How to Make Ultimate Rice Krispie Bars

Step-by-Step

  1. In a large microwave safe bowl, add marshmallows and butter, zap for 30 seconds, stir to mix, repeat at 10 second intervals until marshmallows are just melted... Do NOT over heat. I zapped three times, 1 minute 30 seconds total.
  2. Stir to mix and combine, while stirring, (OPTIONAL: add food coloring 2-3 drops at a time to get desired color). Add about 5 drops of candy flavoring (Wilton brand sells at most hobby stores in the candy section, Hobby Lobby or Michaels among others).
  3. Add the Rice Cereal to the marshmallow and butter and mix. Fold until the krispies have also become coated.

    Spread in an even layer about 1 inch thick in a parchment lined jelly roll pan or long cookie sheet. Allow to cool for a couple of hours until the treats are no longer tacky to the touch.
  4. Cut out with Cookie Cutters if you like or cut in squares. Store in plastic ware or sealed with cling wrap until ready to serve.
    OPTIONAL: Garnish with icing and colored sugar sprinkles if you like.
