How to Make Rice Krispie Cupcake Treats


  1. Prepare a 12 cup muffin tin , by heavily buttering bottom and sides; set aside.
    Combine butter, and mini marshmallows in a saucepan over medium heat stirring until blended and smooth. Stir in vanilla.
  2. Remove from heat.
    Place the rice krispies in a large buttered bowl; quickly pour marshmallow mixture over rice krispies and stir gently with a large buttered wooden spoon or with buttered hands- being careful - of the hot marshmallow mixture.
  3. Place the mixture evenly into the muffin cups and chill for 10 minutes.
    I find it is easier to empty the can of frosting into a bowl and then add the powdered mixture to that. Stir well until completely blended.
    Place frosting in decorator bag fitted with star point or just put in a plastic bag and cut a small hole in one corner and squeeze frosting onto little cakes. Enjoy! Kids will love these... of course they will lick the frosting off first! LOL
