Why you will love making Microwave Desserts!

Just for you – We all have a favorite treat, but not everyone wants to spend the hour it takes to bake cookies or a cake to enjoy a few bites.

And there is nothing better than enjoying something at home versus having to pick up prepackaged desserts!

This single-serve Rice Krispie in a bowl is the microwave dessert recipe that is ready when you need a sweet treat. 

Dorm Room Friendly – Have a teen or young adult college-bound or simply in their apartment?

This trick to make small batch Rice Krispie treats (Without mom there) can be whipped up simply with a microwave. Insanely good, this generationally loved dessert gets an upgrade for one. 

Simple Ingredients

  • mini marshmallows
  • salted butter
  • Rice Krispies cereal – Any brand of crispy rice cereal will work, but we love the Kellogs version for the most authentic crispy treats taste. 

How to make Single Serve Rice Krispie Treats

  1. Add marshmallows and butter to a microwave-safe bowl or mug and microwave on high for 20-30 seconds.
  2. Marshmallows double in size and may bubble over the microwave-safe mug, so if you have a larger mug, that might work better. Use caution, as marshmallows can be very hot.

  1. Stir well until butter is completely melted and mixed with marshmallows.
  2. Add cereal to marshmallow mixture and combine until cereal mixture is evenly coated.

This recipe is really easy to alter! While we have suggested mini marshmallow and rice cereal measurements, it’s just fine to add more melty miniature marshmallows, or more Rice Krispie treats.

This is one dessert recipe you can adjust to find the taste and texture you enjoy the most.
