A New Rice Krispy Treat Recipe

Updated on February 28, 2017

Why Does It Have to Be Rice Krispy Treats?

Rice Krispy treats are delicious and popular with children and some adults, for sure. But, why does it have to be just Rice Krispies, and why does it have to be just white marshmallows? I had some Rice Krispies, but not enough for this recipe, but I also had another cereal. It was Lucky Charms. I'm not advertising for these cereals; it's just what I happened to have left over.

I also had some white mini marshmallows, but again not enough, but I also had half a bag of the colored mini marshmallows. So, I thought, why does it have to be just the white ones?

Getting all of my ingredients together, I decided to mix these together, and I'm so glad I did. My granddaughter and the adults in my family loved them. These squares didn't taste a whole lot different, but there was a little different look.

So, if you have a recipe you want to make and don't have all of the exact ingredients, don't be afraid to make substitutions. It tweaks the recipe and makes it your own, and you never know if you will come up with something really great.

Cooking Time (Including Prep)

Prep time: 20 min
Ready in: 20 min
Yields: Makes 24 squares depending on the size of squares.

Ingredients

  • 3 1/2 tablespoons butter
  • 4 cups mini marshmallows, white or colored
  • 6 cups cereal, any cereal you have except the flake cereal

Directions

  1. Cut a piece of wax paper and line a 9" x 11" cake pan. Spray the wax paper with non-stick spray
  2. Melt the butter in a large pan over medium heat. Add the marshmallows and stir until the marshmallows are completely melted.
  3. Add the cereal; take off the burner and stir the cereal until it's all coated. You can spray the large spoon you use with non-stick spray also; it helps with the sticking.
  4. Spread it on the wax paper lined pan and smooth it out on top. You can either let it cool off at room temperature or put it in the refrigerator, to cool faster.
  5. After it's cooled completely, lift the wax paper by the ends to take the treats out of the pan. Let it sit for a minute then cut it into squares and place them in a cup cake liner for easier handling. Store them in an air tight container at room temperature.

        Hi Jackie. First, I never would have thought you to be a grandmother. lol You seem so young. And, yes that does sound interesting. Sea salt is becoming increasingly popular and the ruffle chips will send it over the top. Thanks for the idea.

        Blessings to you.

        I recently saw this recipe on Facebook with Ruffle chips added for sweet and salty. I am going to try it for my grandson this weekend. I think maybe you sprinkle a little sea salt over the top. Sounds interesting doesn't it?

        Hi Jackie and Linda, HubPages is looking different and I don't have the same view I did before. Did you notice that too? Well, I really appreciate both of your ideas and comments and visits. Thanks so much. You are both encouraging to me.

        Blessings to you both.

        You've got me thinking about the treats that I could make from the cereal in my kitchen. Thanks for the inspiration, Rachel.

        You are very close to having an Easter treat there Rachel! I think making do with what you have brings about some delicious accidents. I have made four different things out of your last recipe and this does look like something I will want to experiment with for an Easter treat fro my grandson!

        Thanks for all your great ideas.
