Rice Krispy Treats aren’t complicated. You probably made them at least a time or two when you were a kid. While I’d never turn down anyone else’s rice krispy treats, I’m kind of picky about my own.
I like Rice Krispy Treats that are soft enough to pull apart with my fingers, the day after making them, after they’ve been sitting out on the counter. I’ve tested this recipe (just for all of you, because heaven knows, I could’ve easily polished off the batch is well under 24 hours!) by leaving the sliced rice krispy treats on a plate for 48 hours and they remained chewy and not at all hard. I don’t like my rice krispy treats to scrape the roof of my mouth or become crunchy. So, in a nutshell, gooey rice krispy treats = my happy place.
This recipe, it is THE recipe. In a nutshell, take the original recipe off the side of the cereal box, add more butter, add way more marshmallows, and there you have it. It isn’t complicated, but oh, it makes me so very happy to have the Perfect Rice Krispy Treat ready to eat in just minutes.
Remember the chocolate covered rice krispy treats I mentioned earlier? That’s what happens when you have just two remaining rice krispy treats and you decide to chop them very small and dip them in melted chocolate. Pop them in the refrigerator and 15 minutes later, you have a plate full of rapidly disappearing bite-size candies that your kids (and everyone else!) will love!
