Recipe: Rice Krispy Treats

I have been seeing this in all my magazines and had been wanting to try them . . . Gregory can have rice crispy treats made with Blue Bonnet Light Margarine. So, I knew he could have these if I used the chocolate chips he can have which are the Ghirardelli Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips. They didn't turn out very well. I think when you use that margarine instead of butter they just are more "flat". There was no way I could stick a popcicle stick in one. No room. So, I had already melted the chocolate so I just drizzled it all over the squares. They were okay. Gregory liked them which is all that matters! Brought them to his cousin Scout's birthday party. Got to start doing those sort of things now that he notices he can't have the birthday cake. Even though family is so good about having something there for him. His Aunt Heather made sure she had some yummy raspberry sorbet on hand! Thanks Auntie!

    Why use Kellogg's® Rice Krispies®?

    As the first crisped rice cereal, Kellogg’s® Rice Krispies® has been bringing families together in the kitchen for over 80 years.
    To experience the timeless flavor, make your Rice Krispies Treats® squares with the original Rice Krispies® brand cereal.

2. Using buttered spatula or wax paper, evenly press mixture into 13 x 9 x 2-inch pan coated with cooking spray. Cool. Cut into eighteen 3 x 2-inch bars. Push one stick into the bottom of each bar.

3. In small microwave-safe bowl combine chocolate morsels and oil. Microwave on high for 1 to 1 1/2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds. Dip bars into chocolate and decorate as you like. Place on wax paper lined baking sheet. Refrigerate until chocolate is set. Best if served the same day.

MICROWAVE DIRECTIONS: In microwave-safe bowl heat butter and marshmallows on HIGH for 3 minutes, stirring after 2 minutes. Stir until smooth. Follow steps 2 and 3 above. Microwave cooking times may vary.
