My mom has always made awesome rice crispies treats ever since i was a little kid! It's a great tradition for me, still :) brings back warm fuzzy memories.
All you have to do is melt a bag of marshmallows with some butter in the microwave or using a double boiler method on the stove (put a bowl containing the marshmallows and butter over a pot of boiling water to melt without burning.) Then mix in a box of rice crispies and whatever else you want! My mom always adds coconut and chopped walnuts, yummy! Press the mixture out into a greased 13X9" pan asap before it starts to set. Then you use the same double boiler or microwave method to melt a bag of chocolate chips, and while melted spread the chocolate all over the top of the rice crispies treats! let it set up in the fridge and cut into squares and enjoy, it's so delicious!
you can also make rice crispies treats in molds, like cute ghosts or pumpkin shapes!
