    I need a great home-made organic recipe for rice crispy treats. My kids just love them!

    The basic ingredients are: rice crispy cereal, butter, marshmallows. I know that you can find the first two in your local organic food store. Never saw marshmallows there, but I wasn't really looking for them.

    If you are wanting to 100 percent from scratch/home, I'd have no idea how to make the cereal. But, it looks like it MIGHT be able to be done? How to make homemade puff cereal w/ wheats and grains like barley, kamut, millet, quinoa, etc? - Yahoo! Answers

    There are many recipes on the internet for making your own marshmallows - here's just one...
    You, too, can make homemade marshmallows - Slashfood

    And butter would be the easiest part of all if you have your own cows.

    If you really want the optimum health for your children, buy Kosher marshmallows, they use vegetable gelatin instead of Pork based gelatin.
    I choose to eat Pork, and found out that it was the main ingredient in about 90% of all gelatin.
    Most non pork gelatin is vegan, some is Bovine.
    Love them babies. Feed then right!!!!

    Sorry for the typo, my last post should have read: I choose to "NOT" eat pork.
