Kandy Korn Rice Krispie Treats

Are you like the rest of us and have loads and loads of extra Kandy Korn lying around after Halloween? Well, here’s an idea, make the best Rice Krispie Treats ever!  These are just as fast and easy as regular Rice Krispie treats, but with an extra added zip!  You can cut them into cute shapes and dip the ends in melted chocolate (like I did in the picture), or just cut them into normal squares and enjoy the not-so-secret ingredient.  Either way, I hope you like them.  These Kandy Korn Rice Krispie Treats are my husbands new favorite treat.

Are Rice Krispie Treats Gluten Free?

Even though Rice Krispies are made with rice, they are not gluten free.

Malt flavoring is one of the ingredients in Rice Krispies, and malt flavoring is made from barley, a grain with gluten.

Some gluten free brands do make gluten free crispy rice cereal.

How Long Will Rice Krispie Treats Keep?

You can store rice krispie treats in an airtight container at room temperature for 3-4 days.

Rice krispie treats can be frozen for up to 6 weeks.

Can Marshmallows Be Frozen?

You can store an unopened bag of marshmallows in the freezer for 3 months.

If the bag is opened, put it inside a heavy duty freezer bag and freeze.

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes
Servings: 15


  • 1 bag One bag of large marshmallows
  • 1/2 cup One cube of butter
  • 12 oz. One bag 12 oz of Kandy Korn
  • 7 cups of Rice Krispies


  • Spray a cookie sheet with PAM or coat a sheet of plastic wrap with PAM. The Kandy Korn makes the treats much more tacky than usual. It will stick to parchment or wax paper.
  • Melt the butter in a large stock pot.
  • Add the Kandy Korn and marshmallows.
  • Stir until they are all dissolved.
  • Pour 1/2 to 3/4 of the Rice Krispies.
  • Slowly add the rest until you get the consistency you like. That ended up being around 7 cups for us (we usually only use 5, but the Kandy Korn adds more gooeyness).
  • Press treats onto a pan to cool.
  • WARNING: the Kandy Korn gets really hot. If you usually smash the rice krispies into the pan with your hand you may get burned. I recommend the back of a pancake flipper. They will also be much tackier. Work quickly to spread treats & cut them before they cool. Even though they are tackier, they remained nice and chewy.
