White Chocolate Rice Crispy Treats square

Want to know how to make delicious rice crispy treats even better?  The answer is pretty simple.  Are you ready for it?

Add white chocolate.

Oh. My.

Heaven on a plate, they are.  I dare you to stop at just one.  Or five.

And the best part?  Only four ingredients and 15 minutes to make.

You’re welcome.

Here is what you need:

1 box Rice Krispies (or generic equivalent) 
2 bags mini marshmallows
1 stick of butter, plus more for greasing the pan
1 bag of white chocolate chips, divided.

Step 1: Generously grease a 9×13″ cake pan or baking dish with butter.

Step 5:  Continue stirring until marshmallows are completely melted.  There may still be some small chunks of white chocolate–that’s okay.

Step 6:  Slowly add the Rice Krispies to the pot and stir until cereal is completely coated with marshmallow mixture.

Step 7:  Pour mixture (it will be sticky!) into your pre-greased baking dish.

Step 9:  Melt remaining white chocolate chips in microwave.  (Heat for 30 seconds, then stir, then repeat until melted.  If mixture seems thick, add a tablespoon of vegetable oil.)

Step 10:  Place melted white chocolate in a pastry bag (or Ziploc bag, in a pinch).  Cut off tip (or corner) of bag, then drizzle overtop of cereal.  Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to let white chocolate harden before attempting to cut into squares.

    LOVE this recipe!! Thank you so much for sharing – so simple :) Yum!

    The only step I had problems with was Step 10 – I tried melting the white chocolate chips and putting it in a ziploc bag, but couldn’t get the chips to squeeze through… they were still semi solid but so hot they started to melt the bag! So I compromised and added some Halloween sprinkles on top – much easier and still delicious!

    I’m trying this today! Thanks for the recipe. I only have large marshmellows…how much of those do you think I should use? 2 bags, same as mini-marshmellows?

    Hmm is anyone else encountering problems with the images on this blog loading?
    I’m trying to find out if its a problem on my end or if it’s the blog.

    Any responses would be greatly appreciated.

    […] Spray a 8×8 or (9×13 for thinner bars) baking dish with cooking spray. Measure out your 5 cups of cereal so it’s ready. Melt the butter in a large pot over medium-low heat. Add the marshmallows. When almost melted stir in 1 1/2 cup white chocolate chips. When they are melted, quickly add the 5 cups rice crispy treats. Stir till combined.  Press mixture into prepared baking dish (I always spray my hands with cooking spray so it doesn’t stick.) Melt remaining 1/2 cup chocolate chips in microwave. Put in a zip top bag, cut the corner and drizzle over the top of the crispy treats. When chocolate is set on top, slice and enjoy! Notes: I used a 9×13 dish. But an 8×8 would make nice thick bars. Either size works. Recipe Source: adapted from Living Well Spending Less […]
