Make some melt-in-our-mouth rice krispy treat bars using this recipe.  People will wonder why they are so delicious.  My roommate made these in college years ago and I wondered why hers were so much better than the ones I always made.  Her secret, A WHOLE STICK OF BUTTER.  Yes, instead of just three tablespoons, use a whole stick.  No one will complain, I promise.  I’m sure just double the butter would work, but I like it this way.

The Best Rice Krispy Treats Ever

1 stick of butter (I prefer salted for this recipe)
1 bag of mini marshmallows, about 10 oz (they melt faster)
6 1/2 cups Crispy Rice Cereal (any brand works)

Put your butter in a large saucepan on low until it melts.  Add the marshmallows and stir on low.  Pour in the cereal.  Sometimes I add more cereal if I want the treats crispier.  You can easily double this dessert and pour into a half sheet jelly roll pan.  I always have these ingredients on hand just in case I have only 5 minutes to make dessert.
