More Rice Crispies!

Keep the variations on crispy treats coming! The classic version will always be a favorite, but it is fun to mix things up and try new variations! Also, note that you don't always have to use rice cereal in your variations either. More cereal means more options.

S'Mores Krispie Treats


2 (16 oz) bags mini marshmallows, divided
1 1/2 sticks (12 tablespoons) salted butter
Pinch salt
1.5 (12 oz) boxes of Golden Grahams cereal
1 (12 oz) bag semi sweet chocolate chips


In a large pan, melt the butter. Add all but 1 cup of the mini marshmallows and the salt, and stir over low heat until the marshmallows are melted. Reserve the remaining marshmallows.

In a large bowl (or the pan you melted the marshmallows in), toss the Golden Grahams cereal with the marshmallow mixture until the cereal is coated. Add all but 1/2 cup of the chocolate chips and mix until the chips are evenly distributed throughout the mixture.

Grease and line with parchment a 13x9x2 inch pan. Press the marshmallow mixture into the pan, making it as even and flat as possible. Sprinkle the reserved chocolate chips over the mixture, and the reserved marshmallows over the chocolate chips.

Place the pan under the broiler (watch carefully) for about 30 seconds, or until the marshmallows are toasty brown. Chill thoroughly before cutting into squares, but serve at room temperature.

Notes: Good and gooey. I don't have a picture of this one. Sorry about that!

Add in marshmallows and white chocolate chips and stir until melted.

Stir in cereal and 2 cups of the crushed cookies.

Notes: Who doesn't love Oreos? What a great idea to throw Oreos and rice crispy treats together.

Also, my apologies, but I don't have a picture of this one. I will have to see if my mom does...she made it on a night when I wasn't there.


  1. The Oreo ones were an instant favorite. You will get oohs and ahhs if you take them to a pot luck. I took them to work and they won rave reviews.

  2. Oh, but the others were great, too. I used milk chocolate chips and they were a little rich. The semi sweet would cut the sweetness from the Golden Grahams a little better.
