Who hasn’t had one of these? Better yet… who doesn’t love them??? (Well, Boss did go through a thing when he was younger where he would not eat them because he didn’t like to get his fingers sticky. He’s over that now.)
In 1941, Kellogg’s employee Mildred Day concocted and published a recipe for a Camp Fire Girls bake sale consisting of Rice Krispies, melted marshmallows, and margarine.
In 2008, I worked in the Confectionary in the Magic Kingdom, Disney World, while participating in their business internship program. I made enormous versions of these everyday, in all sorts of variations.
Fun fact #3:
That was my most favorite job EVER even though I gained 10lbs in a semester, and it was not from beer.
See what krispie treats do to you… you can’t help but feel FUN! okay okay okay enough… In case you were deprived of ever making these with your ma or pa as a child, here’s the recipe:
Krispie Treats Recipe
1 (10 oz., about 40) pkg. regular marshmallows or 3 cups miniature marshmallows
6 cups rice krispies cereal
In a large saucepan, melt butter over low heat. Add the marshmallows and continue to stir until the marshmallows have completely melted. Remove from heat.
Stir in the rice krispies cereal coating them well with the melted marshmallow mixture.
Using a buttered or silicone spatula, press the mixture evenly into a 13 x 9 x 2 inch pan which has been buttered or sprayed with non-stick spray or lined with wax paper.
Cut into squares when the mixture cools.
