I am such a kid at heart…I still LOVE Rice Crispy Treats! (anyone with me?) I make them “for the kids” on special occasions. But, I don’t like to make just any rice crispy treats…they have to be the BEST EVER! I love the ones at the coffee houses that are HUGE…the flat ones that fall apart? Not so much (shhh…sorry!!!)
*Wondering if I can eat these anymore? Nope..haha, the butter gets me. So, I have a “gluten and dairy free” option at the bottom that are AWESOME. No biggie…peanut butter is my friend too.
Melt butter in a large pot on medium-low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until melted. Remove from heat.
Press into a buttered 9×13 pan. My trick? I wet my (washed) hands with water and spread and press…nothing sticks and it is easy peasy. (lol, my hands…they have done a lot of work in these 32 years of living…they aren’t pretty, but they have made lots of meals, held babies, cleaned, high- fived, changed diapers, typed blogs, dialed friends- you name it…so I am blessed)
Check. It. Out. There it is….I am officially a cool mom because I make “The Best Rice Crispy Treats Ever!”
