Crushing Oreos in a ziplock bag

Step 2 – Crush Oreos – Place the Oreos in a large ziplock bag and gently crush them into large chunks with a rolling pin. 

Marshmallows in a bowl with melted butter

Step 3 – Melt Butter and Marshmallows – Melt the butter and cups of mini marshmallows in a large microwave safe bowl.  Heat it in 30 second increments and stir between each one until fully meted.  You can also melt in a large saucepan over medium heat.

Mix in Rice Krispie cereal to the melted marshmallows

Step 4 – Mix in Cereal – Once it’s melted, mix in the Rice Krispie cereal until completely coated.

Stir in crushed Oreos into the cereal mixture

Step 5 – Mix in Chopped Oreos – Fold in the crushed Oreos into the melted marshmallow mixture. 

  • Step 6 – Spread into Pan – Spread evenly into the prepared pan.  Use a piece of wax to press the Rice Krispies into the bottom of the pan. 
  • Step 7 – Spray Wax Paper – I spray the wax paper with a non-stick spray so that it doesn’t stick to the wax paper. 
  • Step 8 – Serve and Enjoy – Allow to cool completely before serving.  Slice, serve and enjoy.

Recipe Tips

  • Thinner Treats – You can make half of this batch for thinner rice krispie treats. We love thick rice krispie treats but you make what you prefer!
  • Do not store in the refrigerator. They are best left to cool at room temperature so that the remain gooey and delicious.
  • Don’t skip the parchment paper. This helps with cleanup and makes it so easy. To easily lift treats out of the pan, use parchment paper.
  • Use Fresh Ingredients – When making these treats always use fresh marshmallows and cereal. The treats will taste better and last a lot longer.
  • Vanilla Extract – Adding vanilla extract adds so much flavor to these treats
  • Gently Press into Pan – Make sure to use your hands or spatula to press into pan so the treats remain soft.

What are my Rice Krispie Treats falling apart?

The most common cause is using too many marshmallows. This will cause them to be soft and fall apart.

Resist the urge to add extra marshmallows because the results will not be the same. We recommend following the recipe as listed. This ensure that your adding the right amount of marshmallows and cereal.

Another culprit is too much cereal that causes the mixture to be dry. This will make the recipe crumble and fall apart.

How Long do they Last?

If you store the rice krispie treats in a container, they will last about 3-4 days. Ours never last that long though because we eat them so fast. Also, use wax paper in between the treats to keep them from sticking.

Frequently Asked Questions

How to Store

Do not store in the refrigerator. They are best left to cool at room temperature so that the remain gooey and delicious.
Store any leftover Rice Krispie treats in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 week. If on a cookie tray cover with plastic wrap.

Can you Freeze Rice Krispy Treats?

I do not recommend freezing this recipe. It will change the texture of the final product and cause it to harden.

Why do my Rice Crispy Treats get Hard?

When melting the butter and marshmallows, we recommend melting over low heat. Heating this mixture over high heat or too fast causes the mixture to make the treats hard.
