Did you know you can make Rice Krispie Treats WITHOUT melting marshmallows? Let us show you how to make marshmallow fluff Rice Krispie Treats.
How to Make Marshmallow Fluff Rice Krispie Treats
So, why would you want to use marshmallow fluff instead of a regular bag of marshmallows? Maybe your grocery store is out of marshmallows. Maybe you already have a jar of fluff for Fluffer-Nutters sandwiches (are you thinking Fluffer-Nutter Rice Krispie Treats? I know I am!).
Marshmallow fluff is easy to use, takes less time to mix with butter and Rice Krispies, and why not use it? You can quickly use it to make Original Rice Krispie Treats, Cocoa Krispie Treats, Lucky Charms Cereal Bars, or any other number of snacks.
Take out your trusty large stock pot and melt 1 tablespoon of butter on medium heat. Once your butter is melted, you will want to scoop your jar of marshmallow fluff into the pot with the melted butter. Stir until everything is mixed together well and reduce the heat to low or medium-low.
Just like a regular pack of marshmallows, you will not want to over heat the fluff. It will also become stiff and not pliable enough to mix Rice Krispies in easily.
When you have a good melty marshmallow mess (say that 5 times fast) dump in your 6 measured cups of Rice Krispies. Use your spatula and mix everything together. Continue mixing until all of the cereal is covered in marshmallows.
Scoop your Rice Krispie Treat mix from the stock pot and into the baking pan. Flatten your mix unto the bottom of your pan with a spatula. The batter should fill the entire bottom of the pan.
Set your Rice Krispie Treats to the side and allow to cool. Once your marshmallow fluff Rice Krispie Treats have cooled you can cut them. Take a sharp knife and cut them into squares. We typically get 15-16 squares oer batch.
Serve and enjoy!
