Tips for Making Rice Krispies Treats:

  • I like to use Mini Marshmallows instead of regular size. I feel like the heat is better distributed with the mini marshmallows and they melt quicker
  • I only use fresh out of the bag marshmallows. When I have used older marshmallows, my treats turn harder faster and are not easy to work with
  • When decorating your treats, work fast while the marshmallow in the treat is still warm. It will act as a glue
  • If decorations are not sticking, use a little dab of cake frosting to help glue them to the treat

  • If your marshmallow treats have cooled too much the nose might not stick. Just grab a little marshmallow from the saucepan and use that as glue


  • I like to use mini marshmallows for this recipe
  • *use fresh marshmallows from a new bag – I find that if the marshmallows are stale, the treats become stale very quick and are harder to work with
