Ultimate Rice Crispy Treats

Ultimate Rice Crispy Treats

Ive alwayz struggled w/ making good rice crispy treats. Always trying new recipes, hoping that maybe I'll finally land a decent one. Biggest complaint is that they usually end up very dry and won't hold together. Tonight I finally found whats honestly the best rice crispy treat recipe EVER! They're so perfect. The original recipe* calls for regular rice cereal but I used cocoa crispies; either would work. Also the original recipe calls for vanilla. I skipped the vanilla. But anyway, Here's the recipe Below (exact way I made it)...

Ultimate Rice Crispy Treats

1/4 C salted butter
4 C mini marshmallows
1 C mini marshallows
5 C crisp rice cereal 
1/2 small Jar Marshmallow cream (so that would be like 3 ounces)

  1. Combine butter and 4 C marshmallows in a mircrowave-safe bowl. Cook for 1 1/2- 2 minutes or until the butter and marshmallow are just melted, no longer.
  2. Add remaining 1 C of marshmallows and 5 C of cereal and stir until the cereal is well coated. (Gage the texture as you stir and you can add a tad more rice cereal and/or more marshmallows, if needed.)
  3. Butter 9x9 glass pan and spread 1/2 of the cereal mixture into the pan, pressing with just barely buttered hands to make it easier.
  4. Place spoonfuls of the marshmallow cream over the entire top of the layer of cereal and spread to cover.
  5. Press remaining cereal mixture over the marshmallow cream and press into an even layer.
  6. Let cool and set for about an hour and slice. I put mine in the freezer for apx 30 min. Then Cut.
