How to Make Chocolate Chip Rice Krispies Treat at Home?

Follow this recipe to make sweet and decadent rice Krispy treats with chocolate chips at home from scratch.

                    ⏱ Prep Time: 15 minutes | 🔥 Cook Time: 5 minutes | 🍽 Serving: 15


  • Chocolate Chips (Semi-Sweet) 1.5 cup
  • Marshmallows 20 oz
  • Kosher salt ½ tsp
  • Pure vanilla extract ½ tsp
  • Rice Krispie Cereal 12 cups
  • Unsalted Butter 6 tbsp


  1. The chocolate chips must be frozen. As you prepare the sweets, pour the chocolate chips into a bowl that can be frozen.
  2. Apply nonstick cooking spray to a 9×13 pan.
  3. In a big bowl that can go in the microwave, melt the butter and marshmallows. Up until it is totally melted, heat it in 30-second intervals while stirring in between.
  4. After adding the salt and vanilla, mix until smooth and allow to gently cool.
  5. Stir in the Rice Krispie cereal until it is thoroughly coated once it has melted. For 5-8 minutes, let this mixture sit at room temperature to gradually cool.
  6. To prevent the chocolate chips from melting, gently fold them in.
  7. Distribute equally into the ready pan. Press the Rice Krispies into the pan’s bottom using a piece of wax. In order to prevent it from sticking to the wax paper, I spray the wax paper with a non-stick spray.
  8. Before serving, allow it to fully cool. Slice, plate, and savor!


  • Keep out of the refrigerator. In order to keep them gooey and tasty, it is preferable to let them cool at room temperature.
  • Wrap everything tightly in wax paper or nonstick tin foil before putting it in a big zip-top bag to freeze. For up to three months, freeze.
  • If you don’t have unsalted butter you can use normal butter by browning it before use.

Why Do Rice Krispie Treats Fall Apart

Why Do Rice Krispie Treats Fall Apart?

If your rice treats are falling apart, it’s because they are not ready yet. Give them more time to set and firm. To speed up the process, you can cool them in a freezer or refrigerator.

Another reason why your Krispie treats are falling could be your excessive marshmallow use. Too much marshmallow turns it too sticky and rice starts to fall apart.

If it’s still not sticking together, it means you have used too much moisture. Maybe marshmallows are over-melted, or the butter you have used has a high content of water. If that is the case, just add more Rice Krispies to make the mixture stiffer.

Toppings for Rice Krispie Treats

You can top off your treats with a chocolate ganache or peanut butter. If you don’t have chocolate at home, you can also melt chocolate chips and drizzle them on Krispie treats.

For adding more color, feel free to use M&Ms that give a crunch to the treats and you can customize the rice treats however you want.
