What’s In These White Chocolate Chip Rice Krispies Treats?

Be sure to visit the recipe card below for full ingredient amounts and recipe instructions!

  • Rice Cereal: I use crispy rice cereal for my treats to keep it real.
  • Butter, can be plant based
  • Mini Marshmallows – I like to use a plant-based marshmallow to keep these treats plant-based. 
  • Vanilla Extract: it’s super important to use real pure vanilla extract, and not artificial baking vanilla flavor. This real all natural vanilla is a fantastic ingredient to give these rice bars an extra boost.
  • White Chocolate Chips: which are used twice in this recipe – these delicious chips melt into the bars, and are sprinkled on top for maximum flavor!

How Do I Make Rice Krispie Treats with White Chocolate?

  • Line a large 9×9 glass baking dish with parchment paper, set aside. Also set aside about 1/2 cup of mini marshmallows, these will be used later in the recipe.
  • In a large pot, add the butter and remainder of the marshmallows on low heat.  Stir for about 5-10 minutes until the ingredients have completely melted together.
  • Add the vanilla extract to the marshmallow mixture and stir well to combine.
  • Add the rice cereal, half of the white chocolate chips, and the extra 1/2 cup of marshmallows to the pot and mix well.
  • Pour the rice cereal mixture into the baking dish – and gently press the rice cereal down.  Make sure to not pack down too hard, as the looser they are placed in the baking dish the softer the treats will be.
  • Sprinkle the top with the last half of the white chocolate chips.  Wait for 30 minutes to cool, then cut, serve and enjoy!
