Recipe: Rice Krispies Treat

Let’s get these recipes up during September. I’m not at 50 yet, but I’m closing in. Let me know if you attempt it and if anything is wrong or confusing. These aren’t the final recipes… I don’t think…

Rice Krispies Treats


  • Cereal
  • Bag of mini marshmallows
  • Stick of butter (1/2 cup; does not have to be dairy butter)


  • Pan that fits all of the ingredients
  • Wooden spoon (for stirring the hot mixture)
  • Parchment or waxed paper
  • Place for the treats to cool down


  1. Melt the butter in the pan on medium to low heat.
  2. Add the marshmallows.  Stir until all the marshmallows are melted.
  3. Remove from heat.
  4. Add cereal and mix well.
  5. As the mixture cools off the butter and marshmallows will return to a solid form.  You must get the cereal thoroughly combined before that happens.
  6. Let cool off.  You can change the forms to an extent after it cools off.  Such as switching the bar into a ball with a little extra work.
  7. Eat!  These are best served at room temperature.


  • Any cereal technically works. Just watch for the allergens with each type.  The traditional rice krispies often times has malt flavoring which is derived from wheat.  Ask for who likes what and who cannot eat what before deciding on your cereal of choice.
  • Marshmallows have a tendency to add blue coloring. There is a blue coloring derived from soy.  So be wary on the label before picking the marshmallows.  Any size or shape works.  Minis are fastest at melting.
  • You can dip in chocolate and add a crunch before the chocolate sets. Or you can drizzle with chocolate.  Just use something at when heated melts and when room temperature is solid.  Chocolate is the natural go to here.
  • If you want to add pieces without the chocolate drizzle or dip, do so while it’s still hot, but mostly mixed. Just press them where ever you want them.  Or mix them in with the cereal.

This is one of Cyro’s favorites to make. Quick, easy, messy, and delicious. Okay, child isn’t fond of the messy part.
