Have you ever made more Rice Krispie Treats than you needed? If so and you want to have more for later, you need to learn about freezing Rice Krispie Treats.
How to freeze Rice Krispie Treats
So you have your pan (or multiple pans) of Rice Krispie Treats and you want to save them for later. What do you do? You freeze them!
Once your batch has cooled enough to cut, you simply cut them into your desired squares. You want to make sure your Rice Krispie Treats are not hot anymore. Once they go in the freezer, excess heat will cause condensation and can make the treats get frostbite.
Take your squares and place them inside the freezer bag until it is full. Carefully squeeze as much air out of the bag as you can and seal the zipper. Now, stick the bag in your freezer.
Why would I want to freeze Rice Krispie Treats?
You can decide on freezing Rice Krispie Treats for myriad of reasons. The obvious reason being, you want to save them for later.
Maybe you like to meal prep and preserve foods to use at later dates. If that is the case, you may want to freeze desserts too.
One reason we decided to try it out is to help us exercise a little more self control when it comes to snacking. While you can eat a frozen Rice Krispie Treat, we do not advise it. It is super hard and can really hurt if it scrapes the inside of year mouth. Also, your dentist is going to be doubly disappointed in you if you break a tooth WHILE eating sweets.
How long can I keep Rice Krispie Treats frozen?
The official Kellog website recommends freezing no longer than 6 weeks. We have found that you can freeze closer to 6 months without a significant decrease in flavor or quality.
How do I thaw my frozen Rice Krispie Treats?
This is just as easy as freezing them. Just take them out of the freezer. Sit them on a plate on the counter for about 15 minutes or so and you will have a thawed and delicious treat.
