VERY GOOD! I took the suggestion of adding an extra 1/2 cup of cereal, and the consistency was perfect...not too sticky and gooey. The vanilla really adds to the flavor, and using real butter is highly recommended. I do suggest either making a double batch for the 9X13 pan, or using a 9X9 or 8X8 for the original amount; I like thicker bars. Thanks Karen.

Too gooey... needs a little more cereal

The recipe was pretty good following the original recipe. I thought that it had a bit of a gritty/powdery taste to it. With the second batch I increased the cereal to 6 cups and added a tablespoon of the vanilla,and a teaspoon of corn syrup. They were so much better. Everyone loved them.

RICE CRISPIE BARS = GOOEY OR WHY MAKE THEM!?? Great recipe - vanilla is a nice touch. I always melt my butter in the microwave and then mix in the marshmellows.... microwave another 15 seconds then mix in the cripies. Easier than than the pan. I like them thick also, so I make them in a 7 x 11 brownie pan.

Perfect! I've never made rice crispie treats with vanilla, but it adds a great softness to the flavor. These are perfect as-is, but I just made a batch for Saint Patrick's day with these changes: cut back a little on the butter, went a little heavy on the marshmallows, and instead of vanilla I added (of course) green food coloring (about 10-12 drops for a double batch) and a few tablespoons of Irish Cream liquor. After I patted this into a 13x9 pan, I topped it with 1/4 cup each white, milk and semi-sweet chocolate chips, which I had melted and mixed with a tablespoon of butter and another few tablespoons of Irish Cream (this is the top layer of the Irish Cream Truffle Fudge recipe found here!). It spreads on top in a thin layer. They're a hit here!!

These are excellent as is. Gooey and tasty. I made a few changes for later batches: 1/2 tsp vanilla (to make the taste a bit more mild), 5 cups rice crispies, also I added 1/4 cup of chocolate chips after I had almost completely mixes the bar mix (after they were not really warm). The butter and marshmallows amounts were the same. They produced great results. By waiting to add chips until after somewhat cool you keep the chips from melting into the marshmallow and getting messy. I preferred them this way for pops of chocolate flavor.

If you like gooey then look no farther. Like previous people I use the microwave. For the best flavor use real butter,.. a little extra doesn't hurt! ;)I also doubled the vanilla extract, and added an additional 1/2 cup of rice crispy cereal. I pressed into heart shaped pans and will be sending out "care packages" to my kids who are away at Universities. They'll be thrilled to have this childhood favorite. Thanks!

I know this sounds ridiculous but I DON'T make Rice Krispe Bars - I tend to burn the marshmellow (or something) b/c they ALWAYS - NEVER FAIL - Come out hard as a rock!! Therefore, I always let my mom make them until last night!! I did increase the krispies by a 1/2c and THEY WERE SOFT!! They are marshmellowy but not soggy! (I might try 5c of rice krispies next time - keep your fingers crossed that this increase won't ruin them). I will keep using this recipe b/c it was the first time these worked for me!! Thanks Karen!
