lazy woman’s rice krispies treats

December 15, 2010

Sometimes you want some Rice Krispies treats and you buy a bag of mini marshmallows and a box of Rice Krispies and you have every intention of making those delicious little things.  But in the morning, you have a craving for them and you just don’t want to wait, and you just don’t have the time to make those treats (even though they’re not very labor intensive).   Well, here’s my solution for you.   Throw some mini marshmallows into your morning bowl of Rice Krispies cereal and satisfy your craving the easy way.  If you want the dryer sort of marshmallow that goes best with cereal (as in Lucky Charms), leave the marshmallows out on the counter (covered, lest you get bugs) and let them dry out a bit overnight.  But that’s a lot of effort, and all you really want is some marshmallows and Rice Krispies, right?  Right.
