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.
