snap, crackle, pop!

Rice krispies have been on of my favorites for a very long time. Yesterday, we were going to get to hang out with some friends we very rarely get to see so I decided to whip up some yummy treats for them. I decided on original rice krispies, peanut butter rice krispies and homemade almond joys (recipe coming soon)! Everything turned out great and everyone loved them! Here's the recipe I used for the rice krispies.

Rice Krispies
adapted from the Kellog's Rice Krispie cereal box

6 cups puffed rice cereal
1 pkg or 10 oz., marshmallows
3 tbsp. butter or margarine
1/2 cup peanut butter (optional)

Melt butter in large saucepan, then add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. If using peanut butter add with the marshmallows. When this is completely melted take pan off heat and add cereal. Then, spread onto greased baking sheet with wax paper or buttered spatula. Let cool, cut into squares or use cookie cutters to make shapes and enjoy!
