Rice Crispy Treats
Let’s look into the materials and the preparation procedure, which are all covered below.
- 1/2 cup/113 grams, preferably European-style, unsalted butter + additional for grating
- 1 bag of marshmallows (12 ounces/340 grams) (preferably standard size)
- 5 grams/ 1¼ tablespoons of kosher salt
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- Rice krispies cereal in 6 cups (180 grams)
Follow the simple steps to make this recipe.
Coat a baking dish with butter.
The butter should foam after about 3 minutes of melting it over medium heat in a big pot. Turn the heat down to low and cook, turning frequently with a rubber spatula, till the bubbling ends and the little bits of milk solids start to become golden, another two or three minutes.
At this point, keep an eye out for the milk solids, which should change from golden to just a medium brown but not completely black.
To prevent the butter from continuing to cook, immediately reduce the temperature and stir in the marshmallows. For approximately a minute, stir to thoroughly coat all of the marshmallows with the warm, browned butter as they start to soften.
Turn down the heat, add the salt, and whisk for an additional 1 to 2 minutes, or until the marshmallows seem to be nearly smooth. You just want the marshmallows to gently melt equally and slowly at this point, softening completely without coming to a boil.
If you give the sugars much more heat, they may caramelize, and the rice krispies treats may turn out to be harder.
Turn the heat off. Add the vanilla and mix. Using a silicone brush, fold the mixture over the cereal after adding it, coating it completely.
Fill the baking pan with the mixture. Spread the cereal out to cover the pan by gently pushing and pulling it with the spatula.
Top the cookies while they are still warm with flaky salt and rainbow sprinkles, if desired. Before cutting, let it cool for a minimum of thirty minutes to set.
When cool, take out of the pan and place on a cutting board. Slice it into squares using a sharp knife. Up to 5 days is the ideal storage period for treats when kept at room temperature in an airtight container. Enjoy.
Overall, rice crispy treats are a quick and easy dessert that will fulfill your sweet taste. They are simple to create and can be tailored to your preferences, making them an ideal treat for any occasion.
