These are great!! I went a little crazy throwing stuff into them, lol. I added a few chocolate chips I had left from another recipe, a couple Hershey bars broken up, and a big spoonful of peanut butter. Yum! I didn't butter the pan, I used cooking spray. Another helpful tip, if you spray your hands with the cooking spray, you can press them into the pan without getting all sticky!Read More
This is a basic easy recipe. Pretty much the same as all the other Rice Krispies recipes. The reason why this one is getting 2 stars is because YOU CANNOT SUB MARSHMALLOW CREME, your treats will NEVER set up. I have faithfully tried this recipe 2 times with Marshmallow creme and each time they NEVER set up, you have to eat them with a spoon. Needless to say I have wasted time and ingredients, and I have come to the conclusion that you just can't sub marshmallow creme. I have no idea why this lady is suggesting this to you because it will not work, maybe she never tried it but it just dosen't work. USE REGULAR MARSHMALLOWS!Read More

i put my own spin on this already fabulous recipe. instead of rice krispies, i used meatloaf....fantastic!!!
Who doesn't like these? Heck, even the major coffee shops carry these in their bakeries, and charge too much for them too! I vary the measurements slightly (1/4 c. butter, 50 regular marhmallows or 5 c. miniature marshmallows, 6 c. Rice Krispies) but the result is the same--ooey, gooey good! I like them thicker, so I make them in a buttered 9x9" pan. For extra decadence I often melt an 11 oz. package of milk chocolate chips and spread them over the top. Absolutely out of this world!

Great Recipe! I of course added my own spin to it ;). I used the same measurements for the butter, marshmallows, and rice cereal. However, I added a capful of milk, splash of vanilla, heaping spoon of peanut butter, and then to crown it off some peanut butter m&m's!!!!!!!!!!! AMAZING. I aslo used the microwave suggestion....excellent. I would suggest either using a smaller pan though or doubling the batch as others suggested. Have fun with this classic recipe!
This can easily be done in a big microwave safe bowl in the microwave. Melt butter for 30 seconds. Add marshmallos , cook on high for 45 seconds, stir and then add the crispies. I also like to add a big spoonful of crunchy peanut butter to the marshmallow butter mixture-then continue as before-delish!
This recipe was great! I used non-colored rice crispies, then as the marshmallow was melting I added red food coloring to it. I also laid them out on the pan a little thinner than instructed. Once they were dry, I cut them into heart shapes, and put two hearts together with peanut butter in the middle for a little "marshmallow sandwich". They are adorable and taste great! Plus, they are pink for Valentine's Day!
This is a very standard recipe, but definetly a good one! I usually use marshmallows over the creme. At easter, we use a lamb mold and fill it with the rice krispy mixture. One great tip is to wet your hands before transferring the rice crispy treats to the pan. it prevents a lot of sticking and mess. Use can also add 2/3 cup peanut butter to the melted butter and marshmallow. Yum!
Awesome. I usually just use a 10.5 oz bag of mini marshmallows. I don't butter my pan or utensils, I just spray with buttered flavored cooking spray. We love these.
So good! I scaled this to make 36 servings (I had a 10.5 oz minimarshmallow bag=6cups mini marshmallows). Per other reviewers, I added 2 tsp milk, 1 tsp vanilla (added a little before marshmallows were fully melted) and this really made it!!! Oh, and 7 1/2 cups of cereal along with the marshmallow mixture was NOT going to fit into my saucepan. So, I put the cereal in a large metal bowl, and poured the melted marshmallow mixture over it, mixed and voila! Put it in an 11 x 7 and forced myself to clean up so I didn't go and eat the whole thing at once!
Rice crispie treats....loved these when I was a kid. Now I add milk chocolate chips or M-n-M's to them. The kids love it (and adults do too.) Thanks for the post.
These are great but a few tips, if you want the gooiest most marshmallowiest rice krispies then use 5 cups marshmallows and 5 cups rice krispies. It makes the sweetest, gooiest treats in the world! Another tip is when you're evening out the treats in a pan, you can just wet your hands (don't dry them) and press it down that way! They don't stick at all! This is a great recipe and whenever I want to make these treats, I always use this recipie! I love it!
Used 1 stick butter, 1 box (12 oz) rice krispies, and 1 large bag jet puff and followed directions exactly, melting butter and marsh slowly - turned out great as others have said. Using these same proportions and directions I have found that you can use (and kids of all ages LOVE) different cereals (i.e. reeses, oreos, etc.).
