How do I keep my Rice Krispie Treats from sticking and creating a marshmallow mess?
I always spray my rubber spatula with a good coating of cooking spray and then mixing my Krispie Treats is so much easier! You can also spray the mixing bowl you use and of course, spray the 9×13 glass pan with cooking spray too. No more mess!
How do you keep Rice Krispie Treats soft?
- Make sure to not use stale marshmallows. Seriously. Rice Crispy Treats are not the treat to use up those old, hard marshmallows! Recently purchased marshmallows work best.
- Watch that you don’t overcook. You want to heat the marshmallows until they’re soft and beginning to lose shape. I find it’s easiest to not overcook marshmallows if I heat them in the microwave. Mine take just over 1 minute to be ready- that’s it!
- Always remember the butter. The marshmallow-butter combination helps keep the treats soft and chewy, so don’t leave it out or reduce the measurement.
- Don’t chill in the refrigerator. Even if you want them to set quickly, I find this just dries the marshmallow treats out more quickly.
- Store in an airtight container on the counter top.
