Change up those Rice Krispie bars....For my favorite cubs.....Who liked my cartoon

"We use only the finest ingredients"

Reinvent these classic puffed rice cereal dessert bars by adding in delicious treats and using fun cereals. The possibilities are endless, but here are some of our favourite ways to make over the classic dessert bars.

Classic Marshmallow Cereal Bar Recipe:
Serves: 6-8
Prep time: 5 minutes

s60 mL (4 tbsp) butter
1000 mL (4 cups) mini marshmallows
1500 mL (6 cups) puffed rice cereal

Melt butter in a large pan over low heat. Use a rubber spatula to stir in mini marshmallows and melt completely. Remove from heat
Add cereal. Mix together until combined
Evenly press cereal mixture into a pan coated with cooking spray or wax paper and allow to cool*
Cut into squares. Store in an airtight container for 3-4 days

*Tip: Use sheets of wax paper to press the cereal mixture into the coated pan so your hands don’t get sticky.

Tip: You can freeze cereal bars (separated by wax paper) for up to six weeks.


Cereal Bar Makeover
Switch up the classic cereal bars by mixing in your favourite candy or sweet treats. Repeat the steps above, but in step 2, add in:

250 mL (1 cup) of:
  • Chocolate sprinkles OR Rainbow sprinkles OR Chocolate sandwich cookies, chopped OR Dried fruit OR Chocolate hazelnut spread
Cereal Switchup
A fun way to mix up classic cereal bars is to substitute 1500 mL (6 cups) of your favourite cereal for the puffed rice in the original recipe. Some tasty options include:

  • Fruit loop rings
  • Chocolate puffed rice cereal
  • Frosted corn flakes
  • Cinnamon toast cereal
  • Cereal with mini marshmallows already in it
  • Apple rings
  • Peanut butter cup cereal
  • Puffed wheat cereal
  • Fruity puffed rice cereal
Tip: In order to fill out the bars and eliminate air, blend in 250 or 375 mL (1 or 1 1/2 cups) of the substitute cereal before mixing it with the melted marshmallows. This will help keep the bigger cereal pieces together.

Cereal Bar Toppings
Once the bars are cooled, add a sweet touch with icing, chocolate frosting, hot fudge, caramel or peanut butter for an over-the-top treat.

Now wasn't that fun?? Now clean up kitchen or your mama might spank your musty butts

Love you guys


  1. Aunt Jeannie , we love making krispie bars , we never make them with peanut butter because we like to share with our friends at school and they may be allergic to peanuts and some may not know it . we have all types of cereal , everyone gets a different cereal when daddy takes us grocery shopping . mama makes a list and give it to Eloise .
    Chris , Sheryl and Bubba likes your post also . sometime we cook at Sheryl house and we cook at MeMa house . These krispies are different and we will make a lot of them .
    I asked poppa to ask Miss . Dora would she like some to sell at the flea market .
    We make the potato chip peanut butter cookies for daddy office to sell to the people that work there to raise money for Nanook .
    Aunt Jeannie we always put up a sign on anything we make for them so they will know it has peanut product in them .
    You can make uncle Brain some cookies they are so good , we always clean the kitchen after we use it , mama said if we do not we will get bugs .
    We visit one of our cousins and we do not visit in her house anymore , she live on the back and she is uncle Gerald granddaughter their kitchen is full of bugs mama say they are roaches .
    we eat everywhere in the house , we clean up behind our selves , aunt Jeannie we do not eat in the bathroom .
    We thank you for the recipes . Man and Bubba said they wish you live on the compound they would play with you . mam said he would tell Jonny to ride you in his golf cart because you are to big to ride in his car .
    We love you very much and so happy you are getting better .

  2. Hi Jenny and Sha,
    It is very kind and thoughtful of you not to give school mates anything with peanuts in them. What a great idea to sell some at the flea market. Wrap them in cellophane and you could sell them for 25 cents each or whatever you think they are worth. You could make them colorful enough to attracts people's eyes. We all like pretty food.
    Good heavens, don't go in that kitchen if it has roaches. They usually only go in dirty places.
    Good for you for cleaning up after yourselves. Everyone dreams of having kids like that. You cook and you clean can come and live at my house any time.
    Uncle Brian eats too many cookies already. I think I will start putting his medicine in cookies so I will be sure he takes it. I would take a ride with Man or Jonny any day. It sounds like fun.
    Have fun my luvs. Life is a blast and you only get to do it once.
    I love you guys, Aunt jeannie