I made Christmas Trees out of this batch. I got about 10 using a 3.5 tree cookie cutter. Follow directions as is, don't forget to butter a 9X13 pan, press the rice crispies down "firmly" with "buttered hands", place in the refridgerator for about 15-20 minutes. You should get 7 trees first, then you need to take the leftover rice crispie, press firmly together, until you reach as many trees as you can get. I placed them back in the refridgerator for another 20 minutes, heating up white premier chocolate morsals, then dipped only 1 side of each tree, immediately decorate each one as you go by. Place back in the refridgerator so the chocolate can firm up. Place in holiday cello wrap/ribbon. All set! I added a picture so you can see the final result. Picture #49
Great recipe. I followed the most helpful review and made in 9x13 cake pan added 11.5 C rice krispie cereal + 1 stick butter + 16 oz mini marshmallows (about 1.5 bags) + 1 TBS vanilla A hit with everyone!
Someone else posted "ADD 2 1/2 TEASPOONS OF MILK WHEN THE MARSHMALLOWS ARE ALMOST DONE MELTING AND IT MAKES IT CREAMIER!!!" Take her advice!! You can even SEE it happen!
Perfect! it's a normal bag of the big marshmallows if you get the bigger size. I switched up 2 cups with golden grahams to give it a change.
These little guys are always great to make. I've used them numerous times as edible packaging instead of packing peanuts in care packages. Deployment approved, too!
Great! FYI: One 12 oz box comes out to a little over 11 cups. I used the whole box, 1 stick of butter, and one whole bag of mini marshmallows. I like mine the old-school way so I didn't add anything extra.
I have used this for Popcorn Balls as well. Just substitute the cereal with popped corn. And you can add food coloring or flavoring to the butter & marshmallows. Then just form into balls with greased hands. You will probably want to double or triple the recipe. Much tastier than the Karo syrup kind!
Just like when I was a kids. Perfect. Add some chocolate chips, M&Ms, nuts, rasins, 1/2 c. peanut butter, Coco krispies, very versatile and this one does it all. Thanks.
Really good; I added 1 teaspoon of milk and vanilla to the melted marshmallow mixture. Made them very chewy and moist!
I used gluten free marshmallows and rice cereal added 4 squares of organic dark chocolate and 1/2 teaspoon of organic villani...TASTY!
Perfect as is.
Great basic recipe for krispy bars! You can add in anything you want, or change the cereal to chocolate or fruity krispies... This recipe in a 9x13 pan makes bars less than an inch thick. If you're wanting really thick bars, a 9x13 pan could easily hold a double recipe.
Good ratios and easy to follow directions...however, use a smaller pan unless you want thin bars. I used a 8X8 and it was just full.
Double the recipe and after putting it in the pan quickly while the mixture is still hot but spread across the 9x13 pan sprinke with about 2 cups of mini m & ms. Or sprinkle with a combination of milk chocolate morsels and white chocolate morsels. Press them firmly into the rice crispy mixture and let cool....cheap, easy, and very yummie...kids love it.
Of course, this gets 5 stars! Yummy!
These are super easy to make. I used marshmallow fluff instead of marshmallows, and changed my proportions to 5cups fluff & 6 1/4 cups of cereal. I probably could have added more cereal, there seemed to be more fluff then cereal! :) I also thought about adding in some peanut butter when you melt the fluff...next time!
Very good, but I didn't give this 5 stars because I actually think it needs more marshmallow. I like my treats chewy, while I will definitely try this recipe again I will add about 2 cups more marshmallow.
Gotta love a classic! Although, I have to disagree with the suggestion of also being able to use marshmallow creme. Tried that in college and it never hardened up. The marshmallow creme stayed creamy so it made for gooey, drippy, limp marshmallow treats.
I used the tips by other viewers (added 2 1/2 tsp milk, 16 oz mini marshmallows, 1/8 tsp vanilla) only thing is i used 9 cups of rice cereal :) DELICIOUS!!! Huge hit @ wrk. Thank you for this recipe!! Note: I cooked these on low heat & stirred the butter until it was entirely melted as well as the Marshmallows and when they were almost melted added the milk (like the suggestion)w/ the rice i added little by little waiting until the rice was entirely coated then added more. mind u i stirred from beginning to end :) The damp hands for transfer....AWESOME heads up!!!
This is the basic recipe, nothing extraordinairy.. but delicious none the less! I use 40 large marshmallows, 5.5-6 cups of krispies and 1/4 cup butter. A splash of vanilla extract is also lovely.
