Rice Krispie Treats, Fast Recipe

I just made this recipe (well, times four, since it was for all the ladies going to our retreat). And it was easy! I used my scale instead of cup-measurements, since it’s extra fast that way.

Easy- Microwave Ingredients for Large Recipe Rice Krispie Treats!This is a quick, easy recipe for making a treat fast. So… maybe it won’t make “The Most Healthy Desserts” list. But…it’s a real crowd-pleaser.

This makes 12 or so bars, but I quadrupled the recipe for the large crowd we had a retreat.


  • 1 lb. marshmallows
  • 1/2 c. + 1 TBS. butter (.28 lb.)
  • 15 oz. box cereal minus 4 c. (.64 lb., or 6 c.)

In a large, microwaveable bowl, microwave for a minute or two, until butter has melted and marshmallows melt in as the mix is stirred. Use: > 1 lb. marshmallows > 1 stick + 1 TBS. butter

Last, add: > 6 c. Rice Krispie-style cereal

Butter hands, then pat mixture into 15 x 12” buttered dish (or cookie sheet with sides). Let set up for an hour or so, then cut into pieces.
