Rice Krispie Treats!

Posted by Hello
According to Kellogg's, an employee by the name of Mildred Day concocted the snack as a treat for a Camp Fire Girls fundraiser. The recipe was first published in 1941 and has been such a success that Kellogg's has been selling a premade version of Rice Krispies Treats for many years.
And these special treats have been a childhood staple for many a kid (myself included.)

Of course, tastes have changed and the desire for more "fun" shapes have invaded the Krispies Treats arena. Here's one that would be good for Dad or Grad!


3 tablespoons margarine or butter
1 package (10 oz., about 40) regular marshmallows or 4 cups miniature marshmallows
1/2 cup Peanut butter

1. Melt margarine in large saucepan over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat.

2. Mix peanut butter into the marshmallow mixture.

3. Add KELLOGG'S COCOA KRISPIES cereal. stir until well coated.

4. Shape mixture into 3-inch footballs.

5. Use prepared frosting to pipe on football markings and stitching. Best if served the same day.

MICROWAVE DIRECTIONS:Microwave margarine and marshmallows at HIGH 2 minutes in microwave-safe bowl. Stir to combine. Microwave at HIGH 1 minute longer. Stir until smooth. Add peanut butter, stir until smooth. Add cereal and stir until well coated. Shape mixture as directed in step 4 above and decorate.Microwave cooking times may vary.

NOTE:For best results, use fresh marshmallows.1 jar (7 oz.) marshmallow creme can be substituted for marshmallows. Diet, reduced calorie or tub margarine is not recommended.

Store no more than two days in airtight container.
