Loved by kids and adults alike, these treats are not only easy to make but also versatile enough to satisfy any sweet tooth. So, if you are in need of a quick and tasty dessert recipe, look no further!


– 3 tablespoons of unsalted butter
– 1 package (10 ounces) of marshmallows
– 6 cups of Rice Krispies cereal

Optional ingredients for added sweetness or variations:
– 1/2 cup of chocolate chips
– 1/2 cup of sprinkles
– 1/2 cup of chopped nuts (e.g., almonds, peanuts, or walnuts)
– Food coloring (to make colored treats)
– 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract


1. In a large saucepan, melt the butter over low heat. Once melted, add the marshmallows and stir continuously until they have completely melted and combined with the butter.

2. Optional: If you are adding any additional ingredients, such as chocolate chips or sprinkles, now is the time to add them to the mixture.

3. Remove the saucepan from the heat and add the Rice Krispies cereal. Gently fold the cereal into the marshmallow mixture until all the cereal is coated evenly.

4. Prepare a rectangular baking dish by greasing it lightly with butter or lining it with parchment paper. This will prevent the treats from sticking.

5. Transfer the Rice Krispie mixture into the prepared baking dish and press it down firmly with a spatula or your hands. Ensure that it is evenly spread across the dish and compacted.

6. Allow the treats to cool and set for at least 30 minutes. For faster cooling, you can place the dish in the refrigerator.

7. Once the treats are set, cut them into squares or desired shapes using a sharp knife or cookie cutter.

Now you can serve and enjoy these delectable Rice Krispie treats with your loved ones. They are perfect for parties, lunchbox treats, or simply as a sweet indulgence.

Remember, you can always make these treats unique by exploring variations. If you want them to be chocolaty, sprinkle some chocolate chips on top before they fully set. For colorful treats, separate the mixture into smaller bowls and add a few drops of food coloring to each portion, creating a rainbow effect. The possibilities are endless!

Whether you are looking to indulge your childhood memories or introduce your kids to a delightful classic, Rice Krispie treats will never disappoint. So grab your ingredients and start making this easy recipe. A batch of homemade Rice Krispie treats will be ready in no time, making everyone’s day a little sweeter.
