  • 4 tbsp good quality salted butter
  • 4 cups of mini marshmallow
  • 5 cups rice krispies cereal
  • 2 tbsp melted dark chocolate optional


  • Line a pan with parchment paper and set aside. Alternatively, use any deep pan, line with parchment paper or spray with some fry light.
  • Place a pan on medium heat, add the butter to melt. 
    Followed by the mini marshmallow, stir it into the melted butter and continue to stir till it is all melted.
  • Take it off the heat and stir in the rice krispies cereal until they are well combined
  • Pour the mixture into the prepared tin and press for an even layer (I used parchment paper to press this down) drizzle the melted chocolate on the rice Krispies treat
  • Leave to cool for at least 10 minutes before cutting. Serve and enjoy
