Line a 9-by-5-inch (23-by-13-cm) loaf pan with parchment paper or wax paper.
If making the rice krispies treats for two in the microwave, place the butter in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on full power in 15-second increments, until the butter melts completely, 30 to 50 seconds. Add the marshmallows and microwave, again in 15-second increments, until the marshmallows melt, 25 to 50 seconds. Immediately stir the butter and marshmallows together very well. If making the rice krispies treats for two on the stovetop, melt the butter in a medium saucepan over low heat. Immediately add the marshmallows and, working quickly, stir until melted and well blended. Remove from the heat.
Add the pinch of salt and the cereal all at once to the melted marshmallow and butter goo. Stir, stir, stir until the cereal is completely coated. Press the mixture evenly into the prepared pan using buttered fingertips or a spatula. If you have the patience, let the treats cool slightly.
Slice in half and devour. (Just to warn you, these are generous servings. But c’mon, since when did a little Rice Krispies treat ever satisfy your craving?!) Originally published February 12, 2017.
Recipe Testers' Reviews
Yippee! Rice Krispies treats for two! These came together even easier than the original and in our small household we didn't need to wait for a crowd to come over to indulge. I used the microwave version. They took 7 minutes to make and we rested them in the fridge for another 30 minutes. Makes 2 very generous servings.
What a perfect way to make Rice Krispies treats. I don’t use my microwave to "cook" food. I never liked the results—until this recipe. It works. It's a quick snack. It has ingredients I have in my house at all times. And it took me 8 minutes from starting to measure the ingredients until I finished patting them out on a plate sprayed with cooking spray and tastes just like the full batch original Rice Krispies treats.
As for the servings, it's all in the way you look at them. 2 VERY generous servings? For me, it would be 4 servings. For a regular adult, I would say 3 servings. For a child, I would say 4 to 6 servings. For a teenager, just a bite!
