The PERFECT Rice Krispy Treats

 ....and I am  not even kidding!

Oh...hey there!  Long time no see.  I wonder how many blog posts I have started that way.  When I tell you my 2020 got worse a few weeks ago, you might not believe me, but it did.  Please keep me and my family in your prayers for safety, peace, and understanding.  Thank you!

I have a long time relationship with rice krispy treats.  As a kid they were one of my favorites, and my mom used to make the best Scotcharoos too!  She always made them when it was my turn to take treats to CCD.  Remember the days of taking homemade food for treats?  Me too.  Anyway, they were always a hit and became a fast favorite of mine.

I have spent my ENTIRE adult life DEDICATED to the exact and perfect measurement of all Rice Krispy Treat ingredients for the perfect gooey, chewy, NEVER HARD square of goodness.  I was successful, (thank you, thank you) years ago but don't think I have ever shared.  For most of my American friends, you know all about these treats but for my foreign friends, this might be a fun treat to try!  Through out the box, those measurements are useless!  Here we go!

8 cups Rice Krispy Cereal

20 ozs  marshmallows

1.5 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 cup salted butter

In a heavy bottom pot, melt butter completely.  Add in marshmallows and slow constantly on LOW heat until all marshmallows are melted and combined with the butter.  YUM!  Add in vanilla and stir it in.  Now pour in your cereal and stir well, from the bottom up.  Stir until the marshmallow mixture is completely combined with the cereal.  Pour into a 9x13 pan and spread evenly.  Top with sprinkles if you choose.  I MUST have sprinkles.  You don't have to do the but they won't be as fun and you won't be as cool without them.  Just sayin.....
