Do Reese’s Rice Krispies Need to be Refrigerated?
Reese’s Krispies can be stored at room temperature in air tight containment (zip-top bag with no air in it), for 1 to 2 days without any ill effect. They keep longer than they last, if you get my drift. You can refrigerate them.
If you like this recipe for, Reese’s Krispies make sure you check out the MilkyWay Krispies, and Reese’s Crumble! This post is a repost from years and years ago, but seeing as how this recipe, no matter what I do remains number one on our site, I thought it would be a good idea to bring it back to life. I’ve left the original post on here, so you get to see our kids from almost 6 years ago!
Why Are My Reese’s Rice Krispie Treats Hard?
Who has left over Halloween candy?!
I know I do. I was trying to think up a delicious way to enjoy all of that candy other than just eating piece by piece and I came up with these. Oh! I think I forgot to even tell you about Halloween!
Ok, first of all, our sweet little one had just healed from Croup. And a bad version of it. She’s only 16 lbs so to be hit with an extremely bad strain of croup was a big deal. By Halloween it was just a bad cold, so all of the scary not breathing, or troubled breathing had thankfully ended. Two steroids is what it took and I pray it doesn’t ever happen again. Croup is quite honestly one of the worst things ever.
Anyway, last year I had wanted to dress our oldest up as Rainbow Brite, but I am sooooo glad I waited until this year. Aren’t they darling?!
Are Reese’s Rice Krispies Gluten Free?
Reese’s Rice Krispies are not actually gluten-free. They contain malt and, sometimes, barley for a flavor enhancer. Besides this, they are made in a gluten-filled vicinity which makes them officially non-gluten-free.

- 1 Cup Corn Syrup
- 1 1/3 Cup Creamy Peanut Butter

We figured that if the original was so good a double chocolate version would be amazing, and it was!
Milky Way candybars were my favorite as a kid so why not combine them with a fresh take on our famous reese’s krispies?
