Every year my husband’s family has an Advent luncheon each Sunday during the month of December! Today we lit the Hope candle! After dinner they wanted to make dessert together, so we made Rice Krispy Treats with the kids. Always one of my favorites to make growing up!! Sticky fingers && all!!
We got our recipe from the Kellogg’s website!! Here was our adventure:
3 tablespoons butter
1 package (10 oz., about 40) JET-PUFFED Marshmallows
— OR —
4 cups JET-PUFFED Miniature Marshmallows
6 cups Kellogg’s® Rice Krispies® cereal
1. In large saucepan melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat.
2. Add KELLOGG’S RICE KRISPIES cereal. Stir until well coated.
3. Using buttered spatula or wax paper evenly press mixture into 13 x 9 x 2-inch pan coated with cooking spray. Cool. Cut into 2-inch squares. Best if served the same day.
In microwave-safe bowl heat butter and marshmallows on HIGH for 3 minutes, stirring after 2 minutes. Stir until smooth. Follow steps 2 and 3 above. Microwave cooking times may vary.
**We add 1 1/2 teaspoons of vanilla extract to the mix before putting it in the microwave for some extra flavor!!
We then melted some Nestle Toll House White Chocolate Chips by putting 2 cups of chips in a glass bowl and putting it in the microwave for 1 minute. Stir them and put them back in the microwave for 10 seconds and then stir. Continue doing this until all chips are melted. For one batch of Rice Krispy Treats we just spread the chocolate on the Treats and put Christmas-y sprinkles on them!
Loved making these memories with the kids! Helping mix everything, getting excited about the sprinkles && reminiscing over past Christmas’ and things we are excited about coming up this season!
Do you have any special rice krispy treat recipes? What is your favorite thing to bake with the little ones? We’d love to hear!!
