These copycat Starbucks marshmallow dream rice Krispies are soft, chewy, and studded with marshmallows. Butter, corn syrup, and marshmallows melt into the perfect sweet mixture, fold in the rice cereal and press into a pan to set. Just 4 easy ingredients and you’ll have these rice Krispies at home for a lot less than the store-bought ones! I like to fold in mini marshmallows to give these extra soft, buttery flavor.
