Fat Free Rice Krispy Treats

You can find krispy treats in bodegas all over NYC, but a lot of them are just terrible. Some are over sweetened and taste like they've been sitting on the shelves for months. There is only one kind I trust, but they are kind of hard to find so I wanted to try making them at home. Here's the recipe:
6 cups Rick Krispies Cereal
One 10 oz. bag miniature Marshmallows
1/4 c Light corn syrup
Lightly spray a 9" x 13" pan with PAM. Measure out cereal. Pour corn syrup into a large pot placed on medium heat. When the syrup has warmed up a bit, add the marshmallows. Continue to heat, stirring frequently, until the marshmallows are melted and smooth. Add cereal, stirring with a large spoon until the cereal is uniformly coated. I would thrown in a few whole marshmallows too.
Turn out into prepared pan. Cover cereal mixture with waxed paper, and using hands, spread and press the cereal evenly in the pan, compressing firmly. Allow the treats to cool for 5 minutes or so before removing the waxed paper. After the pan has cooled, cut into squares using a sharp knife dipped in hot water.
