Good Old Fashioned Rice Krispie Squares

When someone says “ooey-gooey” I think of two things. (1) A warm, half-baked brownie (oh my there’s drool everywhere..) and (2) melted marshmallow goodness. Marshmallows are underrated. Sometimes I feel like the food blog community gets too caught up with making daring recipes, that they forget about the simple stuff. Like Mom’s good old rice krispie squares that you used to sell at bakesales, or eat warm right from the pot. So mom, this blog’s for you and your yummy, simple, mouth-watering rice krispie squares. Thanks.

¼ cup butter
1 pkg (250g) mini marshmellows
1 tsp vanilla
5 cups rice krispies

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

2. Stir in vanilla. Stir in rice krispies cereal until well coated.
3. Using lightly buttered spatula, press into buttered 13 x 9″ pan.
4. Allow mixture to cool. Cut into bars. Best if served same day

As I said – simple, and delicious. Love you mom.

    Rice Krispie squares sure brings back memories. A cup of hot chocolate and a plate of squares just seemed to sooth what was ailing you. Your mom is a good cook.
