Grandma's Rice Krispies Treats

Posted by Donna:

I came to a conclusion today about these treats. Lori e-mailed me last night and said Joe, our son-in-law, and Zachary, our oldest grandson, thought "Grandma" made the best ever Rice Krispies Treats. Zachary tells me this a lot. I began to wonder what I do differently.

Since this is not "my" original recipe----- it is Kellogg's----- and since I follow the directions exactly by what's written on the box--I don't "play" with the recipe---- and since I'm pretty sure Lori follows the very same recipe--it's pretty obvious what makes "Grandma's" special!!!!

I think when "Grandmas" make treats for their families ,a very special ingredient is added automatically!!!!! I think it's a grandma's "love"! Mothers add this all the time, but this is different---only grandmas know about it.

So; when someone tells you that what you have made is the "best ever," just tell them it has a big ole' heapin' spoonful of Grandma's love in it!!!!!!!

That's my conclusion---and I'm stickin' to it!!!!! Pin It Now!

I'm sure that is it!!! Actually, I don't use a recipe....just pour til it looks good!!! (ha ha!) Maybe I SHOULD follow the recipe. I think it's that you always use the named ingredients (Kraft Marshmallows, Kellogg's Rice Krispies, then the butter/margarine that you use would make it taste a certain way, too. I vary on that part, but usually use real butter. I think a lot of people use off brands for their krispies and it's not as good.

You two are funny! I'm sure using name brand ingredients is a little better! So I'm wondering if you smash them down in the pan or just spoon it in lightly?

I do both--spoon lightly--then smash down--- and I do use butter.

I do enjoy making these because I know the kids love them---especially Z!!!!!! They don't last very long.
