    I know Rice Krispies are a pretty basic treat that everyone knows how to make... BUT I appreciate the fact that you included the mini marshmallow and the large marshmallow recipe! Now I'll never have to stop to figure it out! THANKS!
  2. I have found that taking the marshmallows off the heat just as they start to stick together works better. I then continue mixing them until they are melted, but off of the heat. By doing that, they will stay soft for days! When I melt them all the way on the heat, they tend to get hard.
