Easy enough for kids to make and fun to eat, Rice Krispie Treats have become a classic in the cookie world. You can melt the marshmallows and butter in a pan on the stove, but microwaving them is cooler.
- 1/4 cup butter or margarine
- 4 cups miniature marshmallows
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)
- 6 cups Rice Krispies cereal (or similar crispy rice cereal)
