Rice Krispie Treats - Microwave Version! (Sugar Free Version)

There is something about Autumn that makes me want to make Rice Krispie Treats.  Because we are mostly sugar-free in our house, I don't use regular marshmallows, but I use La Nouba, Sugar Free, Fat Free Gluten Free marshmallows that I order online.  Obviously this is the recipe most people use regular store bought marshmallows in, so feel free to use whatever version you wish.

I also like to add some vanilla to mine, and top with sprinkles.  Clearly those two things are optional.

Rice Krispie Bars

3-5 T butter  (I don't measure, I just scoop 'about that much')
10 oz. package of regular sized marshmallows (about 40 if you count them) or 4 cups of mini sized
6 c Rice Krispies
Optional:  1 t vanilla, and sprinkles for top

In a very large plastic bowl sprayed with Pam or similar, place the marshmallows and butter.
Microwave this until the marshmallows are melted which means they puff up and are are about 3 times their normal size. They will be puffed up over the top of the bowl, very tall, reaching for the top of the microwave. This is about 2 minutes depending on your microwave. If you cook them longer they will get tough and make your bars rock hard! Remove them from the microwave and quickly pour in the cereal.
Stir with a rubber spatula/scraper that you have sprayed with Pam or other cooking spray.
Place in your prepared (sprayed) pan.  Press.  Sprinkle with sprinkles, mini chocolate chips, mini m&M's etc. if you wish.
