Bakery Style Rice Krispie Bars



Rice Krispie Bars are always such a treat.  But be honest… have had a few homemade bars that are hard and dry and just not even worthy of being called dessert.  The trick to these ‘ooey gooey extra soft and thick’ Bakery Style Rice Krispie Bars is the ingredients and pan (isn’t that always the trick?!) 

Because these bars are made in 2 (8×8) square cake pans, they come out nice and thick which keeps them gooey and soft.


Keep these Bakery Style Rice Krispie Treats in an air tight container and they will keep for 5 days.  That is…..if they don’t get eaten before then.  Remember these in the summer when you need a treat but don’t want the added heat of using the oven.
