Table of contents
To make Rice Krispie treats you'll need:
Nonstick Pan - a good noonstick pan helps to keep your marshmallows from turning into a cleanup nightmare.
Mixing Spoon - a large, steady spoon (nonstick a plus!) is a must for this recipe.
Parchment Paper - mandatory if you want easy to release cheerios bars.
Baking dish - high walled dishes best for these treats.
Tips To Perfect Rice Krispie Treats
If you're looking for perfect soft and delicious rice krispie treats, be sure to follow my troubleshooting tips below:
Prevent Sticky Treats
- If it’s really humid, the treats might remain sticky.
- I recommend spraying the parchment paper with nonstick spray and letting the treats set in the fridge instead of on the counter.
- Coat hands with nonstick spray to prevent the mixture from sticking when you press it into the pan.
Prevent Tough, Hard Treats
- It’s important to heat the butter and marshmallows over low or medium heat because heating it over high heat can cause hard treats.
Perfect Easy Melted White Chocolate
White chocolate can sometimes be tricky to melt - it can burn, yellow, or dry out easily.
Use these tips for easy to melt white chocolate that looks great after dipping:
Melt the chocolate melting wafers in a medium flat-bottomed bowl at 30-second intervals.
Stir well between each interval, until completely melted.
I personally like to add 1 teaspoon vegetable oil to the white chocolate when melting to keep it nice and white and shiny when dried - it also helps prevent white chocolate from overcooking or drying out.
Rice Krispie Treats With Unmelted Marshmallows
By dividing the marshmallows and adding a couple of cups of them in at the end it means that they hold their shape and you get little pockets of marshmallows in the treats.
However, you can omit the extra 2 cups of marshmallows, if desired.
But DO NOT melt them in or you will get a thick marshmallow layer that settles in the bottom of the pan and treats.

- ½ cup salted butter
- 10 cups mini marshmallows, divided
- 9 cups Rice Krispies cereal
- 1.25 ounces freeze-dried raspberries, crushed
- 2 cups white chocolate melting wafers
- Sprinkles, optional
- Line a 9x13-inch baking pan with parchment paper and set aside.
- Prepare your ingredients by measuring out the marshmallows (8 cups and 2 cups divided), cereal, and freeze-dried raspberries. You will want to mix fast so it’s best that everything is ready to add in.
- Melt the butter in a large pot over low heat then add in 8 cups of mini marshmallows and stir constantly until melted.
- Remove from heat and mix in the cereal, freeze-dried raspberries, and remaining marshmallows and stir until evenly coated in the marshmallow mixture.
- Transfer the mixture to the prepared baking pan and use a piece of parchment paper between your hands and the mixture to gently press it into the pan. Don’t press too hard or the Rice Krispies treats could end up hard.
- Allow the treats to cool at room temperature for about 30 minutes before slicing.
- After slicing, melt the chocolate melting wafers in a medium flat-bottomed bowl at 30-second intervals, stirring between each one until completely melted.
- Dip the bottoms of each of the treats in the white chocolate and place on a piece of wax or parchment paper to set. If you have any excess white chocolate you can drizzle it over the top of the treats and top with sprinkles if desired.
- Let the treats cool and set for an additional 30 minutes before enjoying.
- By dividing the marshmallows and adding a couple of cups of them in at the end it means that they hold their shape and you get little pockets of marshmallows in the treats. However, you can omit the extra 2 cups of marshmallows, if desired. But DO NOT melt them in or you will get a thick marshmallow layer that settles in the bottom of the pan and treats.
- You can use aluminum foil instead of parchment paper but it is very important that you spray the aluminum foil with nonstick spray, otherwise the treats will stick to it.
- I get my freeze-dried fruit at Target or Trader Joe’s carries them too.
- Store in an airtight container at room temperature for 3 days or freeze for up to 6 months.
- I just gently crush the raspberries in the bag, no need to break out the food processor.
