  • Prep a 6 X 6, or similar sized, pan for nonstick. I use parchment paper or wax paper as these make the end product easier to serve and clean up a lot easier.
    square baking dish
  • Once your baking dish has been prepped, use a sauce pan on low heat to melt your butter. Once the butter has melted you can stir in the marshmallows.
    pot on stove
  • When the marshmallow have been completely melted into the butter, remove the pan from the heat and stir in the cereal and optional vanilla. Then press the mixture into the prepped pan from the first step. Tip:use a well greased rubber spatula to press your mixture. Allow to cool and cut into squares.

Recipe Notes

See post for ingredient details.
As mentioned you can find Sugar Free and Gluten Free Marshmallows online here. Also, using regular Rice Krispie Cereal, which has about 4 grams of sugar per serving is not all that bad. However,Rice Krispie Cereal is also available in Gluten Free (1 gram of sugar) which you can find online
To make this a sugar free peanut butter rice krispie treat recipe, you will need to make a bit of a change in your ingredients.
For the butter, cut the butter down to 1 ½ tablespoons. However, add a a quarter of a cup of peanut butter to the recipe. You can find sugar free peanut butter here or use my recipe for sugar free peanut butter to make your own.
