I feel like rice crispy treats are a staple across the USA. Everyone has their own favorite recipe and if you don’t then there is always the store bought prepackaged ones. However, I have a few tricks up my sleeve to make those gooey yet crunchy treats even better!
Rice Krispie Treats
Crispy gooey and delicious! Gone are the days of buying these at checkout. This will become one of your favorites quickly!
Prep Time- 20 minutes
Servings- 8 people
6 1/2 cups mini marshmellows
6 cups rice krispies cereal
8 tbsp butter unsalted
1 tsp vanilla extract
In a large sauce pan over medium heat, melt 8 tbsp of butter.
Once butter is melted, add 5 cups of mini marshmallows. Mix constantly until fully combined.
Then, add vanilla extract. Mix until combined and remove from heat.
Add in 6 cups of rice krispies cereal and 1 cup of mini marshmallows. Mix thoroughly.
Transfer to a baking dish lined with parchment paper. Spread out evenly pressing down just enough to form. This step is very important and will lead to crispy and gooey treats!
In a small microwave safe bowl, add remaining 1/2 cup of mini marshmallows. Microwave in 5 second intervals until smooth. Drizzle over rice krispie treats and let cool.
Cut and enjoy!
