Yup... I'm apparently hard up for time or content because this, seriously, is today's "tip". I hope it benefits you greatly :)
When making Rice Krispie Treats... yes, this is about Rice Krispie Treats... the time will come to put them in the pan to cool, instead of using a spoon or buttered spatula, use a large piece of wax paper and press them down with your hands. You can make nice, dense treats that fit the pan perfectly.
And just in case you are now craving these dilectable treats you only need 1/4 cup butter, 3 cups mini marshmallows or a whole bag of big'uns, and 6 cups of Rice Krispies cereal on hand. If you have 5 minutes you could just get out a large saucepan or small soup pot, melt your butter, then add your marshmallows until melted, an then add your cereal and stir. Of course, you'll have to get a baking dish, 9x11 or 9x13 works just fine, grease it a little and use my handy-dandy tip above to get perfectly flat and sticky-free treats! I wouldn't even bother to let them cool but that's just me.
Have a fantastic day!!
