Perfect Gooey Rice Krispie Treats

Best-Ever Rice Krispie Treats are an easy, quick treat that's perfect for picnics, to make a typical day special and as a dessert for any of the summer holidays. These aren't your usual treats -- they are extra gooey with the perfect amount of marshmallow. Plus, I add two secret ingredients that are so simple, yet make them the best you've ever tasted. One of the secret ingredients adds the fun color, which you can change up depending on the holiday or what color the kids pick that day.

Rice Krispie Treats always remind me of being a kid. As a mom, it's an easy special snack I can throw together in a few minutes that also doesn't cost very much. Best of all, what kid turns these down? Even my kids don't!

  1. Love the idea of using colored sugar sprinkles instead of food coloring. Food coloring can be messy when you have two eager helpers like I do. Can't wait to try this.

  2. I LOVE rice krispie treats!! I just wish they would stay soft for more than 1 or 2 days (if we are lucky) since we don't binge eat the whole pan.

  3. Omg!!! Can we say yum?!?! I just love rice Krispy treats

  4. Hm, I guess I have to try that out on my weekend.


Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment. As a busy mom, I'm not always able to respond to each one, though I read and appreciate them all.
