Rice Krispie Squares

 

This Rice Krispie Squares recipe is one my mother used to make for my sister and I when we were growing up.  They were and still are one of my favourite treats, since they are absolutely delicious and also very easy to make.  What makes these Rice Krispie Squares exceptional is the addition of vanilla extract, which gives them a hint of vanilla flavour, and additional mini marshmallows, which makes them extra gooey and pretty.  For a variation, you can decorate the tops of the squares with mini chocolate chips or confetti sprinkles.

 

 

 

 

 

Tips for Making Perfect Rice Krispie Squares

 

  1. Do not burn the marshmallows: When melting the marshmallows, use medium-low heat and stir constantly, scraping the bottom of the pot, to prevent burning.
  2. Quickly combine: Once the rice krispies/marshmallows have been added to the melted marshmallows fold the mixture quickly as the melted marshmallows will start setting.
  3. Gently combine: When combining the rice krispies/marshmallows with the melted marshmallows, fold the mixture gently to avoid crushing the rice krispies.
  4. Make airy squares: Do not press down the Rice Krispie Square mixture down too much when spreading it in the prepared pans.  This will make the squares dense as opposed to airy.
