Rice Chex Krispy Treats

Rice Chex and Rice Krispies taste the same, but the Rice Chex are more substantial and the Rice Krispies are lighter. We like to add a little more butter to the marshmallows.  Sometimes we add more cereal and pour the mixture in a buttered jelly roll pan. Though I have included the recipe and directions, it is really it's up to you, just do the amounts that you like best and enjoy!
Ingredients
6 T. Butter
14 oz Marshmallow Cream or 40-60 Lg. Marshmallows
8 C. Rice Chex or Rice Krispies Cereal
Directions
Butter a 9x13 pan and set aside.
Melt Butter in large pot on medium heat and immediately add marshmallows.
When marshmallows are melted and mixed thoroughly with butter; add rice cereal while stirring.
When thoroughly mixed, and rice cereal is coated, pour and spread in buttered 9x13 pan and let cool.
Optional
* Spread chocolate chips over hot crispy treats in pan and allow to melt and then spread more thoroughly.
* Sprinkle top of cooling treats with sprinkles (tiny colored sprinkles that are usually sprinkled on cup cakes and cookies.).
* When mixing the cereal and marshmallow mixture one can substitute chopped nuts for some of the cereal and after pressing into the cooling pan, the mixture can be sprinkled with mini M&Ms or Reese's Pieces. 
* Coconut can be added into the treats or one can top the warm treats with chocolate chips and sprinkle coconut over the top.

Note For a Smaller Batch

Ingredients
1/4 C. butter
10 oz of Marshmallow cream or 40 Lg. marshmallow
