Special K Treats and The Ultimate Super Bowl Party Recipe Smack Down

by Laura

This is a quick and easy treat that I like to make my kids. It makes a great after school snack. I got this recipe from a friend years ago. It kind of has the flavor of a rice crispy treat with a caramel twist. Yummy! I am also entering this recipe for The Ultimate Super Bowl Party Recipe Smack Down contest on Recipe Girl. That’s your super bowl dessert. I am also entering the recipes that I have on here for Crock Pot Southwestern Chicken Nachos and Slow Cooker Beef Fajitas. Now are you ready for some football? Personally I can do without the football, but I love the food!

Special K Treats
2 squares (1 cup) of margarine (I use butter)
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
2 cups miniature marshmallows
6 cups Special K cereal (can also use cornflakes)
Stir all ingredients in a large sauce pan until they boil. Turn heat down and boil for 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and gently mix in cereal. Spoon onto wax paper and cool.

Has anyone tried these without the sugar and brown sugar? Like rice Krispy treats?

Hey! This post could not be written any better! Reading this post reminds me of my previous room mate! He always kept chatting about this. I will forward this write-up to him. Fairly certain he will have a good read. Many thanks for sharing!

I love these, it is great to add some mixed nuts in them to for a little variety!

Looks yummy! One question, how much exactly is a “square” of butter? Is that a Tablespoon?

These look good! I have made them before but instead of special K, I used Cheerios.
