Easy Rice Krispie Treats Recipe

There’s always a new way to elevate a recipe – even when they’re the simples of desserts.

Over the years, I have experimented with ingredient ratios and add-ins to perfect my rice cereal treats. Today, I’m sharing my tried and true recipe of Funfetti Rice Krispie Squares, which gives a colourful twist to the classic dessert.

Sprinkles Galore

The key to getting the right amount of colour into these treats is by knowing how to spread out your sprinkles. Serious business, right?

When folding the rice krispie mixture, only add half of your sprinkles into the mix. The remaining sprinkles will be used as a garnished once the treats are packed into its baking pan.

The Perfect Consistency

It’s taken me a while to figure out my preference in Rice Krispie Treat variations. I like they gooey but not overly sticky. I also don’t add vanilla extract to mine – the sprinkles give it enough sweetness and flavour!

How To Store Rice Krispie Treats

You can store Rice Krispie treats at room temperature. Keep them covered so the air stays off of them. This will prevent the treats from becoming stale. They will last about 3-4 days.

Can you freeze them? Yes, Rice Krispie treats are freezer friendly. Wrap them in wax paper and store them in a freezer-safe food storage bag. They will stay fresh for up to six months.

Make Chocolate Treats

Use Cocoa Pebbles to make chocolate Rice Krispie treats. Then, drizzle the bars with melted white chocolate. The sprinkles will really stand out against the chocolate cereal.
