One of my all time favorite sweet treats is a homemade Rice Krispie Treat…they’re right up there with homemade Chocolate Chip cookies! 🍪
I love these ooey gooey treats not just for the taste, but because they are so easy to “spice up”! You can toss in your favorite candy or cereal. You can add caramel or chocolate, sprinkles or frosting. The possibilities are endless!
Here, I will post my PERFECT recipe that I use at home, and then you can decide what you’d like to add, or if you’re happy with the original, enjoy as is!
Ingredients you will need…
6 cup of Rice Krispies Cereal
10 cups of small Marshmallows
5 TBS of Butter
A pinch of salt
Have a pan set aside, sprayed down with cooking spray…
In a pot on the stove, heat the butter until melted, on LOW heat. You don’t want it any hotter than “3” on LOW on your stove.
Once the butter is melted, slowly stir in 8 of the cups of marshmallows! Leave 2 cups aside.
Stir until JUST melted. Not too cooked.
Once your marshmallows are just melted (see above), remove the pot from the heat, add your pinch of salt, and slowly stir the salt and 6 cups of Rice Krispie together.
Stir gently until all is covered well.
Now slowly mix in the last 2 cups of small marshmallows.
Once mixed, place in the pan you had to the side, press the Rice Krispie mixture flat, and cool!
Now you’re ready to cut them into any shape and add all kinds of goodies! ❤️
