Watch out Rice Krispies these Special K cereal treats are delicious! I like to make them when the cereal goes on sale. They have a caramel marshmallow flavor and I love to eat them when they're still a little warm and gooey. Be careful because they are addicting and not so great for the waistline.
1 c butter
1/2 c sugar
1/4 c brown sugar
3 c miniature marshmallows
1 tsp vanilla
6 c original Special K cereal
1/2 c chopped pecans or pecan chips
On the stove over low heat in a large pot melt and stir together butter, sugar, brown sugar, and marshmallows. Stir constantly while mixture boils at a low temperature for 3 minutes. Remove from heat and add vanilla. Stir in the cereal coating it evenly with marshmallow mixture. Mix in the pecans. Drop spoonfuls on wax paper and let the treats cool.
