Everyone likes different textures when it comes to food. Let's take the chocolate chip cookie for example. Everyone loves a chocolate chip cookie. But not everyone likes the same type. Some like a cakey cookie. Some like a chewy cookie. Some like a crisp cookie. Some like a gooey cookie. So why wouldn't this same principle apply to rice kripsy treats? Today, we are going to find out what is Your perfect rice krispy treat texture.
I think there are 3 main categories for rice krispy textures.
1.) GOOEY. These people like their rice krispies stick-to-your-fingers, ultra gooey delicious. I respect that. Any dessert that must be eaten with a spoon because of it's gooeyness is on my radar.
So How do I modify the Recipe? Instead of the basic 1:1 ratio of rice krispies to marshmallows that all my recipes use, these people need to up the ratio to 3:4 (so for every 3 cups of rice krispies used, 4 cups of marshmallows should be used. Yum)
2.) DENSE. These people like their treats to pack some junk in the trunk. I'm talking a hearty, really chewy texture--but still with the marshmallow goo factor.
So How do I modify the Recipe? The rice krispy to marshmallow ratio remains the same 1:1. These people are all about the extras. So for every 1 cup of marshmallow and rice krispies used, they should add in at least 1-2 Tbsp of an add-in. My top recommendations are: Peanut Butter, Nutella, Cookie Butter, or melted chocolate chips. More loving for the hugging here people.
3.) NO NONSENSE. These people like the marshmallow flavor, but aren't into getting it all over their hands/face/clothing/etc. This one's got the flavor and slight goo, but without excess.
So How do I modify the Recipe? Winner winner, chicken dinner! No modification necessary--I tailor all my recipes for you people since this seems to be the majority of people. Whoo hoo!
And because some of us are visual learners, I've made a side-by-side photo comparison.
(I know what you're thinking... and yes, I was a hand model in my previous days.)
So I hope I've changed your life just a little today. You can now have a confidant answer for the next time someone asks you how you like your rice krispy treats. Because people ask that kind of question all the time ;)
