Toasted Marshmallow Rice Krispie Treats {and s’mores!}

Toasted Marshmallow Rice Krispie Treats |

Ok. So these are just normal rice krispie treats. Except that the marshmallows have been toasted instead of nuked or warmed in a pot over the stove.

TOASTED MARSHMALLOWS. In the rice krispie treats. {omg, can you see those crispy, toasty specks??}

Which makes them sort of not normal and completely AWESOME.

It’s like making campfire rice krispie treats… except this is way easier with no wicked campfire smell.

Speaking of campfires, if you really want to get all wild and crazy– split one of these bad boys in half and schmear on some melted chocolate. Smush a toasty marshmallow in between the two halves, and voila! It’s like the ultimate in krispie treats s’mores blissdom.

And it seriously couldn’t be easier. Use all the same measurements that you do in a normal RKT  recipe. But instead of melting the marshmallows, spread them on a greased cookie sheet and toast them under the broiler for a minute or two. SO SIMPLE!

Just do it.

Toasted Marshmallow Rice Krispie Treats {and s’mores!}

Yield: 9


  • 10 ounces marshmallows (miniature or large, either will work)
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 5 cups puffed rice cereal
  • optional: melting chocolate and additional marshmallows for making s'mores


  1. Preheat oven to broil. Make sure rack is in the middle of the oven (not up top, otherwise marshmallows will be toasted before they melt on the inside).
  2. Spread marshmallows on a lightly greased and lined cookie sheet. Carefully place cookie sheet in the oven on the middle rack. Turn on oven light (don't keep the door open to watch, it will hinder melting) and remove marshmallows when the majority of them are slightly darker than golden brown.
  3. Immediately scrape marshmallows into large mixing bowl. Pour butter into the bowl and stir until mostly smooth (there will still be some chunks from the toasted part of the marshmallows).
  4. Stir in the cereal and mix until cereal is coated well with marshmallows.
  5. Grease or line with parchment an 8x8 or 9x9 baking dish. Scrape the mixture into the dish and gently press to level the rice krispie treats.
  6. Let cool until firm enough to cut and serve (30-60 minutes, or less if placed in the fridge).
