It’s time to get this summer baking started, meaning cold drinks, no-bake desserts, fruity foods, and S’MORES! Before I even started this blog, I created a long list of S’mores flavoured desserts I wanted to make. Three years later and I’ve barely covered ½ the list! That’s totally unacceptable, so I’ve gotta step my s’mores game up.
I’ve got about 4 s’more-tastic recipes planned for the summer, but let’s start with the easiest — S’mores Rice Krispie Treats!
S’mores Rice Krispie Treats
Today I’m gonna show you how to make the ooey-ist, gooey-ist rice krispies with a campfire twist! The base of this recipe is a simple rice cereal + marshmallows + butter, but we’ll be mixing in loads of extra marshmallows, graham crackers and milk chocolate chips.
To make things even more special and campfire-y, we’re gonna top the rice krispies with even MORE marshmallows and whip out our trusty kitchen torch to toast it up!
How to Make Rice Krispies
I feel like rice krispies is the first thing every amateur baker makes because it’s completely fool-proof! I remember making my first rice krispie treats when I was 9 and, even though I barely knew what I was doing, they came out perrrrfect!
I’m gonna assume a majority of the people reading this are over 9, so you’re already at an advantage. Let me show you how easy it is to make rice krispies!
This Recipe Comes Together in 7 Easy Steps
- Melt the Butter: throw that butter into a saucepan and let it melt.
- Melt the Marshmallows: you’re gonna be melting 10 cups of mini marshmallows, so make sure you use a big saucepan. Preferably non-stick so the marshmallows can just slide out
- Add the Vanilla and Salt: add some flavour and cut back the sweetness of all those marshmallows!
- Mix with the Rice Krispie Cereal: pour the rice krispies into a large bowl. Make sure the bowl and your rubber spatula has been sprayed with non-stick spray to make mixing the sticky marshmallows a lot easier.
- Fold in the Marshmallows, Graham Crackers and Chocolate Chips: 1 cup of each. You can crush or break up the graham crackers in your hands to keep large chunks, or you can completely blend it into crumbs. I used milk chocolate chips because they pair the best with s’mores, but you can use dark or semisweet if you prefer. You could even use real chopped chocolate or mini chocolate chips!
- Press into Pan & Set: spray the 9x13/inch pan with cooking spray and line it with parchment that’s long enough to hang off the edge. If using foil, spray that with foil too. Also spray your hands to help you easily press the rice krispies into an even layer without getting them all sticky. That non-stick spray will be your best friend in this recipe, trust me! Let it set up for about 1-2 hours.
- Slice: lift the krispies out of the pan. Then get your best friend, Mr. Non-Stick Spray, and spray your knife before slicing.
You can leave them like that, or you could top them with more mini marshmallows and toast them before throwing on a few chocolate chips and crushed graham crackers. This is a great decoration if you plan to serve at a party or event, it lets people know that these rice krispies are s’mores flavoured!

Let’s get baking!
- ½ cup salted butter
- 11 cups mini marshmallows, divided + more for topping
- ½ tsp pure vanilla extract
- ½ tsp salt
- 9 cups Rice Krispie cereal
- 1 cup crushed graham crackers + more for topping
- 1 cup milk chocolate chips + more for topping
- Spray a 9x13 inch pan with cooking spray and line with parchment paper, making sure there’s 2-inches of parchment hanging off of both sides of the pan. Set aside.
- Add butter to a large non-stick pot and melt over medium heat.
- Once melted, add 10 cups of mini marshmallows and stir until they’re completely melted and combined with the butter.
- Remove from heat and stir in vanilla and salt.
- If your pot is big enough, pour in the Rice Krispies. If not, add the Rice Krispies to a large bowl that’s been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.
- Spray a rubber spatula with cooking spray and scrape the melted marshmallows into the bowl of Rice Krispies. Mix and fold until all the Krispies are coated.
- Add 1 cup of mini marshmallows, chocolate chips and crushed graham crackers and mix to combine.
- Spray your (clean) hands with cooking spray and use them to scrape the Rice Krispies out of the bowl and into your prepared pan.
- Press the Krispies into an even layer. If it begins to stick to your hands, spray them with a little more cooking spray.
- Cover with plastic wrap and allow to set at room temperature for about 1 hour. Slice and enjoy!
- Optional: top each bar with a handful of mini marshmallows and toast with a kitchen torch. Garnish with more chocolate chips and crushed graham crackers, if desired!
- Store: Bars should be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for 2-3 days. They get super hard after a while, so make sure to finish them fast!
