Sometimes I just want to make a little snack. Something special for the kids and me for good behavior, or a special day, or a Tuesday. If I make a giant batch of cookies, or a whole pan of rice krispy treats, more than likely some will be thrown out, because we just can't eat them all.
While eating breakfast a while back with Hubby (eating fruity pebbles), I was reminded of how we used to make krispy treats with them in college. Yummmmm! I told him I was going to try to make just three for a mid-morning snack. And it worked!!
1 cup krispy cereal
3 large marshmallows (the roasting size)
1 tbsp butter
In a small saucepan, heat butter until melted, then add marshmallows.
Stir around until the marshmallows are completely melted.
Stir in cereal, coating it well with the sticky mixture.
Pour mixture into a glass dish, and form into a rectangle. Just use your fingers, or a spatula.
Cut into 3 (or 4 smaller) squares of krispy treats!
A 5 minute afternoon snack, perfect for celebrating a good day, or a Tuesday.
And no piles of snacks leftover!
