Tips on how to make the BEST Rice Krispy Treats:
*Fresh is BEST! Don’t try to use those stale marshmallows you may have in the back of your pantry! Fresh marshmallows end up making hard and crunchy treats, which aren’t near as good as the ooey gooey type! Buy a fresh bag before making these!
*Store these bars in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
*If you add in a few extra marshmallows, it’ll add a bit extra chewiness, which everyone will love!
*Do NOT refrigerate these as they will become quite hard.
*Use Lucky Charms cereal in place of Rice Krispies for a fun St. Patrick’s Day twist.
*You can add in some M & M’s, crushed Oreo, or Reese cups to these for an added variation!
