Operation Baking Gals Mission #2 Rice Krispies Treats

>> Tuesday, August 26, 2008

Who wants Rice Krispies Treats? Well, it doesn't really matter who wants 'em - they're going to a group of soldiers stationed in Mosul.



I made three batches; 2 plain and 1 peanut butter. The plain recipe is here at the official Kellogg's site and the peanut butter one is here at Christmas-Cookies.com. The idea to do Rice Krispies Treats came from a list of recipes for treats that "travel well" that I found here at Baking Delights.

The only changes I made were to use an 8x8 pan for thicker treats and I doubled the amount of peanut butter in the second recipe. In hindsight I wish I had tripled it - was really hoping for a more intense PB flavor. Also, if you decide to use this recipe be sure to check the weight of your bag of marshmallows - mine was a full pound!

I love rice crispy treats. I used to beg my mom to make these for me. I think that I was the only one in the family so we never had them.

Needless to say when I moved out I made myself sick by eating almost the whole batch before they were cooled.

I think I'll teach my son to make these! With peanut butter.

I think you guys are so cool for doing this! And who wouldn't love to get some Rice Crispy Treats! But Peanut Butter Rice Crispy Treats? Oh my!

A better question is, "Who doesn't want rice krispy treats?"

Okay, I had to comment on this one, too. Do you think we could start a subversive baker's group that sent treats to Russia? Not because we aren't patriotic, but because they're really starting to piss me off and I feel like fattening American baked goods might make them less proliferatory (made-up word), or, at the very least, too fat to talk shit.

Sometimes I steal all of the world's commas for the day and use them in a single sentence, leaving the rest of the planet frantically trying to amend run-on sentences. At least, that's how it'd be if Americans were as good at English as I'd like. And they aren't.

Also, how come Rice Krispy treats are way gooier and more delicious when they come from either a)Noodles and Co. or b)a grade school cafeteria. Is it the archaic use of lead-based margarine? Or is it just that both N&CO and lunchladies love us and want us to be happy? Food for thought.

Hi Lisa - Your rice krispie treats look great! I didn't post a photo on my blog, but I managed to link right to this post, (believe it or not) from my blog! I'm such a newbie to this, but I do know enough not to put a photo up from another site without permission. So, if you want your photo up, just send it to me or let me know and I'll grab it :)

Lisa,

I was on the same team with you for baking GALS and followed the link to your blog. I love it!!! I was browsing through all your curries and sushi. They all look so beautiful and delicious. It looks like we like to cook some of the same types of food.

Thanks for sharing!!