I added vanilla and pink die. Thank you "makeiteasy4me". I have always made hard as rock crispy treats but with your tips this was awsome. Cook everything on low low low and just be patient for the ingredients to melt.
Not to be over-dramatic, but I just made the best batch of Rice Krispie Treats that I've ever made in my 40 years! I followed the tips of the first reviewer and warmed everything slowly on the stove top. I also also added a couple teaspoons of milk to make it creamy. Simplicity never tasted so good!
Ooey and gooey. Oil the pan to keep from sticking and oil your hand to push the treat into the pan. Never gonna buy this again. I will always be making it. Thanks for the formula.
A classic childhood treat! I added a splash of vanilla. I prefer to make these on the stove as well, the marshmallows seems to melt better that way. I put orange coloring in the marshmallows, shaped into balls, and added tootsie rolls stems and green icing leaves for the fall. Cute and festive!
Great basic recipe that you can add your own twist to. For anyone that is using homemade marshmallows you will want to use 8oz of marshmallows. I also like using a smaller pan as I like the treats thicker then what this one will turn out to be.
Very easy to make, and rave reviews from my taste testers. I doubled the recipe...used 1 stick butter, 1 16 oz bag of mini marshmallows, and 11 cups of cereal. I found that I think they come out better if you press them into a greased 10x15 jellyroll pan instead of a 13x9. Using a 13x9 made them too thick. I made three batches last night...one with plain Rice Krispies, one with Cocoa Pebbles that I topped with mini chocolate chips, and one batch of Fruity Pebbles. They're all great!
These were great. Instead of the traditional peanut butter or chocolate chip, however, I added 1/4 tsp of cinnamon and 1/8 tsp nutmeg. It was a slightly different taste but completely delicious. My recipe was as follows: 1/4 cup butter 1 tbs milk 2 tsp vanilla 1/4 tsp cinnamon 1/8 tsp nutmeg 4 cups mini marshmellows 5 cups rice crisp cereal I also used the microwave method and they came out perfectly.
I made these with Cheerios rather than the Rice Krispies and added a little bit of vanilla extract (about 1 Tbsp) for a 4th of July family party. Hubby tried a few out (lol) and LOVED them!!!
EXACTLY like rice krispies treats! tastes good with strawberry marshmallows and gingerbread marshmallows too. :)
These are incredible! I have never made rice krispy treat before, and now I may never buy the packaged ones again. I made a couple additions after reading the reviews - 2 tsp. milk and 1 tsp. vanilla, added at the point where the marshmallows are almost completely melted. I also added an extra cup of marshmallows because I like them extra gooey. This will be a hit when the kids get home from school, I doubt there will be any left tonight. Thanks for the recipe!
This is a great recipe! Everyone loved them. Easy to follow & simple for children to help with.
Really good!! Way better than the original rice krispies recipe! Even my parents who think rice krispies taste like cardboard thought they were great!Oh and here is a tip: I lay out some wax paper and then just press the treats into whatever shape/ thickness I want, it makes clean up a lot easier because as soon as I'm done cutting up the treats, I just wrap them and store them in the wax paper.
I needed to make a birthday "cake" for a 4-year-old who doesn't like cake. This was a fantastic solution. I put the rice krispy treat into a jelly roll pan, cut 5 inch circles and layered them with pink icing as I would a cake. I even was able to make a rice krispy dress for a 4 inch princess figure and iced it white. My granddaughter was thrilled! And of course she ate the princess piece and then gave the toy a bath before she played with it. I HIGHLY recommend this recipe for a creative alternative for a fun birthday cake. I'll do it again for sure. I've posted photos #83 and #84 on this site.
I don't understand why mine came out super hard! First I thought that maybe the cereal was stale , but that wasn't it. Does anybody know what could have caused this? It hurt my jaw just chewing them!
Thank you for posting this recipe. The off brand cereal and marshmallow package usually don't carry the recipes so this is a nice reference. I also add a teaspoon or so of vanilla to the melted marshmallow/butter mixture before adding the rice krispies. Then I top with various sprinkles after pressing in the pan to give it a festive appearance.
MMMMMMMMMM i LOVE this recipe i melted 1/2 cup of dark chocolate and i added some of them on the top of the Marshmallow Treats they looked so delicious.
I had leftover marshmallows from a campfire roast and wanted to make these. I couldn't find the recipe anywhere (on the marshmallow bag or cereal box) and I knew I could come to Allrecipes to find it. This recipe turned out great and tastes just like what I remember from childhood. Thanks for posting this here.
My kids just loves this..
