The Easiest Rice Krispies Treats

The Easiest Rice Krispies Treats

Sweet, satisfying cereal treats have never been easier! Melt marshmallows and butter, toss with your favorite cereal, press into a square and serve. Or, don’t! We definitely approve of eating warm marshmallow treats straight from the Anyday dish.

All of Anyday’s recipes are tested (and retested!) in many different microwaves and home kitchens to make sure they work — and work well.


Select your microwave wattage in the dropdown. The cook times in this recipe will automatically change accordingly.

To find your microwave’s wattage, look at the front panel, the side of the door, in the back, in the user manual, or Google the model number. If both an input and output wattage are listed, use the output.

Wattage translates to how powerful the microwave is. The higher the wattage, the faster your food will cook. The lower the wattage, the longer the cook time.

When in doubt, start with less time — you can always add more.
