Marshmallow Rice Krispies

Rice Krispies treats were a childhood favourite of mine, so making these for my children was a nostalgic trip down memory lane. But the treats I ate as a child never had enough goo factor, and so these marshmallow Rice Krispies treats were born, complete with extra gooeyness.

Rice Krispies Treats

No one really needs a recipe for marshmallow Rice Krispies treats, as they are so easy to make that my children can do it by themselves. But getting the proportions of marshmallows to Rice Krispies to butter correct is important for ensuring the proper gooey texture, as is using the freshest ingredients and the softest marshmallows.

Rice Krispies Treats

You'll want to melt the marshmallows and butter gently over a low heat, and stop when the marshmallow are liquid and just melted. If you continue melting, the sugars will harden, and you'll end up with crunchy treats. You could even remove the marshmallow from heat before they have fully liquidised, thus leaving a few marshmallow pockets in your treats for added gooeyness.

I used actual Kelloggs Rice Krispies cereal for these marshmallow Rice Krispies treats, but feel free to use your preferred brand of puffed rice cereal - it will work equally well and still taste great! And although the treats taste best when eaten on the same day, it is possible to store them in an airtight container for up to three days. Make sure the container is airtight, or your treats will lose their gooey texture very quickly.
