6 cups Rice Krispies

Heat butter and marshmellows.
Stir in Rice Krispies.
Spread in Pam'd 9 x 13 pan.

Joelle's microwave version uses the same ingredients, but there are some important variations:

  • it is important that you use NO LESS THAN the 3 Tbs of butter (that's probably true of the stovetop variation too)
  • half the butter gets cut up and put under the marshmallows in the bowl that goes in the microwave, and 1/2 the butter gets cut up and put over the marshmallows
  • the butter and marshmallows get microwaved around 3 minutes before stirring in the Rice Krispies, but start checking at 2 minutes
  • have the Rice Krispies ready to stir immediately when the marshmallows are ready
  • butter or grease the spoon that you use for stirring
