Cereal treats can be quite messy to make, especially when you are pressing them into the pan. The next time you make cereal treats, put a sandwich bag over your hand and spray it with non-stick spray. Now when you press the treats down they won't stick to you or the baggie.
I have been making rice crispies treats a long time. This morning (it's 5 a.m. here) was no exception. I melted the butter, put the marshmallows in, let them melt. In the meantime I poured the rice crispies into a metal bowl and set aside. I stirred the marshmallows until melted and than here's what I did different. I poured the melted marshmallow/butter mixture over the top of the rice crispies that were in the metal bowl.
