 pan for extra thick treats. I pack in and smooth out treats by pressing into pan with a piece of wax paper. So - Read more ...
  4. I learned from a friend of mine to stir in peanut butter chips at the last. Oh boy. Is that HEAVEN!
  5. I noticed everyone putting their suggestions on how to flatten the mix into the pan - my tried and true way -I butter my hands...just like putting on lotion and flatten it with my like a charm EVERY time. Makes a classic treat even easier to make!

  8. What am I doing wrong? Am I the only one who can't make rice krispies? Mine turned out extremely soggy...
  9. I make this recipe every year at Halloween for 300 people, so I've learned how to make them fast! Don't hesitate to use the microwave version - you'll never go back to the old way again. Other cereal favorites include cocoa krispies and "fruity pebbles" (generics are equally good). My super-secret tip: Pour the melted - Read more ...
  10. Came out GREAT! I used butter and a little orange food coloring. I buttered up my hands shaped them into carrots and stuck a green piece of sour licorice onto the end for a stem. We served them at my son's kindergarten Petter Rabbit play. They were an absolute hit! Not a single one was - Read more ...
