The recipe is so simple and takes just minutes from pot to treat.
- 40 large marshmallows
- 3 tbsp magarine
- 1 tsp vanila
- 6 cups Rice Krispies
- 1. Melt margarine in the large saucepan.
- 2. Add in the marshmallows and stir over medium heat until melted.
- 3. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.
- 4. Add the Rice Krispies and stir mixture till all the Rice Krispies are covered in the marshmallow sauce.
- 5. Pour mixture into buttered baking dish.
- Cover your hands in a light margarine coating just before forming these treats as this coating makes it is easier to use your hands to press the mixture into shapes or molds. (Keeps you from getting all sticky gooey too!)
- Put the saucepan to soak in warm water. Any remaining marshmallow mixture will dissolve in the water.
- You can enjoy this treat within minutes of preparation.
It is a breakfast tradition to Snap Crackle and Pop!
