A good breakfast cannot take the place of the evening meal.

This week, Nanzaro wanted to make something for his brother’s birthday party and decided to make Rice Krispies Squares for him. We bought some “Christmas Special” package of Rice Krispies which comes with red and green rice krispies last Christmas and did not use it until now. Anyway, it makes very pretty Rice Krispies Squares, much better than the single brownish rice krispies.
- 1/4 cup margarine or butter
- 1 250g package regular marshmallows
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract (optional)
- 6 cups Rice Krispies cereal
|First of all Nanzaro melt the butter in the microwave for 30-60 seconds until the butter is melted. Nanzaro then added the marshmallows, and tossing it with a wooden spoon to coat the marshmallows with the melted butter. He returned the bowl to the microwave to melt the marshmallows for another 1-1.5 minutes. You know it’s ready when the mixture is smooth when stirred.
|Nanzaro then stirred in the vanilla extract for added flavour.
|Next, Nanzaro quickly added in the Rice Krispies cereals and stirred until they were all coated with the marshmallow mixture.The marshmallow will bind the Rice Krispies together. Nanzaro then poured the Rice Krispies mixture into a 13″ x 9″ buttered pan. He used a lightly buttered spatula to press the Rice Krispies firmly into the pan. The pan is then set aside to cool.
|Once it’s cooled, I helped Nanzaro to cut the Rice Krispies into squares for serving.Allie and Helen said that they tastes wonderful … the kids just ate them and said nothing!
