  1. Toss in some raisins, or chocolate bits, cut up bits of gum drops, or your choice of flavorings (coconut, maple, etc.).
    Form the mixture into various animal forms before they cool (you can also use food coloring for this type of project).

        I liked puffed wheat squares more than rice krispie squares.. they're softer and easier to eat. Yumm...

      2. huge fan of the brown butter salted rice krispy treats from smitten kitchen.

        1. Chocolate chips or peanut butter

          1. I think the recipe is called Scotcheroos. Peanut butter is mixed into the corn syrup mix before rice crispies are added. After pressing into pan, a mix of 1/2 bag each milk chocolate and butterscotch pieces melted together and mixed is spread over the crispies. My husband likes dark chocolate so now I use the dark chocolate bits instead of the mix.

                corn syrup mix? I just use marshmallows and butter.

                  I'm still curious about the corn syrup mixture.

                    The Scotcheroos recipe does not include marshmallows. It uses a combination of sugar and corn syrup instead.
