Healthy Picnic Treat

It’s great going to picnics and cook-outs to enjoy the nice weather outdoors and good friends.  I do always ponder over what to make that is quick, simple, and low cal.  Then I remembered the old “Rice Krispie Treat”.  It only requires 3 ingredients, takes 5 minutes to make, and is low cal.

  • 3 Tbsp. Light Margarine.
  • 4 Cups mini marshmallows
  • 6 Cups Rice Krispie Cereal

Melt margarine and marshmallow over low heat.  Stir in cereal.  Spread in 9″ x 11″ pan sprayed with cooking spray.  Makes 20 squares.
