This is the recipe for the original rice krispies treats squares...It never fails! Plus, it is a great way to use up a box of cereal! For best results, use fresh marshmallows. I have replaced the butter once with Mott's Healthy Baking butter or oil substitute (it was basically an unsweetened apple sauce) and they still turned out great!
I copied this recipe off the back of a jar of marshmallow cream. The recipe was for chocolate-walnut fudge. I just change the flavor of the candy chips for different flavors. It is a no fail recipe and always comes out the way you think fudge should.
These are a Christmas staple in my house. I remember standing on a chair and making these with my mother when I was probably 5 or 6. They're easy, yummy, and keep well for an extended period of time. They also freeze well. Prep time is set up time, Cook time is how long it takes to get the mixture in the pan. (I live at high altitude, this will be slightly shorter at lower altitudes)
These are so good. I have to make 2 dozen for my grandmother every Christmas and she refuses to share them. She actually hides them and pulls them out one at a time! I really have no idea how many this makes as I usually double or triple the recipe. Also it depends on how much of the center you like . UPDATE: some people have had difficulty with the filling being to runny....adding more powdered sugar is not going to alter the taste so feel free to add another 1/2 c to a cup with out worry :)
I could not believe nobody had posted this recipe for caramels. It is SO easy and SO rich and turns out perfect for me every time. I hope that you have as much success as I do. I also use this for my caramel apples. My mom says that nobody's got anything on my caramel apples, even the people who make them at the fair. I am posting prep time as an hour total because I am posting the methods for candy and apples.
My kids love to have their friends over and make this great holiday snack. We even doubled it and sold it at school for the Science Camp fund raiser bake sale. Needless to say, sold out! COOKS NOTE: Great to package and give out as Christmas gifts.
NOTE: this is an adopted recipe and I give full credit to the previous Zaar owner for it's success, I hope it is a recipe that will raise lots of cash for good causes on bake sale tables, everywhere it is made :)
Thanks for a keeper!
