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.

Follw me!

    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.

    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 made these, with a few changes to make gluten-free and for Valentines Day. They turned out wonderfully! So yummy! Thanks so much for sharing the recipe.
    I linked my post back to you so everyone can come see your original creation.

    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!
