These really are good and are what my 4yo and I made together to leave for Santa -less ingredients than the traditional "cookie" recipe. He can stir the rice crispies while they're in a bowl and then in the blend after I turn the heat off and hold the pot until it gets too hard. He can also put sprinkles on/in them. Through trial and error I have found: use real butter if possible and the vanilla is a must (if you like it). Use fresh mini marshmallows (on my first go I used the larger ones that were a little old- which lead them to take longer to melt and the blend started to lightly burn; so I threw it out.) Keep stirring while they're melting! You can also put water, non-stick spray or a little butter on your hands to keep your hands from sticking when pressing it down. It's a great treat/base recipe to make treat bars, where you can add whatever else strikes your fancy: nuts, chocolate chipes, etc. I'm going to try some different dried fruit in it eventually :0)
