This recipe is from ricekrispies.com.  Everyone knows how to make these, right?  They don’t really even need a recipe.  However, I haven’t been able to eat these for years and years and years, since Rice Krispies® have had high fructose corn syrup in them until recently.  I actually saw an ad on the TV at the gym (of all places) announcing the Kellogg no longer uses HFCS in their “grain” cereals.  I rushed out to the store to see if this could possibly be true and came home with a box of Rice Krispies® and a bag of marshmallows.  I am a happy camper!
