Who doesn’t love Rice Krispie Treats?
Nope, I didn’t think so.
The iconic cereal of my youth has had a longevity that extends to my kids today. My boys LOVE Rice Krispie Treats.
These fun and funky ghost-shaped confections will delight kids and adults alike. Plus, they use a product we all know and love.
(Recipe from www.ricekrispies.com)
3 Tbsp butter or margarine
1 (10 oz) pkg regular marshmallows, or 4 cups miniature marshmallows
6 cups Kellogg’s Rice Krispies cereal
Canned frosting or decorating gel
1. In a large saucepan, melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat.
2. Add Kellogg’s Rice Krispies cereal. Stir until well coated.
3. Using a 1/2-cup measuring cup coated with cooking spray, divide warm cereal mixture into portions. Using buttered hands, shape each portion into a ghost shape. Let cool. Decorate with coconut, frosting and/or candies. Best if served the same day.
In a microwave-safe bowl, heat butter and marshmallows on HIGH for 3 minutes, stirring after 2 minutes. Stir until smooth. Follow steps 2 and 3 above. Microwave cooking times may vary.
For best results, use fresh marshmallows.
One (7 oz) jar of marshmallow crème can be substituted for marshmallows.
Diet, reduced calorie or tub margarine is not recommended.
Store no more than two days at room temperature in an airtight container. To freeze, place in a single layer on wax paper in an airtight container. Freeze for up to 6 weeks. Let stand at room temperature for 15 minutes before serving.
Kellogg’s has reduced the sodium content of Rice Krispies to meet current consumer flavor and nutrition preferences. Rice Krispies Treats made with the lower sodium cereal taste great without any added salt, but if you desire, add 1/4 teaspoon salt to the butter before melting. Continue with recipe as directed.
