Rice Krispie Treats

Sharing is caring!

This is my go-to recipe when I need to have a quick snack for my daughter’s friends, class, 4-H group, or anything else she might need to be the snack person for. These Rice Krispie Treats are always a hit too. There is always an empty pan to bring back home.

Fund Raising with Rice Krispies

My daughter is part of 4-H and they have an annual fund raising auction where the children bring toys, baked goods, or even a handmade item to be auctioned off. We bring rice krispies wrapped in plastic – half the pan. It is generally one of the top grossing sales of the evening. The funny thing is that even the adults are bidding on them and the winners often start eating them before they leave for the evening.

5 Minute Microwave Recipe

There have been times where I have had just over an hour to get home from work, pick up my daughter, still make the snack and get to our meeting. It generally takes me 40 minutes to get home from work and the meeting we need to get to takes 20 minutes. This leaves very little time to get something made. Of course, planning ahead and making something the night before or morning before would have been the thing to do; however, when you work 12 hour days and farm with your husband, sleep can call your name louder than planning ahead sometimes. When I’m in a hurry, it is pretty close to 5 minutes when making these rice krispies. Then they are warm and gooey, which the little ones like even better.

Rice Krispie Treat Recipe

5 minutes to gooey goodness.

main ingredients


  1. Melt butter in a large plastic bowl.
  2. I normally do this in the plastic bowl in the microwave 35-40 seconds. Add the marshmallows and stir to coat with the butter.
  3. Microwave 3 minutes.
  4. Pour in the Rice Krispies and stir to incorporate. (making sure to spray the spoon with the Pam spray too)
  5. Spray a large serving size spoon with Pam to reduce sticking when you stir. Put mixture in a 13X9 pan that has been sprayed with Pam.
  6. Press down with either waxed paper or a tablespoon sprayed with Pam. Cut into desired squares. I use the spoon sprayed with Pam. Warning, the pan will be full nearly to the top. But that is okay because it makes a big rice krispie treat.

Enjoy! Many times at our house, this has been 5 minutes and we are back out the door. So good though.
