Tips For Making Instant Pot Rice Krispies Treats

  • Line your pan with parchment paper to make removing the treats from the pan easy and cutting them into perfect pieces.
  • You can also spray your pan with cooking spray, which is easily removed when they are done cooling.
  • Try to use fresh marshmallows so they are not all clumped together. They will give you better results.
  • You can use either mini or regular marshmallows for this recipe. I often switch the more enormous marshmallows out for colored marshmallows for a festive treat.
  • Use a greased spoon or spatula to smooth out the Rice Krispie treat in the pan so you get a nice, even layer.

Variations For Instant Pot Rice Krispie Treats

There are many ways to change this classic recipe for a new twist or holiday celebration.

Here are some of my favorites!

Candy: Add chocolate candies and mini M&M’s (including holiday ones) on top after you place the Rice Crispies into the baking pan to cool.

Chocolate Rice Krispie Treats: Change the regular version to the chocolate version. The recipe will remain the same.

What is the Best Way To Store Rice Krispies Treats?

For best results, store your Rice Krispie Treats at room temperature in an airtight container, lasting 2 to 3 days. If you want to make them ahead of time, cover them and place them in the refrigerator, which will last for about a week.

Can You Freeze Rice Krispie Treats?

Yes, this makes for a great make-ahead snack you can keep in the freezer for about two months. For best results, let them thaw in the refrigerator.
