Marshmallow Crispy Treats

Every time I have a rice crispy treat, I am taken right back to my childhood.  We don't make them often, but they are always a quick and easy (and fool-proof and yummy) treat.  It is fun to get the kids involved in measuring and stirring, and in this case, sculpting.  I remember doing the same with my mom when I was little.  Since we are coming up on Easter, we decided to change up the traditional pan for some egg-shaped treats, complete with sprinkles.

  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 5 1/2 cups mini marshmallows
  • 5 1/2 cups crisp rice cereal
  1. Melt butter over low heat in a 3 quart saucepan.
  2. Add marshmallows and stir until melted and fluid.  Remove from heat.
  3. Stir in rice cereal until evenly coated.
  4. Press mixture into a 9x13" pan.  Cool and cut into squares.  OR Press into plastic eggs that have been lightly sprayed with non-stick cooking spray and decorate.

Time: 15 minutes
Difficulty: Easy
