Discover how to make rice crispy treats with the basic recipe, plus a lot of different ways for varying the recipe with different flavors and enhancements. You'll find seasonal treats for Valentine's Day, Easter, Mother's Day, football season, Halloween and Christmas.

Although the directions for most of these recipes specify using the... stove, you can just as easily use the microwave for the recipes that call for marshmallows and butter. Simply place the butter and marshmallows in a large, microwave-safe bowl, and heat on high for 2-3 minutes. When the marshmallows are melted, proceed with the rest of the recipe as written.
