Butter or margarine for Rice Krispies Treats??
My mom always used Nucoa when making Rice Krispies Treats and I've followed suit. I noticed years ago that the amount of the margarine changed from 4 T down to 3 T. I still use 4 T--why mess with T&T for the sake of a few calories etc, because I don't make these all that often.
Does anyone make these with butter? Do you use 3 T or 4 T ? How does it compare with using margarine?
As a side topic, I made some tonight and added one half cup of Nutella just as the mini marshmallows were getting all melty in the margarine. Now mind you, hubby is not fond of chocolate (except sometimes) and only likes peanuts. When we first married, he would only eat five vegetables--thankfully, he's expanded a bit on that over the last 30 years!
Anyway, he likes the Nutella Rice Krispies Treats and has gone back for more at least 3 times. I believe part of that is because I hid the Nutella jar, did NOT tell him what I used in it, and just said it was a new recipe with a tiny bit of chocolate in it (shhhhh!).
