Rice Krispies Treats are a classic snack. I have loved them since childhood. My husband and I still love these as adults. Now there are a variety of flavors available, but nothing is quite as delicious as the original crunchy, marshmallow treat.

Making your own crispy treats is even better, and much more cost-effective. All you need is a few simple ingredients. The best part? The recipe is incredibly easy and with just a little adult supervision, your kids can make these!

Here's what you need.

Prep time: 5 min
Cook time: 10 min
Ready in: 15 min
Yields: Approximately 12 Crispy Treat Bars


  • 1 Box Crisp Rice Cereal
  • 1 Package Large Marshmallows
  • 4 Tablespoons Butter, I like Country Crock.
  • Cooking Spray

  3. Slowly add in marshmallows.
  4. Continue stirring until the marshmallows and butter are completely melted.
