Next-Level Rice Crispy Treats
Next-level rice crispy treats!! Made with double the marshmallows and a secret ingredient these make for the ultimate afterschool (or anytime) snacks.
Yield: 12 servings
  • ½ cup (113 g) unsalted butter
  • 2 10-oz bags mini marshmallows, divided
  • ¾ tsp kosher salt
  • 4 oz (113 g) high quality white chocolate, coarsely chopped
  • ¾ tsp vanilla bean paste
  • 8 cups (256 g) crispy rice cereal
  1. Grease a 9x13-inch baking pan with baking spray, dabbing away any excess with a paper towel. Set aside.
  2. In a large heavy-bottomed pot, melt the butter over medium-low heat. Once melted, add in one and a half bags of the mini marshmallows and the salt. Stir to combine until the marshmallows are almost completely melted. Add in the white chocolate and stir until smooth. Add in the vanilla and stir again to combine.
  3. Decrease the heat to low and add in the rice cereal. Stir until completely combined, then add in the remaining marshmallows. Continue to mix just until the marshmallows are starting to melt but are still mostly whole.
  4. Remove the pan from the heat and quickly pour the mixture into the prepared pan. Use an offset spatula to pat it into an even layer. Set aside to cool for at least 45 minutes, then cut into squares and serve.
