Fancy Rice Krispie Treats


A few choice add ins and we can elevate a 2nd grader’s favorite snack to a surprisingly delicious treat to be tucked into any grown up lunch box.


  • 6 tbsp (86 grams) salted butter
  • 15 oz (425 grams) Mini Marshmallows
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 6 cups (175 grams) Frosted Rice Krispies
  • 3 tbsp (50 grams) Sprinkles
  • 3 ounces White Chocolate


  1. In a heavy bottom sauce pan, on low or a medium low heat, slowly melt the butter.
  2. Add a full bag of mini marshmallows to the melted butter. Stir gently with a wooden spoon to coat the marshmallows with the butter. Keep the heat low, and stir frequently.
  3. Add the vanilla when the marshmallows have completely melted.
  4. Remove from the heat and gently stir in the remaining marshmallows, the sprinkles and rice krispies.
  5. Turn out the mixture onto a parchment lined cookie sheet. Spread it gently. Not too thin, but not too thick. Don’t pack it too tight.
  6. Allow the rice krispies treats to set up for an hour or so, and then drizzle the melted white chocolate over top. Garnish with a few more colorful sprinkles.
