Gooey Rice Krispies Treats

I love it when Homer Simpson finds goo and says, " goo."

For the last few weeks the topic of conversation with my youngest son has been the STAAR test (public school state test).  We've been stressing how important it is for him to pay attention and stop daydreaming.
In order to help with his ADHD I banned junk food and foods with red, blue and yellow dyes and made sure he was taking his fish oils.  It was hard.
Now that 2 of the 4 tests are over I  decided to make a treat for my boys.  Something quick and easy that they both liked.  Gooey Rice Krispies Treats.  My son always asks "Are you going to put the extra marshmallows in?"  Why YES of course, dearie.

For the most part I follow the regular recipe except I add an extra tablespoon of butter and add extra marshmallows at the end.

4 Tablespoons of Butter (NEVER margarine)
1 Package 10 oz marshmallows or 4 cups AND an extra 1-3 cups marshmallows
6 cups Rice Krispies cereal

Melt butter in a large saucepan over low heat. Add 4 cups or 10 oz marshmallows and stir until completely melted.  Remove from heat. Mix in cereal. Stir until well coated.  Add 1 to 3 cups marshmallows and stir again.  Spread the mixture using a buttered spatula or waxed paper evenly into a 13x9x2 inch pan coated with cooking spray or butter. Allow to cool 10 minutes before cutting the squares.

I normally add more marshmallows that this but this is all I had.  The amount of extra marshmallows you put in is entirely up to personal taste.

Yummy, gooey.
