Description

The Perfect Rice Krispie Treats Recipe is loaded with just the right amount of Rice Krispies cereal and gooey, melty marshmallows, for perfect, bakery-style crispy treats!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 5 tablespoons butter
  • 8 cups, plus 2 cups mini marshmallows
  • 6 cups Krispie Cereal
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt (optional)

Instructions

  1. Line a 9×9 pan with foil and spray lightly with cooking spray, set aside.
  2. In a large pot over low heat melt butter. Once butter s melted add in 8 cups of mini marshmallows, stirring constantly.
  3. Once the marshmallows are just melted remove from heat and stir in your cereal and salt until just coated in the marshmallow mixture. Now stir in the remaining 2 cups of mini marshmallows.
  4. Pour mixture into prepared pan and press in evenly.
  5. Allow to cool completely before cutting into squares.

Notes

  • To store. You can store your rice krispie treats airtight at room temperature for up to 3 days, but I always prefer krispie treats the same day they were made!
  • To freeze. While I don’t usually recommend it, if you’re desperate, you can store rice krispie treats in the freezer. Wrap them up tightly in plastic wrap, or seal them in freezer bags or in an airtight container to store. Thaw the treats at room temperature before serving.
