Marshmallow Crispies

Happy Fourth of July!

The earliest recipe I can find for these is from grocery ads in late 1940, like this example from the December 6, 1940 edition of The Ogden (Utah) Standard-Examiner:

Rice Krispies Marshmallow Squares

1/2 cup butter
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 lb. marshmallows (about 30)
1 pkg. Kellogg’s Rice Krispies (5-1/2 oz.)

Melt butter and marshmallows in double boiler. Add vanilla; beat well. Put Rice Krispies in large buttered bowl and pour on marshmallow mixture. Press into shallow buttered pan. Cut into squares.

Yield: 16 2-1/2-inch squares (10 x 10 inch pan.)

Note: nut meats and coconut may be added.

From a box sold in East Moline, Illinois.
