Rice Krispies Treats

Shopping List
Stick margarine or peanut butter
Marshmallows
Wheat germ
Rice Krispies or Cheerios cereal
Ingredients
1/4 cup margarine or peanut butter
10 oz. pkg. regular marshmallows or 3 cups miniature marshmallows
1/2 cup wheat germ
6 cups Rice Krispies or Cheerios cereal
In a large saucepan, melt margarine or peanut butter over low heat. Add the marshmallows and continue to stir until the marshmallows have completely melted. Remove from heat. (Or, melt margarine and marshmallows in microwave.)
Stir in the Rice Krispies or Cheerios cereal coating well with the melted marshmallows mixture.

Using a buttered spatula, press the mixture evenly into a 13 x 9 x 2 inch pan which has been sprayed with non-stick spray.

Cut into squares when the mixture cools.

Makes 24 squares.

TIP: Wheat germ can be added in place of breadcrumbs in any recipe or added to most recipes for pancakes or baked goods. Use a vacuum packed brand, then refrigerate after opening.

Fast Fact:

By adding wheat germ to this gooey treat, it makes it a better choice by becoming a whole grain without changing the flavor!
