Ooy gooey Rice crispy squares. This was a favourite treat of mine from my childhood. This was probabaly one of the first desserts I learned how to make. Super easy and fun, plus delicious, equals must learn how to make! I'm not sure the exact age I was when I first made these on my own, but I would guess around 10. So if you are not a baker but still love desserts, then this is the treat for you.


  • Dip a butter knife in water for smoothing the top of your squares down. The water helps prevent the knife from sticking.

  • Be sure to remove the pan from the heat before adding the rice crispy cereal. If it gets too hot you may find your squares become quite hard once cooled.

  • Cover right away after spreading into your pan. If they do not get covered they will become stale and hard.


1 Bag Mini Marshmallows (400g)

6 Cups Rice Crispys

1/4 Cup Butter plus extra to coat baking dish.

1 Tbsp Vanilla Extract

Melted butter and Marshmallows stirred into rice cereal
