Always Soft Rice Krispie Treats

I hate hard Rice Krispie Treats.  They really get my goat.  What a waste.  Don't make waste.  Make 'em and keep 'em soft, people.  Jeez.


Rice Krispies or favorite dry cereal

10 oz bag of marshmallows

1/2 stick of butter or 4 tbs of margarine

greased pan or cookie sheet


1.     Gather all of your measured out ingredients. The process is quick, so you must have all of your ingredients ready. Make sure your grease your pan first, so once you are finished mixing the ingredients you can pour warm mixture onto cookie sheet or pan.

2.     Start by melting your butter or margarine into a large pot on low heat. Allow to mostly melt down.

3.     Add  bag of marshmallows to pot when butter is mostly melted. Mix the butter and marshmallows. Coat all of the marshmallows with the butter. Let the marshmallow melt slowly, but NOT completely. The melted marshmallow and butter should still have marshmallow lumps.

4.     When marshmallows are mostly melted, turn off stove and immediately add 5 cups of Rice Krispy cereal. (Such a small amount makes for really gooey treat squares). Mix cereal into melted marshmallows. Mix from the bottom up, evenly coating the cereal with the marshmallows.

5.     Quickly pour onto greased cookie sheet. Spread out the mixture onto the cookie sheet evenly. DO NOT PRESS DOWN. Pressing down the mixture will result in hard square treats.  Again, do not press down.  This will ruin the entire point of this recipe.

6.     Allow to cool for an hour before cutting squares. The squares will stay soft and gooey for several days. Store in greased tupperware for freshness.
