I was a little surprised that these were not posted on 'Zaar. Using your microwave and 1 bowl you can make these treats in less than 5 minutes. I have used a 7 ounce jar of marshmallow cream instead of the marshmallows.

These came together quickly and went just as fast. I did add a little vanilla right before adding Rice Krispies.

Perfect recipe for those quick snacks and treats!! I threw this together for lunchbox treats when the kids went back to school. My kids loved them!! I used an 8 cup glass measure and it worked perfectly for making this recipe. I did not need to adjust anything - it was great. I do have a 1500 watt microwave so it was a breeze! A little tip that helped me was to lightly spray/coat my spatula when pressing the mixture into the pan so the marshmallows did not stick to that either. Thanks for sharing! Made for Zaar Alphabet Soup Tag game.

Am I the only one who had trouble with these? I thought it was impossible to screw up rice Krispy treats! I followed this recipe exact and the marshmallows and butter barely covered the krispies. Just tastes like a bunch of krispies stuck together, no marshmallow flavor. I got my moms recipe, and the amount of butter and marshmallows she uses is WAY more than this! I was making these for a party and planning on making two batches and made these first and they turned out horrible. Now I have to go buy more of the ingredients so I can make another batch the right way. Not trying to sound rude but I am very disappointed. :/