Yum yum yum!! These were great!! I made several batches of these for my Christmas dessert platters, and they were definitely a hit. I upped the mini marshmallows to 5 c and the cereal to 6 c...I followed another reviewers suggestion of adding a capful of milk to the melted marshmallows before the cereal is mixed in. I also drizzled some red and green candy melts over the top before cutting for decoration. They looked so festive! :~)
really like this recipe as the ingredients are measured by the cup
This recipe is very easy to cook. If you don't have any rice cereal you can use Cheerios
Perfectly easy! After putting them in the pan, I sprinkled them with diagonal stripes of different Christmas sprinkles. A perfect Christmas treat.
I made 2 batches just as told and didnt change a thing.I added green food coloring to the marshmellow of one batch after it was melted in the pan,then after it was all put together and done cooling,i used Christmas tree cookie cutters to make Christmas trees.I sprayed cookie cutters with cooking spray before cutting so it wouldn't stick.The other batch i left white and used snowflake cookie cutters.It worked really well and looked nice for my daughters Christmas concert class.
I have been looking for the perfect ratio. This is it. Buttery and marshmallowy - the way i like it.
Not that this recipe needs a review but these are perfect every time!!!!!
Really simple recipe, very yummy! I added a tsp of vanilla for extra flavor. I'll definitely use this recipe again! :9
for some reason mine were super dry and not very good...dont know where i went wrong
Followed recipe exactly. These were the "BOMB"! They were gone in minutes....with the help of a few kids of course.
Delicious! I recommend melting the butter very slowly, as well as melting the marshmallows very slowly. This recipe makes a very thin layer in a 9 x 13 pan, You should double if you like thicker treats.
Good but nothing special.
The original recipe was good but, whoever suggested adding milk, bleech. Since I add a bit more marshmallow and cereal to the original they came out stiff. My niece suggested the milk to make them "creamy" (like another reviewer said). They came out loose and not very marshmallowy - infact, they won't really hold together. All I can say is I'm happy that these are being given to the 4 & 6 yr olds that made them.
Yum! Haven't had these in years! The only change I made was adding a little vanilla. Great recipe :)
followed the first 2 reviews that pop up. These are a winner!
I think I needed to pack the marshmallows in the cup, because they weren't quite gooey enough. I also added 1 t. vanilla.
WAAAYYYY too much butter... i had to use 2 bags of large jet puff mallows, and 6 1/2 C of krispies, and 1/2 t of vanilla to have this taste right
Followed makeiteasy4me's advice (first review on recipe page) and it worked like a charm. I added mini colored ball sprinkles after I started stirring in the rice krispies, cut them out in the shape of a star and used a lollipop stick to create a fun "magic wand" for my daughter's princess party. Yummy and adorable. Thanks!
Great Recipe!!! Everyone loved these. I added 1 tps of vanilla just for fun but it was the perfect consistency!! Thanks for submitting it!!
my grand-daughter love's these marshmallow treats she enjoys helping me make them.my whole family loves them
I did add a teaspoon of vanilla. These are great! Makes the store bought ones taste like cardboard. And pretty good on the calories also!
you can not mess with perfection!
Added a bit of milk to the melted marshmallows and they turned out perfect. Next time I'm going to try adding M&M's.
A trick I've been using lately to press them: take a hand-sized piece of plastic wrap and spray one side with Pam. Use it to press them..nothing sticks. I used Kraft cinnamon bun marshmallows and they were great..I also mixed in coconut -flavored m&ms. Both the cinnamon and coconut flavors were mild. Everyone loves them! I also use 6 cups of marshmallows and they are still a little gooey and yummy. To get a good height on the bars you need to use a smaller pan or use 1.5 times the recipe....
These ones actually worked for me! Definitely cook them over an oven and make sure its really on a LOW heat. Like, ridiculously low even, otherwise the marshmellows will automatically burn when you put them in.
Good and easy to make!
Basic goodness. Added splash of vanilla extract with the marshmellows and then some PB M&M's along with the cereal. I also have the idea of using 1/2c rice crispies & 1/2c cocoa pebbles. Then along with the marshmellow to add 1/3c to 1/2c of Nutella.
This is a great recipe. I added 1/2 cup of M&M's to the batch...made for very colorful treats!
I'm not sure what went wrong here as I followed the recipe exactly. I sprayed my hands with vegetable oil as suggested, but I still couldn't keep marshmallow off of them. The treats were impossible to cut as they completely stuck to the knife and NOT to the pan. I will just pay the extra money for the pre-made ones form the store.
sooo good, I even use store brand rice cereal.
