Rice Krispie treats are a classic American dessert. Growing up in the U.S. this is something I often ate as a snack. My mom made them for me, and at school these would be made and sold at bake sales. No matter how many times I ate them, I never got tired of them. They are so yummy, and they are so easy to make. Perhaps the whole world knows about this recipe by now, but in case you don’t here it is. It is the recipe directly from the Kelloggs website.
One thing I must emphasize is to use quality ingredients. Generic brands of rice krispies can make the treats soggy, and margarine, can make the rice krispie treats seem too oily, and marshmallow fluff just makes them taste strange imo. Hope you enjoy these treats! :o) Recipe is below, and video on how to make them is here .
- 6 cups Kelloggs Rice Krispie Cereal
- 3 tbsp (42 grams) butter
- 1 package (10 oz.) marshmallows
- First, melt butter in a medium/large pot over a low heat.
- Next, add marshmallows to the melted butter, and stir until melted.
- Then, remove the pot from the heat, and stir in the rice krispies, one cup at a time.
- Grease, a 13 x 9 x 2 inch baking dish, and scoop out the rice krispie mixture into the baking dish.
- Gently press down the rice krispie mixture with a piece of parchment paper, until it fills out the pan, and feels firm.
- Cover with plastic wrap, and let the rice krispie treats cool.
- Once cooled, cut into squares, and serve.
