The Best Rice Krispie Treats Ever
- 4 Tablespoon of unsalted butter
- 1 Pinch of salt
- 13 oz. Fluff
- 8 cups of Rice Krispies Cereal
- Note: Prepare 9" by 13" pan with parchment paper
- Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat until melted.
- Then add the Fluff and a pinch of salt then stir until the Fluff is smooth. I like to transfer the hot mixture to a metal mixing bowl, but you can mix in the saucepan.
- Add the 2 cups of the cereal to the mixture at a time and mix.
- Then place cereal and Fluff mixture into your prepared pan and press down evenly.
- Cool for 45 minutes.
- Use your parchment paper to lift the treats from the pan and place on the cutting board. Using a serrated knife cut into 12 squares. Serve and enjoy!
Prepare the Pan
To make removing the Rice Krispie Treats easy, I like to line the pan with parchment paper, making sure that the paper’s length extends up the side of the pan on the ends.
After melting the butter, I add the Fluff and stir just until it is blended. Don’t over stir or cook.
