Rice Krispies Treats

1 stick( 4 ounces) Butter or Margarine
1 package, 10 - 16 ounces mini marshmallows
6 to 8 cups Rice Krispies

Prepare your 13x9 inch pan with butter or a non-stick spray.

In a large saucepan or Dutch oven, melt the butter over low heat, stir it around to coat the pot. When it is melted, add the marshmallows, and melt slowly over a low heat. You may want to stir constantly, it can scorch very easily. When melted, stir in the rice krispies and stir with a large spatula. Be sure to get to the bottom. Then stir. "Pour" into the pan You may need to re-apply the spray. Let firm up and cut.

Peanut Butter Krispie treats: add 1 cup peanut butter with the marshmallow and melt.

Chocolate Krispies: use Cocoa Krispies

Chocolate chip: add 1 bag mini or regular semi-sweet chips(chilled) with the krispies. They will probably melt a little with the heat.
