Mel’s Diner

Sharp Knives, Raw Meat and Fire


A couple of times in my blog postings, I’ve mentioned that I had nothing to post because I wasn’t making anything special enough to post about.  Often, that’s true, but equally as often, what I’m making is still pretty good and worthy of posting.  Case in point, my kicked-up Rice Krispie Treats.

Now, who doesn’t love these?  Sticky, marshmallow-y treats, all sweet and yummy?  I’m in the habit of kicking them up by adding additional cereals to the Rice Krispie’s, like Fruity Pebbles and Fruit Loops.  I once, in a Bart Simpson Squishy moment, made a treat with ALL Fruity Pebbles.  Let’s just say it was so sweet, I woke up with the same sugar hangover Bart did.  This one was pretty good, though:


  • 3 Tbls butter
  • 1 bag of marshmallows (about 11 oz.)
  • 4 cups of Rice Krispie Cereal
  • 3 cups of Fruit Loops

Spray an 8 X 8 or 11 x 7 pan with non-stick spray.  Gather the cereal in a large bowl, ready to add.  Melt the butter in a large pot.  When butter is melted, add marshmallows and stir to melt.  Once melted, quickly add to the cereal and stir to combine.  It’s going to come together quickly and mold into a huge ball around your spoon if you don’t get a move on!  Spoon into the prepared pan and wet you hands.  Push down and mold into the pan; it will be ready to cut in 15 minutes.
