S’mores Rice Krispy Treats – Tips
One of the great things about this recipe is that in order to make the s’mores rice krispy treats gooey and soft, you have to melt the butter and marshmallows in the microwave. If you melt them on your stove top, they will dry out. I know it sounds crazy, but just trust me on this one.
S’mores Rice Krispy Treats – Kraft Jet-Puffed Mallow Bites
Another tip I have for you is that in order to get the true ooey gooey goodness, it is best to let the rice krispies set up for an hour or so. If you are like me and can’t wait that long, you can place them in the fridge for 30 minutes. I have found the ingredient Kraft Jet Puffed Mallow Bites at Walmart and Target by the hot chocolate section. These make the s’mores rice krispy treats the best!
