Why Do Rice Krispies Treats Taste So Good?

I was going to jazz these Rice Krispie Treats up....but I haven't gone to the grocery store yet. And I wanted them ;o)

1 box of Rice Krispies
1 stick of butter
1 bag of marshmallows

Melt butter and marshmallows on stovetop or in microwave. Mix melted mixture with cereal. Pour into a greased 13x9 in pan. Using non stick spray on a spatula to spread out mixture evenly.

Soooo, how about some variations to this very basic, very yummy recipe?

How about adding almonds and craisins to the mixture

Using Cocoa Krispies instead

Fruity Pebbles?

Different variations of cereal?

Mixing two cereals together?

Layering them?

Adding food color to the melted butter and marshmallows to change the color?

Or you could add mini chocolate chips and raisins.


Try adding different instant pudding mixes to the melted butter and marshmallows.

Add M&M's

Have you ever made a variation of Rice Krispie Treats?

Can be seen at Prairie Story and And Baby Makes Five, Mommie Cooks, My Romantic Home


  1. My sister adds Nutella to hers. I've tried them...they are o.k., but nothing beats the original.

  2. Dropping by from Buzz on By Thursday

  3. Such a great treat! I just posted a variation on my site. Chocolate Crackles. They are Rice Bubbles (same thing) in Australia.

  4. I love them with half fruity pebbles, but they are a great standby treat just plain. Always a hit!! My friend told me to add 1 tablespoon of corn syrup and they stay more moist and it works!!

  5. Oh I would love them with peanut butter and chocolate! :)

  6. I agree - oeanut butter and chocolate sounds incredible!

  7. ooh good tip Tiffanee. I have noticed the homemade kind is so much more moist than store bought ones.

  8. Very interesting twist on a classic snack. Good ideas!

  9. Oh how I love rice krispie treats! They're one of those desserts from your childhood that taste just as great when your 6 as when you're 36! You made some great suggestions. I love them with chocolate and peanut butter! Thanks so much for linking up to Family Friendly Fridays!

  10. I think rice krispie treats taste so delicious because they represent everything good about childhood.
