How to Make Perfect Rice Krispie Treats
1. **Preparation**: Begin by lining a baking sheet with parchment or foil. This will make removal easier later. If you’re using parchment, consider giving it a light coat of nonstick cooking spray to ensure easy release of the sticky treats.
2. **Melt the Butter**: In a large pot, melt the butter over medium-low heat.
3. **Add Marshmallows**: Incorporate all but 1 cup of the mini marshmallows into the pot and stir until they melt smoothly. If you’re using a microwave, place marshmallows and butter in a microwave-safe bowl. Melt in the microwave on high for 1 1/2 – 2 minutes. Stir intermittently to ensure even melting.
4. **Mix in Cereal**: Once the marshmallow mixture is smooth, stir in the crisped rice cereal. Make sure the cereals are well coated with the butter-marshmallow mixture.
5. **Set and Cool**: Scoop the sticky cereal mixture onto the prepared pan. Don’t press too hard when setting the mixture into the pan; gentle pressing ensures soft treats. Let them set and cool down.
6. **Cut and Serve**: To make cutting easier, unmold the treat block onto a cutting board. Utilize a pizza cutter or a large knife sprayed with cooking spray to cut the treats into your desired shape.
7. **Store**: Cover the pan with aluminum foil or wrap individual portions with plastic wrap to keep the treats fresh.
Keys to the Perfect Rice Krispie Treats:
– **Use Low Heat**: This prevents the treats from becoming hard and crunchy.
– **Press Gently**: Over pressing can compact the treats, making them harder.
– **Bonus Step**: Using Parchment Paper isn’t required, but a well-buttered pan works just as well.
