Two Batches Later

These are the items needed to make Rice Krispie Squares:
You know, in case you didn't know. Now, these are the items to make Rice Krispie Squares (yes I said that already) according to the Rice Krispie box. You know, the one in the cereal aisle that snap, crackle, and pops. Though, they don't use that as their slogan anymore. It's "Mom's just know" now in case you wanted to know.

Anyways. This was the second time I made Rice Krispie Sqaures this week, because the first time I made them, I used another recipe and it was a bust. (Bust = went really hard and we couldn't cut them! Ahh!) I'm not going to share where I found this recipe because that's just mean. But I will say, you don't make banana splits without banana's, so why, oh why, would you make Rice Krispie Squares without Rice Krispies. Hrm? I know, you don't know! This is what my boyfriend said, he said "they do it right, why would you use another recipe", I came back and said that I just wanted to try it. That's all I wanted to do, but I'll never ever go back. Ever.

Anyways. You want the recipe? I got it for you. Yep, you!
But you'll have to wait until the end.

Get a pot, put it on the stove top, turn the stove top on. Wait until it gets hot.

Add the butter.
I'll tell you how much later, or you could just go to your cupboard and read the box. I'm sure you have it. No wait! Don't! Continue reading!

While the butter melts, butter your pan. That's right, put your fingers in your butter and rub it all over the pan. It's all good. I won't tell. Just don't lick your fingers in between, now that would be gross. That's like drinking milk from the carton, and we don't do that. Actually I don't even drink milk, unless it's been soaked in chocolate.

So your butter has melted, yes? Good. Okay. 

Add your marshmallows. The recipe says 5 cups of marshmallows or one 250g bag of mini marshmallows. I never liked making these with big marshmallows (you'd use 40 if you did it this way). Maybe I'm impatient and the little ones seem to melt faster. So add your 250g less 1 little marshmallow (I'm not sure where that one went, ... ahem, definitely not in my mouth) bag into your melted butter.

Let it melt. And stir, stir, and stir some more.

Once all the lumps are gone from the marshmallows. Take it off the heat! Make sure you do this.

Then add the Rice Krispies. And of course you don't need to use brand name Rice Krispies if that's not your thing. Honestly, I've done this in the past, and they just didn't taste the same in my opinion. But if you can't tell than go ahead!

Once it's all mixed up, put it in that buttered pan of yours.

The recipe says to flatten your batch with a buttered wooden spoon, but I use a plastic spoon not buttered and I find it works better.

I would of taken a picture of a piece of it all gooey and stuff, but I ate them all. Oops.

Oh right, the recipe.
1/4 cup of butter (or margaine)
250g bag of mini marshmallows
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
6 cups rice krispies cereal

melt butter in pot on low heat. add marshmallows and stir until melted.
take off heat. add vanilla and cereal. stir until completely coated.

firmly press the mixture into a buttered pan (they say 10 x 15-inch)
cut into the size you want.

Enjoy :)
