Whenever we post a fun Rice Krispie Treat dessert, we get a ton of questions about how to make the perfect Rice Krispie Treat. While I’m not a Rice Krispie Treat expert, I feel like I am definitely ready to turn pro. I’m just waiting for a big signing bonus from one of the top schools. Here is my doctored recipe and tips for whipping up the perfect Rice Krispie Treat. (And you can do it in less than 15 minutes!)
How to Make the Best Ever Rice Krispie Treat Recipe
You will need:
- Rice Krispie Cereal
- Mini Marshmallows
- Butter (We used Sweet Cream Salted Butter)
Melt 6 tablespoons of butter in a medium sauce pan on medium heat. We like soft and buttery Rice Krispie Treats so we use more butter in our recipe than most other recipes out there. Trust us, it makes a difference in the taste.
Add 6 cups of Mini Marshmallows to the melted butter.
Stir the marshmallows until they are completely melted. Turn off the heat when the marshmallows are melted. If you are going to color the Rice Krispie Treats this is when you should add the food coloring.
Add 6 cups of Rice Krispie Cereal to the marshmallow mixture
Fold the Rice Krispie Cereal into the marshmallow mixture until the cereal is completely covered.
Spoon the Rice Krispie Treat mixture into a shallow 9×11″ pan. You don’t need to grease the pan, the butter in the Rice Krispie Treats will allow the squares to easily release from the pan.
Press the Rice Krisipe Treat mixture into the pan.
Let the Rice Krispie Treats cool and then cut them into squares. That’s it so very easy. You’ll be done in less than 15 minutes!
