White Chocolate Rice Krispies Treats with M&Ms

DSC_3502 edited watermarked

I think I’ve mentioned before that Rice Krispies Treats aren’t my favorites. And they’re not– but I’m afraid some of you misunderstood me! I do like Rice Krispies Treats. I do!

I just like cake so much better….

But, really. In all honesty, I do love Rice Krispies Treats in their own, special way. But I really need for them to be decked out Krispies if I’m going to give them a second glance.

My mom used to make us Rice Krispies Treats with Hershey’s Kissables in them. Do they make those anymore? I look for them on occasion, just for Rice Krispies, but I haven’t seen them in forever! So M&Ms are as close as I can get to my mom’s treats for now.

I’ve also started adding white chocolate to these bars. I loved the texture of the 3 Musketeer Rice Krispies, and figured it must have been from the extra chocolate from the candy. It also adds a little more flavor that puts these treats just over the top!


White Chocolate Rice Krispies Treats with M&Ms


  • 10 oz. miniature marshmallows (one bag)
  • 3 tbsp. butter
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate or white melting chocolate
  • 1 bag M&M minis
  • 6 cups Rice Krispies Cereal


  1. In a large bowl, microwave the marshmallows, white chocolate, and butter for 1 minute. Stir until smooth (if needed, microwave for an additional 30 seconds).
  2. Gradually mix in the cereal, 3 cups at a time. I usually add about another 1/2 cup to mine to make them a little less "gooey," so that's up to you!
  3. Mix in the M&Ms with a large rubber spatula.
  4. Press into a greased and parchment lined 9x13 baking dish. Let cool to set. Cut into 2" squares to serve.

  3. I haven’t seen Kissables, but they do make Hershettes around Christmas, which are basically just red and green m&ms. :)

    And, um, these look fabulous. I don’t super love white chocolate, but I think I could get down with it in my rice krispies.

  10. These look so good. I pinned them. Thank you for sharing. Blessings, Jo-Ann

  11. I have a coworker who LOVES rice krispie treats, and is always begging me to bake some. It cracks me up because they are quite possibly the easiest thing to make ever. I guess it’s like my hubby thinking he “made” crudites, that’s how I feel about “making” rice krispie treats haha. They are pretty yummy though, not gonna lie :)

    I linked my post back to you so everyone can come see your original creation.

  15. Can you tell me the secret to keeping the M&Ms from melting? Just made these, and once I added in the M&Ms and combined, they all melted, so now we just have chocolate rice krispy treats. Which are still super yummy, but not what we were going for! Thanks!

    • Some of them always end up melty, but here’s what I do to keep it from getting too bad: I usually give the krispie mix a few minutes to cool, first of all. Of course, not all the way firm, but just so that it’s not super warm to the touch. Secondly, I use a really “soft” rubber spatula– the bigger the better. And most importantly– once I start stirring the M&Ms in, I know that I only get a few “stirs”, so I try to make them count by making it more a “fold” than a “stir.” Just like you would fold egg whites into a batter, try and fold the M&Ms in by scooping krispie mixture over the M&Ms…. that’s probably all super confusing, but I hope it helps a little!
