Mom's Rice Krispie Treats

What can I say about Rice Krispie treats that hasn’t already been said?

These are definitely one of my very favorite desserts or treats- have been ever since I can recall. I turned the big 29 in April and my mom sent me home with a big pan of ‘em as one of my gifts. And. I ate all but 1/4 of the pan in a matter of a week. Phew, that was therapeutic. I should be blaming it on the nursing, huh?

I don’t like to use the phrase “the best” a lot, but these really are the best Rice Krispie treats I have ever tasted. Give them a whirl this weekend- from the looks and sounds of it, the weather here in Utah is going to be crummy.


2 1 lb. bags of miniature marshmallows

2 cubes butter +2 tablespoons (don’t discard the butter wrappers)

1 19 oz box Rice Krispies

Melt the butter in an x-large pot until just slightly brown (medium-low heat). Pour in marshmallows and allow to melt. Stir, allowing mallows to melt in with the butter. When there are no more lumps and the mixture is smooth turn off heat and pour in Rice Krispies. Stir and fold until all the Rice Krispies are coated. Pour coated Rice Krispies into 2 9x11 glass pans. Or you can use a jelly roll pan. You could even use a bundt mold for crying out loud. You get it…

Take butter wrappers and use them to press and mold the mixture into pans (see picture below).
