The Secret Recipe Club: Rice Crispy Treats


Today is Group B’s reveal day for The Secret Recipe Club. I had no problem choosing a recipe from the blog assigned to me, Big Fat Baker. One thing we have in common is our love for dessert! She has some fantastic looking recipes but I went with the most simplest recipe on her site, rice crispy treats. She uses the basic recipe off the back of the cereal box to make her treats. She recommends to measure our everything exactly, so that way the treats come out super gooey and delicious.


You will need exactly 40 large marshmallows. I actually counted mine out and my bag had exactly 40. These treats definitely hit the spot for me. I even decorated them with the white chocolate M&Ms. Boy were they delicious. I took the rest of them to work and within an hour they were all gone!


Homemade Rice Crispy Treats
Adapted from Big Fat Baker

3 tablespoons unsalted butter
40 regular sized marshmallows
6 cups rice crispy treat cereal

In a large saucepan melt the butter over low heat. Add the marshmallows and stir until completely melted.

Using a greased or buttered spatula, stir in the cereal. Stir until fully coated and mixed. Pour into a greased or parchment lined 9x13 pan and spread evenly. Allow to cool for at least 10 minutes before cutting and serving.


And if you want to spruce up your treats, add whatever mix-in you desire. I decided to go with the white chocolate M&Ms. These were the best and so good! My favorite part is when the treats were still warm and the M&Ms were warm, they just melt in your mouth. A bit messy but well worth it!


PS: Sorry for the delay. I had to add in the blog hop and it totally messed up my entire post since I use Windows Live Writer.

I know that measuring makes them better, I don't always do that and they are often too full of krispies and not ooey gooey. These look great!

These are cute with the mnm's and look very "easter-y" I'm stopping by from SRC but be sure to stop by Seasonal Potluck this month. We have peas AND rhubarb link parties open! We'd love if you'd share any recipes you may have

I loved your recipe for the Pecan and Goat cheese chicken. It's a keeper. Looks like you're a rice krispie fan, two recipes in a row! These look delicious.
