The Rice Krispie Treats recipe here lists, "4 cups (1 lb bag) of rice krispie or similar cereal"

4 cups of Rice krispies weighs about 4 ounces, not a pound (16 ounces).
A one pound bag of this cereal actually contains about 16 cups. That's a huge difference!

So, for those who make this recipe, do I use 4 cups of cereal or the full bag (16 cups)

I asked this question in the comments of the recipe itself, but realize that no one will see my comments unless they randomly happen to look at the recipe.

I use the same recipe as kraziboutkakes, except that I put a sheet of parchment paper down in the pan (large enough to cover the bottom & sides). The recipe works great, and I have very little clean up - HTH!

Thanks! The recipe I was referring to is, oddly, the only RKT recipe I can find on CC.


Strangely it has 9.1 out of 10 stars rated by 20 users. Really?! 20 users used this recipe with such a giant flaw in the measurements and gave it 9 stars!???! really? a difference of a good 10 cups of cereal, one way or the other, and everyone gives it 9 stars?

Good grief the heat must be getting to me. Anyway, thanks for the new recipe. I couldn't find mine.
