Helpful Tips

Cake Batter Rice Krispie Treats

  • Make sure to melt the marshmallows on low heat to prevent them from getting too stiff. If you are using the optional marshmallow creme, add when your regular marshmallows are about 1/2 way melted. 
  • Butter your baking dish to make removing the treats from the pan easier. I also like to butter my hands when I’m pressing the Rice Krispies into the pan. This keeps everything from sticking to my hands and my hands get a moisturizing treatment at the same time 😜.
  • Make sure to store these delicious cake batter rice krispies in an air tight container for 2-3 days. If your container is not air tight, these treats will get stale very quickly.
