These were a staple at school bake sales and at Girl Scout meetings - and adults STILL love these at dinner parties! A big hit for a child's class at school - or for Halloween [print out labels with your name and address to place inside saran wrap- Melting the butter and marshmallows in a microwave makes this super easy and quick!

This is the best recipe for Rice Krispy Treats!. I use Kroger brand cereal and marshmallows. I always double the recipe. It takes 2 (10 oz.) bags of marshmallows and a whole 12 oz box of cereal and 1 stick of margarine. I spray a jelly roll pan with non-stick spray and then press the mixture and flatten it . Then let it set up and then cut into squares and devour the pan.

These were great. My mom used to make these for me when I was little. I had never before made them for myself and I was glad to find the recipe. Thanks.
