The basics of making Rice Krispies treats are simple. Here's how it goes:
  • Over low, low heat, melt the butter in a pot
  • Once it's melted, add the marshmallows
  • Still with low heat, stir the marshmallows until thoroughly melted and cook another minute
  • Turn off heat
  • Stir in cereal
  • Transfer to buttered pan
  • Cover with wax paper and press down
  • Let cool for 20 minutes and cut it up
If you've made Rice Krispies treats before, all of this should be familiar. I just want to emphasize the low heat. The flame should just tickle the bottom of the pan. Be patient, it still doesn't take that long.

Extra: For easy clean-up, just soak the pot in hot water and give it a few minutes

With the technique down, let's make some treats!
