Rice Krispie Treats

I know they have this recipe on every pack of marshmallows AND Rice Krispies box.. but I have some extra thoughts that will make them turn out MUCH better. Trust me.

Prep Time: 2 minutes
Cook Time: 7 minutes
Total Time: 10 minutes


1.  6 cups of Rice Krispies (Or if you’re feeling adventurous, Cocoa Pebbles or probably any cereal would work)
2.  One large bag of marshmallows
3.  Half a stick of butter (4 Tbsp)
4.  A small amount (~1 tsp) of vanilla extract
5.  Something else fun to add. I like rainbow jimmies. Food coloring, sprinkles, chocolate chips, and many other things would also work. Or don’t add anything!


Get a big big bowl. Make sure it’s microwave safe. (if you don’t have one big enough to mix all of the ingredients you have before you, I apologize. You will have more clean up. Do one of the following things: Follow directions to heat on a stove found on box or do the same but use a smaller microwave safe bowl to only heat marshmallows and butter, then transfer over to a bigger bowl to mix.)
Add butter to the bowl and microwave on high for one minute. Add all of the marshmallows and microwave for 50 seconds. Mix. Microwave for an additional 40 seconds. Add Vanilla extract and mix until smooth. Add Rice Krispies and other fun-ness you choose (Jimmies, etc).
Lay out a 12″ piece of wax paper. Dump mixture onto wax paper. Wet hands with water. Press mixture into any shape you want (square, heart, whatever!) Let them cool. All done
