The Perfect Rice Krispie Squares

There’s no better way to head into the weekend then with a recipe for the BEST Rice Krispie Squares ever!


Now I know what you’re thinking– seriously, a recipe for Rice Krispie Squares?! But let me tell you, even this simple dessert can be made wrong! Haven’t you ever bit into a Rice Krispie square that was so rock solid that you almost broke a tooth?! I know I have!


Never fear, I have tested & perfected this Rice Krispie square recipe 🙂

Normally, on the side of the Rice Krispie box, it gives you recipe for their version of Rice Krispie squares. It called for “3 tablespoons” of butter. This is where the problem starts… You need a bit more butter, and a bit more marshmellow to get that perfectly gooey & soft Rice Krispie Square.


Try this version of my Rice Krispie Squares out– I promise you won’t be disappointed 🙂 !
