Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use a different type of cereal?

Yes, you can substitute other puffed grain cereals for rice krispies, though the texture and taste may vary.

Why are my rice krispie treats hard?

This might be due to overcooked marshmallows. Make sure to melt the marshmallows over low heat and avoid letting them brown.


  • Butter: Refined coconut oil or margarine can be used as a dairy-free substitute.
  • Marshmallows: Marshmallow fluff or vegan marshmallows are suitable alternatives.

Tips From the Chef

  • Keep stirring the marshmallow-butter mixture to prevent it from burning.
  • Don’t press too hard when shaping the treats; this keeps them light and chewy.
  • Add a pinch of salt to enhance the sweetness of the marshmallows.
