Classic Ooy gooey Rice crispy squares! This was a favorite treat of mine from my childhood. Made simply with just marshmallows, butter and rice crispy's. This was probably 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.
TIPS AND TRICKS:
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
Prepare a rectangular baking dish by coating it with butter. Have a cup large enouph to fit a butter knife in, filled with water. Set aside with your baking dish.
In a large non stick pot, add you butter and vanilla extract. Melt over medium heat.
Once butter is melted, add your marssmallows and (gently) stir constantly over medium heat until fully melted.
Remove from heat and add in your Rice crispy, folding it all together.
Pour into you prepared dish, then press it into your pan using a butter knife dipped in water to prevent the knife from sticking.
Cover right away and allow to cool before cutting.
Store in a covered container at room temperature. Enjoy.
Whether it's Sweet or Savoury, let it be made with love!
