I’ve always made rice crispy treats using the stove, but you can also make them using the microwave.

Do you prefer soft rice crispy treats or the extra crispy ones? You know the ones that scratch the roof of your mouth when taking a bite?

If you want to keep your rice crispy treats from getting hard, you’ll want to use low heat to melt the butter and marshmallows.

Using high heat may seem quicker, but they may not turn out as soft after cooling.

How to make them in a microwave:

Place the mini marshmallows in a large, microwave-safe bowl (I love these bowls).

Microwave the marshmallows in 45 second bursts, stirring well in between, and heating more as needed.

Then press down on the rice crispy mixture using clean, wet hands to prevent sticking.
