How to Make Rice Krispie Treats


Hey everyone, it’s Sam here from Sugar Spun Run and today I’ll be showing you how to make my favorite gourmet Rice Krispies Treats. I’m willing to be that just about everybody who’s watching has made rice krispies treats at least once in their life. They’re very easy to make. It’s one
of the first recipes I remember making as a kid, and they are so good. Well today
I am sharing my rice krispies treat recipe, which is not quite the same as
the one on the box. These are gourmet rice krispies treats. So full of
marshmallows and full of flavor I think you’re going to love them. So let’s begin.
Now to start we’re going to need to head over to our stove top where you are
going to need a large pot. I’m going to be using a large Dutch oven to make these. Now you’re going to need 6 tablespoons of salted butter, and I highly recommend that if you can get your hands on it, you use a European
butter. These butters have a higher fat content. They have a really good flavor, and
it’s really going to bump up your rice krispie treats. Now turn your stovetop
to medium low heat, and you’ll just want to stir occasionally until the butter is
melted. As you can see I had cut my butter into 6 pieces. This is just going
to help it melt faster. Now once your butter is melted, we are going to add our
marshmallows. You are going to need 15 ounces of mini marshmallows total.
Usually a bag is 10 ounces so this is one and a half bags. Now we’re only going
to be using 10 ounces for now. We’re going to save that other 5 ounces for
later. Add this into your pot. I will stir the marshmallows in with our butter
until the marshmallows are just melted. Now make sure you keep your heat below
medium when you’re doing this. If you cook your marshmallows on too high of a
heat you’re actually going to end up making them hard and your rice krispies
treats are going to be hard and brittle. Once your marshmallows are melted we are
going to stir in one teaspoon of pure vanilla extract. This vanilla flavor is another ingredient that makes these rice krispies treats extra special and extra gourmet. Now we will need our rice krispies cereal. You’re going to need 6 cups of this cereal for this recipe. We’re going to add these in with our marshmallows. And at this point, we are also going to add in our remaining five ounces of marshmallows. Now we are going to stir this until the rice krispies
treats are completely coated and all of the ingredients are combined, and that
last bit of marshmallows we just added, they should just be beginning to melt.
you really want to have distinct marshmallow pieces in these various crispy treats so you don’t want them to melt all the way. Now this step is optional, but if you would like to add sprinkles you’ll add
them now. I’m going to be adding three I’m going to be adding three tablespoons of sprinkles into my rice krispies treats. Now stir this briefly. You want to stir
it just enough so the sprinkles are evenly distributed. You don’t want to
over mix it. Sometimes the sprinkles can bleed if you do that, and as soon as the
sprinkles are nicely incorporated we are going to remove our rice krispies treats
from the heat, and we are going to pour them into a 9 by 13 pan that we’ve lined
with wax paper. Now use a spatula, or you can use your hands to just gently kind
of work down those rice krispies so that they’re nice and gently packed into the
pan. You really don’t want to overdo it here, otherwise, your rice krispies treats
will be too compacted and they’ll be tough and they’ll be hard. They’ll be too
brittle I like my rice krispies treats to be soft and chewy so don’t over pack
them. So these rice krispies treats have had about 30 minutes to cool, they’re still a little warm but I’m gonna go ahead and dig in anyway I’m
just gonna grab the wax paper it’s gonna make it easy for me to lift these out of the pan. And while just pulling pieces off of this nice rice krispies treat block would be fine I’m going to use my knife to make things a little neater. O man, this looks so good, these are still a little bit gooey, because they are still warm. Loaded with marshmallows and sprinkles, and they smell so good too, because of that vanilla and butter that we used. These are going to be great, I can’t wait to take a bite. Well that is how you make my favorite gourmet rice krispie treats. If you give this recipe a try please let me know what you think. I can’t wait to hear from you, I think you are going to love them.
