My parents were strict on what kind of sweets I could eat, but for some reason rice krispies and oatmeal cookies didn’t fall into that category. I’m thinking it’s because my grandma made the cookies and rice krispies and she always substituted most of the ingredients with something healthier…at least for the cookies.
As I was making rice krispies, I was thinking about how awesome my childhood was. I was not allowed to watch TV during the weekdays and only on the weekends I could watch one movie. However my brother, sister, and I must agree on what movie. So most of my childhood was spent playing outside, thankfully our house had a gigantic front and background, so my imagination was so vivid and creative. So whenever my grandma called us in for dinner, she usually had oatmeal cookies or rice krispies.
I hope you guys enjoy this recipe, it brought back many memories of my dear grandma!
- ¼ cup butter (half stick)
- 4 cups mini marshmallows
- 5-7 cups rice krispies
- In a saucepan melt butter, then add marshmallows and cook until marshmallows are melted.
- In a large bowl, oil or spray bowl, add the melted marshmallows, and add 5 cups of rice krispies and mix. Slowly add 2 more cups if needed.
- Spray hands and plastic eggs then add rice krispies to the eggs. Make sure to stuff the rice krispies in the eggs so it will take the form of the egg.
