The other day, Carly wrote beautifully about the Supposed Tos. I loved her post, and the idea of doing what appeals to you, not what you feel you are Supposed To do. Amen, Carly.
Dear readers, you are Supposed To make Rice Krispie treats with Rice Krispies.
Right, I mean, it’s in the name.
But if the spirit moves you, you could make them with any cereal.
Queen Cupcake and I have a big trip (for a big birthday) here planned soon. And until that day comes, you can find me in my kitchen, enjoying these.
I can feel the sugar coating my teeth with each bite.
To make a 9 x 13 pan-ful, you will need:
- 3 T butter
- 1, 10 oz. bag marshmallows
- 6 C Fruity Pebbles cereal
Grease a 9 x 13 inch pan, or spray with cooking spray.
Melt butter in large saucepan over medium heat. Add marshmallows and stir, constantly, until completely melted. Remove saucepan from heat and stir in cereal. Press into prepared pan with wax paper, or rubber spatula. Let cool to room temperature, cut into squares (the sharper the knife, the better), and serve.
* A note: When you take this giant saucepan with melted butter and marshmallows, and when you stir 6 C of neon colored cereal into the mix, you will gasp at the pot you have to clean. You will wonder whether or not you will ever spend a night not trying to get the last of the goop off the pot. But I promise, with hot water, and approximately 5 minutes of soak time (less than the time it takes for your treats to cool), the pan will be good as new.
