    Bec's Note:

    This is the recipe for the original rice krispies treats squares...It never fails! Plus, it is a great way to use up a box of cereal! For best results, use fresh marshmallows. I have replaced the butter once with Mott's Healthy Baking butter or oil substitute (it was basically an unsweetened apple sauce) and they still turned out great!

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Melt butter in a large saucepan over low heat.
    2. 2
      Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted.
    3. 3
      Remove from heat.
    4. 4
      (It would be perfect to be measuring out all of the cereal at this time, having it ready in a large bowl.).
    5. 5
      Working quickly, add rice krispies cereal, and stir until the cereal is well coated.
    6. 6
      Using a buttered spatula or waxed paper, press the mixture evenly into a greased 13 by 9 by 2 inch pan (or whatever pan you have on hand).
    7. 7
      When the treats are cooled, cut into squares.
    8. 8
      Serve, and enjoy!

      Yum yum!! Delicious, classic recipe! I switched it up a bit and threw in a teaspoon of vanilla and a drop or two of almond extract and a tiny bit of maple flavoring - delicious!!

      I had forgotten how much of a pain in the arse Rice Krispie treats really are. Haha. Plus, my marshmallows were ancient, so they didn't melt well. (Read the description, chefs!) However, I am pretty sure this is the original recipe, and the kids say they taste fine. I thought the recipe I used to make had vanilla in it, but it was Betty Crocker rather than back-of-the-box. So despite the rice krispies all over the kitchen and the sticky pan, thank you for posting.

      Thanks for posting this great recipe. I also bought Rrice Krispies with no recipe on the box. You'd think I'd remember how after making this tons of times in the past 60 years, but, of course, I didn't. Anyway - yummy and as usual I had to eat the first one while it was still gooey and falling apart. They set up if you can wait awhile. Great for kids and not so young kids.
