  • Salty Butter.  I experienced that if you want to control the salty taste of dessert you should use unsalted butter, but I prefer to use salted butter. because I think most of its deliciousness is found in a salty rich taste. You can use unsalted butter instead, just add in salt as needed to taste.

Additional Tip

Marshmallows: Remember to melt the marshmallows on low heat, making sure that they are soft enough because they are the reason for making this dessert fluffy, use fresh marshmallows, because old ones are not good for this.

Before pressing this dessert use cooking spray or use butter for this, it will also help your hand not to stick with the mixture, I used butter wrap for pressing the sticky mixture.

How to Store Birthday Cake Rice Krispies?

Store leftovers in an airtight container, I used plastic wrap to cover this, please store them at cool room temperature for up to 3-5 days, after that, they will become hard and salty, you can store them in a large zip lock bag.

If you want to store this in a refrigerator, I don’t recommend it as this will dry out and become hard stuff, let it sit out for 45 minutes to soften, this will store well for up to 1 week.
