Best Rice Krispie Treats - The Southern Lady Cooks

These are the Best Rice Krispie Treats! They are so easy to make and absolutely delicious. They take ooey to the next level and because they combine marshmallow fluff and marshmallows! Definitely add these to your next gathering, so simple to make and never any left.

Best Rice Krispie Treats Ingredients Needed:

Rice Krispie Cereal


Marshmallow Fluff

Vanilla Extract

Peanut Butter

Salted Butter

As you can see, you only need a few things and they are simple ingredients but these little treats are the best! I use salted butter because I don’t add any salt to the recipe. Don’t have salted butter, no problem use unsalted butter but still add a pinch of salt when melting.

You can line your baking pan with parchment paper if you desire, but I just spray mine and had no issue with these sticking. With the addition of the marshmallow fluff in this recipe these treats stay soft and delicious. I think the marshmallow fluff is a must!
