So, I really love rice krispie squares! I'm not 100% sure why, but just the combo of mallows, butter and rice cereal do it for me!
For years though, I honestly could not make a batch of rice krispie squares properly! They always turned out too hard! Fail! So, I basically gave up, and resorted to (secretly) eating too many of them at any child's party we were invited to.
Then, one night, I just really wanted/needed me a rice krispie square!
I had been experimenting with all sorts of one portioned micro-wave cakes and cookies, and just figured I would try a rice krispie treat for myself! The best part (besides it working!)? was that I just ate 'er right out of the bowl....warm. Yummm.....
Rice Krispie Treat for One
*The amounts really are pretty flexible, and this can be made to suit if you'd prefer it more buttery, more mallowy, or more cereal-y : )
For real, why would you now go through the trouble of pressing this into some other dish, and waiting for it to cool before you can eat it. That's nonsense! :)
I like to add chocolate chips to mine because I like to add chocolate to most things!
Someday, when my kids are old enough, I will teach them how to make this as an easy treat they can make on their own. And I'll just tell myself I'm practicing for that moment from now until then if I feel guilty about making this for myself!
P.S. the key to the best rice krispie treats? Butter! If you use too little, the squares will be dry, dry dry! Thumbs down! To see my many rice krispie inspired treats, look here!
