Rice Crispy Treats

Happy Friday! My Great Grandmother used to make us Rice Crispy Treats every summer when we visited her. She cut them in perfect squares, wrapped them in wax paper, and placed them in small white boxes for us. And what a treat it was – to open a box and find these gooey, chewy, yummy, delicious, sweet – rice crispy treats! This is the classic recipe (from the back of the Marshmallow bag). These are extremely easy to make, and extremely easy to eat – beware! 🙂 (I might or might not have eaten these for breakfast this week!)

Blog classic rice crispy treats


  • 3 Tbsp butter
  • 40 marshmallows
  • 6 cups Rice Crispies


  • Melt butter in large microwave safe bowl
  • Toss butter with marshmallows to coat, and put back in microwave for another ~1 minute or until melted
  • Mix well and add Rice Crispies immediately
  • Pat into large dish (8×11 or 8×13) and let cool
  • Cut into squares and store in an airtight container with wax paper to separate the pieces

Super Mom Tip: Even though this recipe requires dealing with very hot liquid marshmallow and butter – there are definitely some steps that your tots can help with. Ava helped me by counting marshmallows and sampling some 🙂 and by pouring in the rice cereal.

    Well, since technically, Rice Crispies are a cereal, I think they SHOULD be eaten for breakfast 🙂 Although, that might be me justifying what I would do if I had a big pan in my kitchen! haha
