So I was curious about the "Rice Krispies Treats" cereal vs. regular "Rice Krispies" cereal and wondered if you could make traditional rice krispy treats out of it. So I bought the cereal, however there was a recipe for it right on the side of the box. So of course it can be done and not surprisingly it tasted the exact same as regular rice krispy treats. Here's the recipe, just in case you dont already have it... actually theres tons of different recipes for Rice Krispy Treats. For instance, the one on the marshmallows pkg is different then the one on the rice krispies cereal box. The ingredients are all the same but the ratios are different. Not sure which recipe is best): but heres the one I used...
Rice Krispy Teats
1/2 cup butter
1 (10.5 oz) pkg mini marshmallows
6 cups Rice Krispies cereal
1 cup mini chocolate chips or mini m&ms
In a large saucepan, melt butter and marshmallows over low heat stirring constantly until completely melted. Remove pan from heat. Quickly add cereal and stir till fully combined. Pour mixture into buttered 8x8" square pan. (I use either glass or silicone. Metal gives me the chills). Sprinkle top of krispy squares w/ chocolate chips. Let cool for apx 1 hr. Cut into 16 squares!
