Fall makes me want to bake. And cook comfort food. And eat. Okay, fall is a pretty delicious season - can we agree on that?
On a weekend coffee date with a friend, the subject turned to baking and the simple joy of Rice Krispie Treats (it just did, okay?). My friend is a new mom with a toddler as well and spoke of the convenience of buying them pre-made. But we agreed it's just not the same. So on the way home I picjed up the super complicated ingredients needed to make this tasty goodness (yup - butter, marshmellows and Rice Krispies) and set about a little factory of sorts, eventually filling my fridge with batches and batches.
I used the classic Kellog's recipe here and I swear, it was about 5 minutes per batch. Pretty soon our fridge was filled with trays of treats...needless to say, Jack was a happy boy!
Rice Krispie Treats
1. Melt 3 Tb of butter in a big pot over medium heat. Add 4 cups mini-marshmellows until melted.
2. Add 6 cups of Rice Krispies and stir to coat. Spoon into greased 9x12 pan and use a wet spatula to smooth the top. Chill!
Could they be any easier? I must have forgotten or I would make them every weekend! I packaged up my treats and dropped them off to my girlfriend, my grandma and my sister. Good deeds for the week? Done and done. Plus I got the leftovers :) they lasted about a half a day...
Have a lovely amazing day!
