Easy rice krispie treats recipe, homemade with simple ingredients. Ooey gooey, fluffy, airy, loaded with marshmallows, butter, vanilla and rice cereal.
Heat a large nonstick pot over medium-low heat.
Add butter and let it melt.
Once it has fully melted, add marshmallows. Keep 1 cup marshmallows aside!
Keep stirring gently until marshmallows are melted.
Remove from heat and mix in vanilla extract.
Then, add cereal and remaining marshmallows and mix gently until fully coated. You will have little chunks of partially melted marshmallows. That's perfectly normal!
Dump this mixture on a baking tray (Dimensions: 9x13), lined with wax paper that's been lightly sprayed with oil.
Spread the mixture evenly in the tray with a spatula. Gently press it down with the back of a spatula but don't use too much force. Also, be sure to grease the spatula so that it doesn't stick to the ooey gooey cereal mixture.
Let it cool at room temperature for 45 minutes- 1 hour.
Then, use a sharp knife to cut square pieces. Enjoy!
