How To Make The Best Rice Krispie Treats
Normal Start – Traditionally, Rice Krispies are made by mixing melted butter, marshmallows, and Rice Krispie cereal and this recipe is no different. You’ll melt the butter in the pan like you normally do and then add in the mini marshmallows.
Secret Ingredient – The secret to THESE delicious little treats is the addition of marshmallow cream! You’ll only need 1/2 cup and you’ll add it to the pot when you add in the marshmallows. The marshmallow cream makes these Rice Krispie treats the chewiest, softest and most delicious you’ll ever eat! I promise you’ll never go back to making these treats in any other way!
Classic Finish – Once you’ve melted everything, you’ll add in the Rice Krispie cereal and mix everything until everything is coated. You’ll press the mixture into a pan and then let it cool before serving.
Storage – If by some miracle you don’t eat the whole pan immediately, be sure to keep them covered so they don’t dry out.
