Collegiate Rice Krispie Treats

Tailgating is one of my favorite activities.  After loading up on salty foods like hot dogs, cheeseburgers, chips, etc I’m always looking for a sweet treat.  You certainly can’t go wrong with Rice Krispie Treats!  They are quick and easy to make.  I added food coloring to each batch for Florida Gator team colors – blue and orange.  CHOMP!

1.  First, spray the entire inside of your pot with cooking spray so the marshmallow doesn’t stick to it.  Then melt 3 tablespoons of butter or margarine.

2.  Add one 10 oz. package of regular-sized marshmallows over low heat until they are completely melted.  Be sure to also spray your mixing spoon with cooking spray or you WILL have a mess on your hands!

3. Add food coloring if you so desire.  I added red & yellow to the first batch and several drops of blue to the other batch.  Looking back I would have added more blue knowing now that the yellow hue of the rice krispies made them look a little green.  (Boooo!)

4. Add 6 cups of Rice Krispies and stir until they are completely covered by marshmallow.

5.  Voilà!  Pour each batch into a 9×13 pan and let them cool.  To make them fill the pan neatly and evenly, spray your hand with cooking spray and pat them down.
