Servings 18 squares
- 1 stick (8 tablespoons) unsalted butter plus more for greasing the baking dish
- 20 ounces (2 packages) marshmallows
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
- 10 cups crispy rice cereal
- 1 cup mini chocolate chips
Grease a 9″ x 13″ baking dish with butter or cooking spray and set it aside. In a large saucepan, melt the butter over low heat. Once melted, add the marshmallows. Using a rubber spatula, stir the marshmallows continuously until they have completely melted, about 10 minutes. Stir in the vanilla extract and salt.
1 stick (8 tablespoons) unsalted butter, 20 ounces (2 packages) marshmallows, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
Remove the pan from the heat and stir the crispy rice cereal into the marshmallow mixture. Mix thoroughly until the cereal is well coated in marshmallow sauce. Quickly mix in half of the chocolate chips (they will likely melt, but that’s okay).
10 cups crispy rice cereal, 1 cup mini chocolate chips
Dump the mixture into a greased baking dish and, using a piece of greased parchment or wax paper, press down on the crispy rice mixture to spread it evenly in the pan. Sprinkle the remaining chocolate chips over the top of the rice krispie treats and press them in. Allow the treats to cool before slicing and serving.
- Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months. Defrost before serving.
