Marshmallow Treats - Scotch Treats

Yeah, I know - everyone has this recipe. But it passes the "down-to-earth" test - not many ingredients, easy to make. So here's the original along with a tasty variation. And the variation is vegan! Enjoy!


  • ¼ Cup Butter
  • 5 Cups Rice Krispies
  • 10 Ounces Marshmallows


  1. Place cereal in large bowl. 
  2. Microwave margarine in medium, microwave-safe bowl on high power for 30 seconds. Add marshmallows and microwave an additional 30 seconds - 1 minute; just until completely melted. Stir.
  3. Pour over cereal; stir until well coated. 
  4. Press mixture into buttered 13"x9"x2" pan. Cut into squares when cool.

VARIATION: For Scotch Treats substitute 1/2 cup peanut butter for the butter. Substitute 12 ounces butterscotch chips for the marshmallows. Follow the directions for the original. When complete, chill a few minutes until firm.
