5 Tips for Baking with Rice Krispies
Before we dig into our favorite Rice Krispie recipes, I wanted to provide a few tips to ensure your treats turn out perfectly every single time. While Rice Krispie recipes are typically pretty easy to make, the process can be messy and sticky and your finished product can end up rock hard if you aren’t careful. These Rice Krispie hacks will save you time and effort, and your dessert will turn out nice and gooey.
1. Line your baking sheet with parchment paper
This will ensure your Rice Krispie treats don’t stick to your baking sheet, and will also allow you to transfer everything to your kitchen counter or cutting board once they are ready to be cut into squares!
2. Use more marshmallows than the recipe calls for
When making Rice Krispie treats, remember that your ingredients should be completely covered in melted marshmallows. If you overmeasure your dry ingredients (or add to the recipe in any way), you will probably need to add more marshmallows to your mixture, so make sure you have enough on hand!
3. Melt butter and marshmallows on low heat
Melting your ingredients too quickly will result in rock hard Rice Krispie treats, so take your time and use the lowest heat setting on your stovetop.
4. Grease your spatula
This will help prevent your Rice Krispie treats from sticking to your spatula as you are pouring the mixture and molding it into your baking sheet.
5. Refrigerate before cutting
While it may be tempting to dig right into your Rice Krispie treats once they’re ready, a little time in the fridge will make it easier to cut them into squares.
