Enjoy the gooiest and best rice krispie treats! The trick is extra marshmallows added at the end.
I love rice krispie treats. I mean, what could be better than a crispy cereal covered in a gooey mixture of butter and marshmallow?
Pin these rice krispie treats for later!
We had some friends over to watch the super bowl last week, and one of our friends is allergic to dairy and eggs, so I have a harder time finding treats I can make that she can eat. But as long as I buy dairy free margarine (something like Earth Balance Light) and use that instead of butter she can have these delicious rice krispie treats.
These are the best rice krispie treats I have ever had, because they are sooo gooey! The trick is to keep the heat fairly low on the stove so that the marshmallows don’t burn, and then we also add extra marshmallows at the end so that you get little bites of marshmallow throughout the rice krispie treats!
The Best Rice Krispie Treats
- 1/4 cup butter or margarine
- 6 1/2 cups mini marshmallows divided
- 6 cups rice krispie cereal
- Melt your butter or margarine over medium low heat in a large sauce pan.
- Add in 5 cups of marshmallows, and stir together till marshmallows are completely melted.
- Pour in your rice krispie cereal and remaining 1 and 1/2 cups mini marshmallows and stir together till cereal is completely coated.
- Pour cereal into a 9x13 in pan and press down evenly. (Don't squish too much!)
- Allow to set for a little bit to cool.
Enjoy the gooiest and best rice krispie treats!

Most vegetarians won’t eat Krispy Treats because of the marshmallows and the difficulty in finding them without gelatin in the ingredients…would like to see an alternative recipe.
Aimee Berrett says
Cheryl, I believe that marshmallow fluff/creme is vegetarian. It does not contain any gelatin and that would be a fine substitute for regular marshmallows.
You mean VEGANS?
Vegetarians still eat animal products such as cheese. They wouldn’t have an issue with gelatin.
Order some VEGAN marshmallows from Amazon!
I know some vegetarians who also don’t eat gelatin. But those marshmallows on amazon sound like a great substitute!

I love love love cake on my birthday
Happy Blog Birthday!!! Love this rice krispie treat!
I’m not a huge dessert person, but on my birthday I love to eat my other favorite foods–crab salad and pizza with hot sauce. Once a few years ago I bought myself ice-cream sandwiches to celebrate. Silly, I know, but it’s the little things. 🙂 Otherwise I think my all-time favorite sweet is Pumpkin Chocolate Chip cookies. A friend recently gave me her recipe to make them with oats, and since I love pretty much anything with oats, I really love those. I have to make them and give them away, otherwise I will go on a pccc-diet until they’re gone, haha. But I actually do love rice krispie treats. They don’t have the same kind of marshmallows here where I live (I’ve only ever seen strawberry or vanilla flavored–not the same), but I’ll look around to see if I can make these soon. My Young Women’s would love them!

How exciting that it is your blog birthday! Way to go girl!
On my birthday I love DQ ice cream cake. Maybe it is the ex-DQ manager in me but I love them. For my 30th my hubby went to DQ and ordered one as a surprise a week early. When he went to go pick it up they hadn’t even made it. They have to make them a few days before so they are frozen and won’t melt on your plate. He was so bugged because he had even PAID for it ahead of time. He insisted they would make it AND deliver it to my surprise party. They delivered it from Provo (by BYU) to north Orem. It was super soft AND was missing the chocolate crunch layer that goes in the middle. 🙁 We we literally spooning the ice cream out of the box. So sad….but still so good.

Oh my goodness, I would be so mad! Glad you still enjoyed it though. We love DQ too. The new one in Orem is like a 15 minute walk from our house, so dangerous!
