Hello Friends! Here we are well into September and back into a routine. We have been enjoying the little hints of fall, cooler breezes, football and movies this weekend. I am loving that football season is back too!

Why This Rice Crispy Recipe?

Changing It Ip

These Rice Crispy treats (as I like to spell them) are a childhood memory for me. I find wonderful memories of days long gone by when I make these and honestly, I just love classic recipes like this one. Did you know that Rice Krispie Treats were invented in 1939?

I love making bars with cereal because they are a nice sweet treat when I want something festive, but also super simple to make. You can avoid some of the preservatives that are in ready-made bars from the grocery store by making your own as well.

More Rice Krispie Treat Variations

If you want, you can also add a teaspoon of vanilla to this recipe to make Rice Krispies with Vanilla. I have tried that version and it adds a little hint of home-baked flavor to the recipe.

Another fun idea is to drizzle them with melted chocolate! In this case, I changed up the cereal I used. It adds a different flavor and color. I also added some colored sprinkles just for fun!

timesaving tips to streamline recipes

This recipe is pretty quick, but there are a few ways to streamline.

  • You can use Marshmallow Fluff instead of marshmallows
  • You can make these a day ahead, but I would encourage you to make them a few hours ahead because they really taste best when they are fresh.
  • Measure the cereal the day before and have it ready to go in a sealed container so that you don’t have to measure it out the day you make them.
