Bakery Style Crispy Rice Treats

This childhood favorite is extra buttery with pops of marshmallows throughout which create a beautiful soft texture. 


  • 1 stick butter
  • 3 10oz bags mini marshmallows
  • 12 c crispy rice cereal
  • pinch of sea salt


  1. Prepare a large, deep dish pan (a roasting pan or lasagna pan) by spraying it with nonstick spray (you can also put a piece of parchment on the bottom to ensure the treats won't stick). 
  2. Measure out the cereal into a large bowl and set aside.
  3. In a large stock pot on medium heat, add the butter and begin to melt. 
  4. Once fully melted, fold in 2 1/2 bags of marshmallows using a wooden spoon or heatproof spatula
  5. Once the marshmallows are coated in the butter, keep stirring until the marshmallows are fully melted. The mixture should be completely smooth. 
  6. Pour the cereal into the pot and gently fold the mixture together. Add the remaining 1/2 bag of marshmallows. 
  7. Once the mixture is totally combined, pour it into the prepared pan. 
  8. Spray your hands with nonstick spray and push the cereal mixture evenly into the pan. 
  9. Allow to set for at least an hour. Cut into huge squares.

I like to use a large pan with high sides to create huge squares. I find a lasagna pan works best.
