Rice Krispie squares

Can anyone provide a link to a recipe to make these? Please be kind, I'm a new baker and I'm starting out with baby steps. Cheers!

    Melted white chocolate over puffed brown rice, nuts or dried fruit added at will.

        I'm guessing that you're Canadian, since you called them "Rice Krispie Squares" instead of "Rice Krispie Treats". The recipe on the Canadian site is a bit more rich, as well, though there's no real way to screw up. http://www.ricekrispies.ca/cgi-bin/rk...

        My mum always made Chocolate Rice Krispie Squares for me, since I'm more of a chocolate freak than a marshmallow freak. There were no marshmallows in them...

          We would have puffed wheat squares. They had no marshmallows and a nice chocolaty syrupy goo that held it all together. Does anybody have a recipe for puffed wheat squares, by the way? I miss them.

            Actually the US and Canadian recipes are exactly the same.

            Except for the flavour ; )

                The one on the US site calls for 3 TBSP margarine and the Canadian one calls for 1/4 cup. More marshmallows, too, but the same amount of cereal.

              Great place to start. Everyone loves them, and once you get the knack you can gussy them up all sorts of neat ways.

                You can always use Google to find almost anything (oh and the recipe is also on the box).


                And you'll discover, there's no baking involved with Rice Krispie treats... just melting, mixing and waiting.

                  The BEST recipe I ever saw for Rice Crispie Treats was on FoodTV.com (search for Alton Brown and Rice Crispie Treats). He made them with puffed brown rice, and sliced almonds, and dried cranberries. Those sound soooo much better than the usual....

                  And don't forget to add a cup or so of chocolate chips as soon as the rice crispies are mixed with the marshmellows!