This is a standard rice crispy treat recipe with lots of potential. I warmed up some ready made chocolate frosting and drizzled it over the top of my marshmallow treats. In the future, I might add chocolate candies or butterscotch chips, but they're fine without those too. Also, I like my marshmallow treats a little thicker, so I didn't quite fill up a 13 X 9 pan.
Good stuff. I doubled the recipe. I used a full 16 oz bag of mini marshmallows, a full stick of butter, and lost count of how much cereal because I kept having kids come up and talk to me, so I just poured it in about a cup at a time until the consistency looked right. I also added two big spoonfuls of chunky peanut butter, a tablespoon and a half of milk, a couple teaspoons of vanilla, half a bag of milk chocolate chips, and half a bag of Heath Toffee chips. I also used the microwave method that was suggested, but needed to cook the mixture a full minute longer than recommended. No big deal, though. I used a cookie sheet, lined with waxed paper, and just pressed the mixture to the thickness I wanted them to be. Tasty and fast!
This is the way to do it perfectly!
I actually followed the measurements from first review. They turned out awesome but after trying them the next day the crispies were stale. I froze them since they are for 140 guests and I needed to make them ahead. I believe I had stale (no brand) rice cereal to begin with. I have been struggling to decide to serve them or not. I read that you can "save" your stale crispies by putting them in the oven. I tried it and it gave it a crunchy almost carmel like coating on the outside. If you take them directly out of the freezer and put them in the oven at 350 for 3 min you can improve the crispies by 50% I would say. They turned out pretty good so I am going to serve them at the party.
I like add a teaspoon of vanilla extract to make them taste even better!! My Grandmother used to make these all the time when we went to visit her.
I made a double-portion and it turned out really good. One thing was weird though: there are some crispies that are really crunchy. Overall delish.
I made this exactly as the recipe was written, except I put them in a 9 X 9 inch pan because we like them thicker. Also, I did not press them down in the pan. They were delicious, but I would have preferred more marshmallow. The next time, I will add an extra cup or two.
This is always a satisfying sweet treat. I was craving a chocolate snack, so I melted 1 (1 oz) square of unsweetened chocolate in with the butter (used only 2 tablespoons to cut down on the fat).
Yummy! If using a 9x13, I recommend to double the recipe. I thought mine were a little flat but still really good though. Next time I'm trying coconut marshmallows!
These were so good and gooey. My kids and I couldn't stop eating them and they were a hit our cookout. I followed the tips some of the others suggested and ended up using the whole bag of marshmallows and rice krispies with a whole stick of butter. Which was great so I didn't have half a bag of marshmallows hanging around in the cabinet. Thanks for sharing will be making this alot this summer.
I used marshmellow cream because I needed something kosher for my jewish youth group. It worked great because when it melted, it was uber sticky and was easy to press down even without a buttered spatula. I'm so pleased. It's a little grainy before it melts, but it's fine once its in there with the butter. I also used vanalla like others suggested. I love it! I hope the kids save me a piece!
Seriously amazing. Super easy to make and quite delicious. I increased the recipe to 5 cups of marshmallows to 6 cups of rice krispies and only 2 tablespoons of butter, just because 1/4 cup was just too much and because it would fill a little more into my 9x13 in baking dish. It filled about half way up my 9x13x3in pan. I had to throw in a cup of marshmallows and a big handful of chocolate chips after adding the rice krispies!! So delicious! I also added a tiny splash of vanilla and 2 teaspoons of milk to the melted marshmallows. I've tried a batch with the milk and another without. They both taste the same to me as well a their textures. This treat has a nice chew to it. It's light, airy, crispy, sweet & chewy. I made 3 batches already since I found this recipe like 2 days ago and I plan on making many more for my neighbors and friends! But seriously, once you eat one, you're hooked! This recipe has worked EVERYTIME. I honestly don't know how you can fail this recipe. Thank you so much!! Simply amazing.
I made mine according to another's tip of using a whole stick of butter, 16 oz. marshmallows, and 11 1/2 cups of crispy cereal and it turned out beautifully with nice thick treats which is how I prefer them.
Another tip for those of you who say your treats go hard. When butter sets up it gets hard. Right? Use the soft tub butter. It never gets hard. Works great and your treats will never be hard again. I promise!
Awesome! With the addition of 2 teaspoons of milk and a splash of vanilla, just perfect! I've sold them at bake sales and they sell like crazy!
These came out so good and gooey that I practically ate the entire tray. ; )
I followed the directions exactly as written and my treats came out tasting stale and bland. I used a brand new box of cereal.It doesn't make sense.
