    Your website is driving me nuts! All I want is a basic Rice Krispy Treat recipe. You have it hidden somewhere in your website and I can’t find it. I clicked on the hyperlink and it brought me to a page ( ) but no recipe is there. There IS something that says [amd-zlrecipe-recipe:223].

    Anyway, I know it’s just Krispys, butter, and marshmallows…. just don’t know the ratios.

    I have no idea how you used a 9×9 pan for this. I used a jelly roll pan and the mixture was the same depth as my regular cookie cutter.
