A walk down memory lane with Kellogg’s Rice Krispies Treats
These sweet treats take me back to Birthday parties and market days during my youth. Rice Krispies Treats are so simple and quick to make, we sued to make them in large batches. There is something so satisfying about the first crunchy bite and the sweet, sugary, taffy like texture of the melted marshmallows that hold together this bite-size of bliss.
Some of us got “fancy” by using Coco pops or Strawberry pops – because variety is the spice of life.
I decided to share this treat from my youth with my daughter. We have been baking and cooking a lot recently. I’m home schooling and I find the kitchen is the easiest place to share maths principles; measuring, counting and telling the time. My Pantry is running low on stock but out of the corner of my eye I glimpsed the Rice Krispies, which are usually relegated to breakfast time. I knew we had some marshmallows – so the decision was made.
Now this recipe is em-blazed on my brain as I have been making it for many years. Its in my family recipe book that my mom printed out for me.
3 tablespoons butter
1 package Marshmallows (roughly 4 cups)
6 cups Kellogg's® Rice Krispies® cereal/ Coco pops or Strawberry Pops
Sprinkles of your choice
1. In large saucepan melt butter over low heat. Once butter is melted ,add marshmallows and stir until completely melted.
2. Once marshmallows are completed melted, remove from heat.
3. Add cereal. Stir until well coated.
4. Coat an oven with cooking spray and lay a layer of wax paper on the oven tray.
5. Coat a spatula with butter (to stop the mixture from sticking to it) Use the spatula to press the mixture into the baking tray as evenly as possible.
6. Let the mixture cool . Add sprinkles of your choice ( we sued multicolored sprinkles and edible glitter because Em wanted to make Unicorn cookies) and cut into squares.
7. Annnnd Serve!
* Note: the melted marshmallow mixture is incredibly hot and could result in burns if spilt. Parental supervision is required for young children.
