Had a late-night brain flash and decided to lift the parchment out of the pan, put another layer on top and use my food scissors to cut right through - worked a treat!

A note on shaping: when we make Rice Krispie Treats, we forgo the pan altogether. We use either parchment paper or wax paper, spoon the hot mixture in a mound onto the paper, let it cool for a couple of seconds while we butter our hands, and then gently spread by hand, forming whatever shape we please -- one large heart, rectangle, triangle, etc. It's messy and fun and delicious, and there is no clean up of a pan.

Thanks!
I just dug up this one:
http://www.cookingforengineers.com/recipe/104/Kelloggs-Rice-Krispies-Treats
basically the same, but I love the "for engineers" aspect!
Any hints on cutting the treats or even for getting them out of the pan?
I just tried the parchment paper liner as suggested in this recipe, I'll let you know if it worked for me ....

Here is the recipe with both stove top and microwave directions.

3 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 package (10 oz., about 40) regular marshmallows
- OR -
4 cups miniature marshmallows
6 cups Rice Krispies®

1. In large saucepan melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat.

2. Add KELLOGG'S RICE KRISPIES cereal. Stir until well coated.

3. Using buttered spatula or wax paper evenly press mixture into 13 x 9 x 2-inch pan coated with cooking spray. Cool. Cut into 2-inch squares. Best if served the same day.


MICROWAVE DIRECTIONS:
In microwave-safe bowl heat butter and marshmallows on HIGH for 3 minutes, stirring after 2 minutes. Stir until smooth. Follow steps 2 and 3 above. Microwave cooking times may vary.
