Ok, who relaunches a new-ish blog during the Holiday baking season? I do!! Ok, here’s the thing, I love dessert, I love sweets, but that’s not all. I felt sort of stuck with the former blog. I wanted to be able to share all the things that interest me. I mean sure, my sweet tooth leads me to share a lot of baked goods, but I also love to cook, and sew, and knit, and garden. I’m a mom, my family is so important to me and I wanted to feel like I could share all of that here. So with that, I’m excited to share my new blog Live Everyday Fresh. The concept behind this is everyday is a new start. Be it with food, family, crafts, life. I’ve updated most of my social media sites, and will slowly be updating things on here as well. I could have waited and did a fancy unveil, but honestly, why wait? I was too excited and frankly missed posting here.
So now that I got all of that out of the way, I wanted to share a fun and easy treat. Honestly this treat is best consumed on any occasion, but let’s call them a fun and great holiday treat. I titled these “The Ultimate Rice Krispie Treat” mainly because they are seriously delicious and with the extra marshmallows tossed in, this treat is serious business. I wish I could say that I had the utmost self-control when I made these, but I didn’t. I ate more than I will willingly admit here, but I enjoyed every single one. I made these a while back and thought they would make the best treat for my son’s fourth birthday party. It takes no time to put them together.
The Ultimate Rice Krispie Treat
- Line a 9x13 inch baking dish with foil and spray with cooking spray. Set aside.
- In a large stockpot, melt butter and 16 cups of marshmallows over low heat. Stir until the mixture is smooth. Remove the pot from the heat and stir in the vanilla and salt. Stir in the Rice Krispies. Fold in the remaining 4 cups of marshmallows.
- Pour the mixture into the prepared baking dish. Flatten the mixture so that it spreads evenly throughout the baking dish. I found the easiest way to do this is to lightly spray a piece of parchment paper with cooking spray. Use that to gently push the mixture into the baking dish so that it evenly spreads throughout the baking dish.
- Let the mixture sit in the baking dish, at room temp, for 30 minutes. Once set, remove from the baking dish and peel back foil. Slice the treats into rectangles or squares. Enjoy!
