Tips for the best lucky charms rice krispie treats

Rice Krispie treats are one of the easiest desserts to make at home, but I like to consider myself somewhat of a rice krispie treats expert. These are my three fail proof tips for getting perfectly soft and gooey rice krispie treats every time.

  1. Don’t overcook the marshmallows. This is the worst mistake you can make when it comes to making rice krispie treats. If you cook the marshmallows for too long they’ll get SUPER sticky, which can make your bars almost painfully chewy (it will still be delicious, but it will give you a jaw workout
  2. Work quickly. The only tricky thing about marshmallow bars is that they can get sticky and hard to work with real fast if the melted marshmallows start to harden. I recommend working quickly so that it’s easy to fold everything together and get it into your pan!
  3. Press a few extra Lucky Charms marshmallows on top of your bars.Β The magical marshmallows in Lucky Charms can get a little smooshy looking after all that folding and coating with marshmallow business. I like to press a few extra marshmallows on top of the lucky charms rice krispies solely for presentation purposes! But they are also tasty πŸ™‚

Happy baking, my friends!

  1. Can’t wait to make these… using my cheerios! Can they be made using mini marshmallows too?
