White Chocolate Rice Krispies Treats- so addicting!

My children absolutely love Rice Krispies treats and I was playing with some ideas over the weekend for a fun little surprise for them.

It is almost Valentine’s Day so I was trying to think of something red or pink or white to make them a little more fun and festive.

I came up with this recipe which we all agreed was really delicious.  Hopefully you will give this a shot because this really did amp up the yummy factor of Rice Krispies quite a bit and added that little extra something.

To make these is so incredibly fast- get going now and they will be ready for your belly in about 15 minutes!

Rice krispie treat recipe

You just want to start by mixing 3 tablespoons of butter and about 4 cups of marshmallows in a sauce pan until they are nicely incorporated and the marshmallows are completely melted. I used mini marshmallows and this was not quite the entire bag.

I like to cook on medium low nice and slow to be sure the butter and marshmallows don’t burn.

Once it is melted nicely, remove from heat and add in the Rice Krispies cereal.  I did 5 cups and stir well- you might go up to 6 cups of cereal depending on how your treats are looking after you stir them.

Next add in 1 cup of white chocolate chips.  I love Ghirardelli chocolate chips for all my baking.

Stir the chips in- the mixture should still be warm so your chips will likely melt right in which is perfect.

Butter your baking dish- 9×13 dishes will make nice thick Rice Krispy treats- dump the entire mixture into the dish.  Now use a spatula to smoosh it down.  I go over it with my fingers and if you butter your fingers just a bit you can push down without it sticking.

And now you can dive in or you can cover with saran wrap and let them harden up a bit on the counter at room temp.

If you want a little more sweetness, you can heat the white chocolate chips in the microwave until just melted and drizzle over the top.  I thought these were sweet enough though so I kept mine plain.

And here are a few ideas I had to make these festive for Valentine’s Day:

M&M Rice Krispies

You can snazz these up even more by adding M&Ms or little heart sprinkles would be cute as well.

I used a heart cookie cutter (butter the inside so it doesn’t stick) and then you can cut these into cute little shapes.

Melt a bit of the white chocolate chips in a double broiler or the microwave and working quickly just spread a bit of chocolate on top of your heart or just halfway as I did.

And then dab on some sprinkles and you are done!  My girls loved these!  I made some little tiny ones for their lunchboxes this week too:

I can’t wait to make these! Is it easier to to use the cookie cutter when it’s still warm or completely cooled at room temp? I hope I have more luck with this recipe, I seem to make rock hard krispies around here.

Thanks so much,

Rie- maybe you aren’t doing enough butter? I cut them warm for sure. It is easier to rub the cookie cutter with butter with your fingers because warm rice krispies are so gooey. If you wait for them to harden they can be a little too hard to cut through with a cookie cutter. Just my opinion :)
