Simply A (RD) Fact: Did you know that the original Rice Krispie Treats were invented to be sold as a fundraiser for the Camp Fire Girls.
Ingredients
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 10oz marshmallows
  • 7 cups rice square cereal
  • 6oz white chocolate, melted
  • Sprinkles
Instructions
  1. In a large, heavy pot set over medium heat, add in butter. When the butter is melted, add in the marshmallows and stir constantly until melted.
  2. Add in the rice square cereal. Quickly fold the cereal into the marshmallow. When the cereal is all coated, pour the cereal mixture into a greased 9x13-inch pan. *CAUTION: the mixture can still be hot* Spray your hand with cooking spray and press the cereal into an even, flat layer. Allow the treats to cool completely.
  3. Cut the treats into squares. Dip the lower portions of the treats into melted chocolate and gently shake off the excess. Decorate with sprinkles and then lay on a sheet of parchment paper to harden. Enjoy!
