Probably not too many people would bother to put a “recipe” for Rice Krispie Treats on their blog, because the recipe is widely available on every box of Rice Krispie cereal. Hell, it’s even on the back of the box of the Fred Meyer brand “Krispie Rice.”
But this, this is not a regular rice krispie treat.
It is so much more than a rice krispie treat.
For starters, it has like quadruple the amount of marshmallows. Some melted, some just kind of partially melted in the warm mixture.
They are ooey gooey amazing delicious and very, very messy rice krispie treats. There is nothing dried out about these.
I am fairly confident that my 3 year old son would have eaten this entire pan if I hadn’t taken them away from him before he made himself sick.
Next time you need a snack for t-ball, or any kid friendly snack, make these. Trust me. You’ll never make the boring regular ones again.
Recipe from Cookies and Cups.
5 tablespoons butter
8 cups + another 2 cups of mini marshmallows
6 cups Rice Krispies cereal
1/2 teaspoon salt
Spray a 9×9 inch pan with non-stick spray and line it with a foil or parchment paper sling. Spray again.
In a very large microwave safe bowl, place your butter, salt, and 8 cups of mini marshmallows. Microwave in 30 second increments, stirring in between, until butter and marshmallows are completely melted and smooth.
Add in the rice krispie cereal and mix well. Add in the remaining marshmallows while still warm and lightly press into your prepared pan. (using a spoon with a little butter on it will help you accomplish this without it sticking all over your hands.)
Chill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes before cutting into squares. Enjoy!
