Steps

Method 1 of 3: Making the Traditional Recipe

Make Rice Krispies Treats Step 1

Step 1. Melt the butter

Transfer 3 tablespoons unsalted butter to a large saucepan and melt over low heat.

Do not use diet margarine as it leaves the candy with a very strong fat flavor

Step 2. Add a packet of marshmallow and cook for about fifteen minutes

Pour the whole package into the pan, mercilessly, and mix well until the marshmallow melts completely and mixes with the butter.

You can also add 4 cups of mini marshmallows or 200 g of marshmallow cream

Using the microwave:

If you can't make this candy on the stove, melt the butter and marshmallow in the microwave, heating them for two minutes on high power. After this time, stir them well with a spatula and take them back to the microwave, heating them for another minute.

Step 3. Add 6 cups of rice flakes

Once that's done, mix well, mixing all the ingredients, which should take about five minutes.

Alternative version:

You can use whatever cereal you like! Not into rice flakes? So, take 6 cups of your favorite cereal and mix it with the marshmallow.

Step 4. Transfer the mixture to a greased baking sheet and let it cool for about fifteen minutes

Find a 33 x 23 x 5 shape, spray it with a non-stick spray and add the candy. Before taking it out of the pan, however, spread a little butter on the spatula so that it doesn't end up sticking together. After putting the mixture on the baking sheet, squeeze it tightly so it stays flat and let it cool at room temperature.

It is important to grease the spatula with butter, as this candy is very sticky

Step 5. Cut it into 2 inch squares

After leaving the candy to cool for about fifteen minutes, it's ready to serve! To make it even more delicious, eat it all in the same day.

To cut, rely on a butter knife

Step 6. When it's time to store, transfer the candy to a closed jar and leave it at room temperature for up to two days

If you want to store it longer, place parchment paper between each layer of candy, still in a closed jar, take it to the freezer and leave it there for up to six weeks.

Before eating the frozen candy, leave it at room temperature for about fifteen minutes

Method 2 of 3: Making Chocolate Rice Flakes

Step 1. Melt the butter and marshmallows in a large saucepan

Add 4 tablespoons unsalted butter to a saucepan and allow to melt over medium-high heat. Then add 450 g of marshmallows and keep stirring until melted, too.

You can also add 4 cups of mini marshmallows or 200 g of marshmallow cream

Step 2. Add ¼ cup cocoa powder to the pan

Beat it well with a fouet until it forms a smooth mixture. If you are a card-carrying chocoholic, this is the time to add a little cocoa powder to make the recipe even more delicious.

Step 3. Add rice flakes and chocolate chips

Put 5 cups of rice flakes and 1/3 cup of chocolate chips in the pan and remove from heat. With a spatula, mix everything for about ten minutes.

So as not to end up with everything stuck to the spatula, butter it

Alternative version:

Add ½ cup peanuts or chopped walnuts to the mixture, making the recipe even more crispy.

Step 4. Transfer the mixture to a baking sheet and sprinkle a few drops of chocolate on top

Start by smearing a 20 x 20 cm tin with a non-stick spray and spread the candy, leaving it well leveled.

When it's time to cover, use what's left of the chocolate chips

Make Rice Krispies Treats Step 11

Step 5. Allow the mixture to cool for about fifteen minutes and cut into squares

Once the candy has cooled, cut it into squares of about 5 cm to make it easier to eat.

Store the candy in a closed jar and leave at room temperature for up to two days. If you want to store it longer, take the jar to the freezer and leave it there for up to six weeks

Method 3 of 3: Decorating the Candy

Step 1. If you want to add a special touch, cover it

After the candy has cooled and before cutting it into squares, cover it with the help of a spatula. You can use a ready-made cover or make it at home.

To make it even more crunchy, mix the granules with the topping

Step 2. Cover dessert in melted chocolate or sweets to make it even more irresistible

To start with, melt chocolate or some sweets suitable for this in the microwave. Then dip them piece by piece and let them dry on parchment paper.

To make it even prettier, sprinkle some edible glitter or other sweets over the pieces while the icing hardens

Step 3. Transform the candy into a lollipop using wooden sticks

After the rice flakes have cooled, cut them normally and place a wooden toothpick on each piece. We are sure the kids will approve of the idea!

You can find the toothpicks at the market or in a bakery
