Favorite Ingredients Friday (Rice Krispie Treats, soft & gooey)

Good Friday to you all! It's time for another Favorite Ingredients Friday recipe exchange! I'm so sorry I missed last week with no notice.  It was a long holiday weekend and I got busy with my family!  I hope you understand.  If any of you would like to re-post recipes that you might have published last week, please feel free to do so!

Upcoming Themed Schedule
June 6- Freezer Edition II
June 20- Refreshing Drinks Edition II
July 4- 4th of July Edition II

Yesterday I decided to make Rice Krispie Treats with my son and I looked on the Kellog's cereal box and couldn't find the recipe.  I know what the three ingredients are, I just didn't know the proper measurements.  So, I went online and looked for the recipe and discovered that I had more marshmallows than needed.  So, I did another Google search for rice krispie treats recipe with 16 oz. bag of marshmallows.  Lo and behold, a user published her doubled recipe on

Here's what the user makeiteasy4me came up with.

Kellog's Rice Krispie Treats (the soft and gooey kind)

11.5 cups Rice Krispies (a 12 oz. box gives you just enough)
1 whole stick of butter
16 oz bag of mini marshmallows (I only had the large ones and they worked fine)

Melt the butter sloooowly in a large pot on the stovetop. Make sure the butter doesn't turn brown at all.  If the butter gets brown, the treats will be dry. Mix in the marshmallows and melt them just as slowly. Add Rice Krispies a cup at a time, stirring constantly. My little helper poured while I stirred. Grease a 13x9 pan with cold butter and then spread the Rice Krispie Treat mixture into the pan and let cool before cutting. Since this is a double batch, you'll probably fill the pan to the top, which gives you nice and thick treats! These are quite soft and gooey, even after they've cooled!

Now, I look forward to seeing your Favorite Ingredients Friday recipe! I won't be able to visit your recipes right away but fear not, I will stop by to visit your recipe as soon as I can!

Don't forget to link your specific recipe post link on Mr. Linky so I can see what's cooking at your house!

Oh, and be sure to put the title of your recipe in parenthesis! It makes it so much quicker for me to go back and search for recipes as I build my weekly menu.
