It takes massive discipline not to make rice Krispie treat all the time. For starters, it takes like 5 minutes to make and you can either eat it immediately or wait for it to set. I am team both and a shameless one at that too. I have got a sweet tooth, sorry but not sorry.

Tips for making the best rice Krispy treats
- Use quality butter, I recommend French butter or any good quality butter
- Cook the marshmallow on low heat. This rice Krispy treat is ready under 10 minutes, no need to rush this gooey, chewy and yummy goodness. Use mini marshmallows because they will melt quicker than the large ones
- Rice Krispies are best eaten the same day but if you must store them, ensure you consume it within 2-3 days. Store them in the fridge, separate them with parchment paper.
- You do not need to refrigerate them to set, they can be left outside on a kitchen counter (covered with either cling film or a lid) I would be surprised if you have to worry about storing them as they tend to disappear quickly.
