So I haven’t done a how-to in a while, right? I figured this time it should be a recipe. It’s simple, fast, and classic.
Rice Crispy treats are made with a bunch of extra gunk, right? So why not make your own? This is a really simple post on how to do so.
How to Make Rice Crispy Treats —in 3 Steps
– 4 cups of miniature marshmallows … or 40 regularly sized
— 6 cups of crispy rice cereal … I used generic, it tastes the same
— 3 tbsp of butter or margarine
— Chocolate syrup … optional
(for a stove)
1) In a large saucepan, melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat.
2) Add your crispy rice cereal to the saucepan. Stir until the cereal is evenly mixed.
3) A 9×9 pan is suggested, but if something goes awry and you don’t have enough, use a smaller pan. Spread the mixture into the pan, and let it cool.
Optional 4) Squirt chocolate syrup.
I tried to do the syrup argyle-style. It didn’t work.
