Rice Krispies Treat

I usually buy this snack a lot for the kids and so I finally thought it would be nice to just make it since all the ingredients needed are readily available at home. I was just amazed how few ingredients can turn something so delicious and kid friendly. No more store bought!


6 cups Rice Krispies
1 bag (10.5-oz) miniature marshmallows
¼ cup (2 ounces) unsalted butter ( I used only 4 tbsp)
1 cup milk chocolate chips or couple of tablespoon of Nutella, melted

1. Butter a 9×13-inch pan and set aside. Make sure you grease everything...
2. Measure the cereal into a large mixing bowl and set aside. Melt the marshmallows and butter together in a medium saucepan over medium heat (or in the microwave for about 3 minutes, but keep watch so the marshmallows don’t puff over the sides of the bowl!). Pour the melted marshmallow mixture over the cereal and mix well so the cereal is coated. Pour into the prepared pan and use a buttered piece of wax  paper or the back of a plastic spoon to press evenly into pan.
3. In the microwave, melt the chocolate chips. Using a spoon, drizzle or spread the melted chocolate across the top. Place the pan in the refrigerator to set before cutting and serving. Store in an airtight container.
