Basic Rice Krispy Treats

Mallow and Co: Basic Rice Krispy Treats

Um, so in the last few weeks I have had several people ask me where my basic rice kripsy treat recipe is. Just a good plain, old fashioned rice krispy cereal and marshmallows. They've looked through my site and haven't been able to find it anywhere. Well people that's because I am an ultimate fail. My cooking blog, dedicated to rice krispy treats, does not have a basic rice krispy treat recipe! How embarrassing...


Mallow and Co: Basic Rice Krispy Treats

So I decided to remedy that today! Here you go peeps, Mallow and CO's traditional no frills rice krispy treat. These are my basic ratios that I've always found to work great for me. I do always add some vanilla extract, I find that it really helps the flavors really pop. But other than that just the good old gooey marshmallows mixed with the iconic rice cereal. Enjoy!

Mallow and Co: Basic Rice Krispy Treats


Basic Rice Krispy Treats

5 Tbsp butter
6 cups marshmallows (Make sure the cups are Full. Not necessarily overflowing, but not skimpy either)

1 tsp vanilla
6 cups rice krispies


Pour the rice krispies into a large, greased bowl. Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Turn the heat down to the low and add the marshmallows. Continuing stirring until the marshmallows are all melted, slow and steady everyone, slow and steady... (see my tips page if you want to know why)


Once fully melted, take them off heat and pour over the rice krispies. Stir/fold lightly to combine. Dump into a lightly greased 9x9 pan and let sit 5 minutes. Then go and light press into the pan with greased hands. Allow to fully cool/set for about 20-30 minutes. Enjoy!

  2. I always overfill the marshmallow cups, because more marshmallows mean better treats! Love that you put them in a smaller pan so they are super thick too!

  3. Sometimes just having the BASIC recipes up are really what people want. I have like 12 or 15 different types of choc chip cookies. But just having those basic go-to ones are the ones people seem to click onto the most. I also just read your tips page. A 1:1 mallow:cereal ratio is so smart! How many cups of mallows do you get out of an avg sized bag of Kraft mallows? I'm guessing maybe 3? So 2 bags per recipe, or not quite 2 bags?

    1. Seriously, sometimes basic is best! The amount of marshmallows depends on the bag size. The 10oz bag gives you about 6 cups of marshmallows (pretty much the perfect amount), a 16oz bag gives you around 8+ cups, and then the 8oz bags give you around 5ish cups.... haha, too much info. I wish they'd just have some regulated sizes! Thanks for stopping by!
