Rice Crispie Treats

I made these for the staff at work when it was my turn to serve a Treat Day.  I love these homemade squares way better than those that come pre-packaged at the store.  These are super easy to make and they keep for weeks if you wrap them tightly or keep them in Tupperware.  The best thing is that you don't have to turn on your oven in the humidity this summer and kids (and adults too) love them!!!

First, you take a tablespoon of butter to a large pot and melt it.

Then, add your package of marshmallows and keep stirring until they are melted. 

Then add a teaspoon of vanilla extract.

Add 6 cups of Rice Krispies and stir it up until all the cereal is coated with marshmallow goo.  Lay the "batter" out onto parchment paper and flatten it with your hands.

Let it cool at least 10 minutes in the fridge or in a cold room.  Once it's hardened a little, you can cut it up into squares.  I like to put sprinkles on my rice crispie treats, but you can leave them plain if you like.
