Rice Krispies

My aunt called me over once again to bake some treats with her two lovely daughters as well as my brother. She kept it simple, and went with the classic rice krispy treat.
The only ingredients necessary were 6 cups of rice krispy cereal, 10 ounces of marshmallows, and 3 tablespoons of margarine (I used oil).

To start it off, melt your marshmallows in a pan with the margarine/oil (if you're worried about the marshmallows sticking to your pan, you can simply buy premade marshmellow fluff)

Next, mix in the melted marshmallows with the rice krispies until they're completely combined together

Remember that the marshmallow mixture is extremely sticky and will constantly stick to your mixing device, so it takes a good few minutes to really layer/mix the crispies with the marshmallow all together

When the fully combined mixture has cooled off a bit spread it out onto an ungreased dish smooshing it all down together (the more compact/dense you want your rice crispies, the cooler the mixture has to be) When it's cooled, you can cut the rice crispie treats into all sorts of shapes with a cookie cutter.

If I had the time, or thought of it earlier, I would have definitely drizzled chocolate over the tops of the crispies with sprinkles of sprinkles on top, or mixed in mini chocolate chips into the batter for a chocolatey twist to the rice krispy treats. However, plain or with chocolate, they taste declicious either way.

The fun shapes were given to the kids, and the extra ends were formed into a nice fat lump for me
