    It turned out great! Such a good recipe! My family loved it and it was so much better than the store bought kind.

    They were really good! I think home made ones are always better than the store bought ones because the marshmallow is gooey and stretchy. In the pictures of the recipe, I could see the treats were about the hight of two normal rice Krispies, so I thought why not make them the original size, so I used two 9×9 pans and got 32 treats. One flaw about the directions though, is that it never says when to add the vanilla, so I forgot about it. Other than that, this recipe is good and I would make again!

    I would make it again. I doubled the recipe and added some mini chocolate chips. The instructions were excellent to ensure the marshmallows were properly melted with the butter

    It was okay. It wasn’t bad nor was it the best. My family and I definitely ate it. I think next time I’ll make it without the vanilla.

    Worked great. I used Llama Loops instead of Rice Krispies and it turned out great. Going to top with strawberries and a white chocolate drizzle

    Super yummy and perfect consistency. Had to substitute a different cereal because my kid didn’t like a new cereal I bought, but I hate throwing food away... Would’ve definitely been better with Rice Krispies.
