Ingredient Substitutions

If you’re not a fan of Reese’s Pieces or have dietary restrictions, feel free to substitute them with other candy-coated chocolates, or even dried fruit for a healthier twist. For those who are dairy intolerant, you can replace the butter with a dairy-free alternative like margarine or refined coconut oil.

Tips for a Successful Recipe

  1. Remember to stir the marshmallows continuously while melting to prevent them from burning.
  2. Press the mixture into the pan evenly to ensure uniform thickness of the treats.
  3. Allow the treats to cool completely before cutting to get neat, square pieces.


If your marshmallow mixture hardens too quickly, try placing the mixture over low heat and stir until it softens. In the case where your treats don’t set properly, it might be because the mixture wasn’t pressed firmly enough into the pan, or they might need more time to cool and set.
