Recipes || Homemade Rice Krispie Treats (without marshmallows)

I used to live for opening my lunchbox to find the Rice Krispie (with a “k” obviously) Treat bar in my bag. They were sickeningly sweet. Just what kids like! So as an adult, I realised that I like Rice Krispies almost just as much as I always have done. 

Have you ever had an ooey-gooey, buttery rice krispie treat straight from the oven? If you haven’t you absolutely must! These krispies will keep in an air-tight container for up to 5 days but they won’t be around long enough to go off. Trust me.

  • I LOVE Rice Krispie treats and used to eat them as a kid all the time too! I usually make them with marshmallows, but this is a GREAT alternative! Will keep this in mind for my next party, as I find it always goes down well with guests.

    • The only disappointing thing about not making them without marshmallows is that you really need that cooling time to let them set so you don’t get the joy of eating them semi-warm! x

  • Wait… why no marshmallows? I feel like I’m always being denied opportunities for marshmallows. First world problems etc etc

    • Mainly because I was making them to bring to out and one of the girls is vegan and I feel like she always misses out so I wanted to make them friendly to her. (Most marshmallows have animal-product gelatin in them.)

  • I came here to comment “BLASPHEMY!” but I’ve got to admit these sound ok. If you omitted butter though, then you’d be on your way to crazy town.

  • Oh yum! I seriously need to make rice krispie treats now! Thanks for the recipe share ๐Ÿ™‚ x

  • Perfect timing! I was actually making them for a vegan friend, which necessitated skipping them. Just make sure they are super sticky and you’ve let them cool to set! X

  • Oh yeah I like them

  • These look really yummy and so easy to make

    • Super easy! The only trick is making sure that everything gets really covered in the sauce so that it sticks together! x

  • I used to LOVE rice krispies treats! I’m not sure what golden syrup is but do you think it’d work with maple syrup or agave maybe?

    • Golden syrup is a type of treacle- if you ask your Brit to point it out to you in the shop I bet he could! I don’t think maple syrup would be quite sticky enough to bind and hold everything together (it’s substituting for the more traditional melted marshmallow) I have some agave in my cupboard at the moment, which makes me want to experiment!
