Eat Drink SETX Recipe Modifications:

  • Does your SETX family love chocolate? Mix it up, substituting Cocoa Krispies for Rice Krispies.
  • Is Fruity Pebbles a favorite in your house? Ours to. Try the recipe with Fruity Pebbles instead of Rice Krispies.
  • You can also change out the decorations. Leave off the icing and candy and try sprinkles or your family’s favorites.
  • Try some without the icing and candy – Rice Krispie Treats are pretty tasty on your own.

MICROWAVE DIRECTIONS: In microwave-safe bowl heat butter and marshmallows on HIGH for 3 minutes, stirring after 2 minutes. Stir until smooth. Follow steps 2 through 3 above. Microwave cooking times may vary.
