Why Add Sweetened Condensed Milk
I don’t know about you, but I absolutely hate when my rice krispie treats become to hard to eat after only one day. By adding 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk to your recipe, your rice krispie treats will have an extra milky flavor, and will make your rice krispie treats stay soft for days. They are extra gooey and extra delicious. Once you make this recipe, you will never go back to the classic rice crispy treat recipe again!
Can You Freeze Rice Krispie Treats?
You sure can freeze Rice Krispies treats, allow them to cool completely, and cut them into individual servings. Then wrap each square in a piece of wax paper or plastic wrap. Then place them in a gallon-sized freezer bag or airtight container. They will say good in the freezer for up to 4 months.
