Marshmallow Rice Krispie Squares

Today is the latest instalment from our adventures baking in the kitchen. Another very simple, but messy recipe. Marshmallow Rice Krispie Squares. I much prefer the marshmallow to the chocolate version, but I can’t remember ever actually making any myself. So this was a first for me, and I didn’t realise just how sticky the mixture was going to be.

Ingredients

  • 45g butter
  • 300g mini marshmallows
  • 180g rice krispies
Ingredients
Ingredients

Method

  • Melt the butter in a large saucepan on low heat. My advice is the largest saucepan you’ve got, for when it’s time for the Rice Krispies.
  • Add the marshmallows and cook gently until they are completely melted and blended, stirring constantly.
  • Take the pan off the heat and immediately add the cereal, mixing lightly until well coated.
  • Press the mixture into a greased square tin, and the flatten. The mixture is incredibly sticky, which is either fun or a nightmare, depending on your persuasion. We only had small tins, so spread the mixture over 2 tins.
  • Let the marshmallow crispy squares cool completely in the tin and then cut them into squares.

Pink Marshmallow Rice Krispie Squares

There you have the finished Marshmallow Rice Krispie Squares, a great treat from just 3 ingredients. You might notice a slight pink colour too ours, as we used pink & white marshmallows. Lily was particularly happy with the colour, I was happy with the taste! These really are one of my favourites.

We are really enjoying making cakes at the moment, so myself, Jack and Lily are getting a list of possibly 20 of the best cakes. That we think we can make, and will make it a post, eventually making them all. So there will be a link to the recipe of each one, that’s the plan. Sounds easy when I say it. If anyone has any recommendations of good bakes to do with kids, we are open to suggestions. Leave a comment below.

      They were my favourite as a kid, and they are still near the top of the list now 😀

    So simple and easy. I am vegan and sadly marshmallows are made with gelatin, but you can buy vegan ‘Freedom Mallows’ in a few shops so I am going to make this using them. Yuuuum! Might even add some dark chocolate chips too.

      I didn’t know you could get vegan marshmallows, though they do seem to have an alternative for everything these days. Chocolate chips would go great 😊

      Yeah, I sometimes buy the Kellogg’s ones, can’t beat it homemade though 😊

    I still love crunchy, sweet rice krispie bars, though it has been a long time since I have had them! This takes me back to reading a book and eating a bar and trying not to get the pages sticky. 🙂

    I much prefer marshmallow krispies to chocolate krispies too – although I’ve never made them, only eaten them! These look yummy, as well as lots of fun to eat. 20 recipes sounds good too – I’d recommend Nutella twists with shop-bought puff pastry: quick, easy, and delicious! Lisa

    I haven’t had a rice krispie treat in forever, but they’re a favorite of mine too. But yes, soooo messy and sticky to make LOL. I will have to try them with my kiddos at some point.

      I kept having to eat the mixture off of my hand, as that was the only way to get it off….obviously 👀🤣
