Delicious Rice Krispies Treats Recipes

Snap, crackle, pop – Rice Krispies® cereal is definitely a comfort food that makes an easy transition from our childhood to adulthood. But even better than the tasty crisped rice breakfast are the illustrious Rice Krispies Treats™ – the glorious combination of Rice Krispies®, marshmallows and pure magic.

Luckily, Sept. 18 is National Rice Krispies Treats™ Day, because why not. So we’re celebrating this holiday with some of our favorite treats desserts. If you don’t have the time or kitchen coordination to make these at home, pick up a box of your favorite treats at the store. (Or if you’re in the New York City area, stop by the new bakery Treat House). Either way, this delicious day deserves to be celebrated.

I know what you're thinking, how can you make rice krispie treats even better? Two words: white chocolate. The recipe for our White Chocolate Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Treats™ calls for white chocolate morsels and peanut butter for a decadent dessert parents and kids alike will devour. This drool-worthy dessert actually used Peanut Butter & Co’s White Chocolate Wonderful peanut butter for an even tastier treat. But any flavor of PB should do because peanut butter, by law, makes anything better.

Or, you can just have a little fun by maintaining the same flavor but kicking the presentation up a notch. We turned our favorite childhood recipe into the perfect summer dessert with a little help from food coloring. Make your own Watermelon Rice Krispie Treats™ and be prepared to wow guests.

While you're playing around the with the presentation, why not put your treat on a stick and add some patriotic flair?! The perfect ending to any celebration that calls for a little bit of red, white, and blue, our Rice Krispie Treat Star Pops are so fun to eat and will add a patriotic touch to any dessert spread.

If you're celebrating a special occasion like a birthday, you'll want a wow-worthy dessert that will get guests talking! (That is, when they're not busy munching on snacks). You can opt for our ooey gooey Crispy Confetti Birthday Cake, which is not only so sweet and satisfying, but is also gluten-free! Don't feel like making a cake? We love baking up unique non-cake treats for birthday parties, and our recipe for Rice Krispie Treat Ice Cream Sandwiches is the ultimate combination of two classic childhood favorites turned into one must-try decadent dessert.
