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?
Here are several ways to keep rice krispie treats soft. They’re simple, but effective!
- 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.
How can you make Rice Crispy Treats?
Here’s my no-fail, always a hit basic recipe for rice crispy treats:
