Classic Rice Crispy Treats

The Best Classic Rice Crispy Treats recipe with the perfect ratio of butter, marshmallow and rice cereal.

Classic Rice Crispy Treats

Some things are meant to be left uncomplicated, like this classic dessert. This is my no fail perfect ratio of gooey goodness that puts a smile on most everyone’s face.

Recently, I posted the picture below on my Instagram account. I had just whipped up a batch of treats and literally scrambled to get them into my little ones mouths, in hopes that the tantrums would stop. Everyone was just in a foul mood that afternoon, but these seemed to settle the air a bit. Relief, the kiddos were smiling and indulged in their treats, it left me feeling recharged to survive whatever tantrum broke out next. All while praying bed time would come quickly that evening so that I could indulge in all the rice crispy treats my heart desired (paired with a glass of wine of course).

Then last month I posted on Facebook this recipe pictured below for Corn Flake Treats. Corn Flake Treats puts a simple and delicious spin on a already delicious and classic treat. Again not complicating but elevating the texture a bit, just to change it up. Currently I can not pick which version is my favorite because it just depends on my mood. Rice Crispy treats are a bit lighter texture, where I find the Corn Flake Treats have a bit more chewy texture, with the cinnamon adding a nice balance of flavor.

Corn Flake Treats

Only decision left! Which delicious Crispy treats you should make? You can’t go wrong in my opinion 🙂
