Tips for Making Perfect Rice Krispie Treats

– Be sure to melt marshmallows on low heat. Otherwise, your treats may end up hard, crunchy and dry.

– Use any type of square and/or rectangular pan. The smaller the pan, the thicker the treats. The larger the pan, the thinner the treats.

– If you prefer to press the mixture into the pan with your hands, spray them with cooking spray first for no sticky mess!
