Festive Fall Rice Krispie Treats

A few weeks ago my mom and I decided to make some Candy Corn Rice Krispies Treats. They’re easy AND delicious!

If you’ve ever made Rice Krispie Treats before, you know that they’re super duper simple to make, and these are too! The only difference is you add some food coloring to the melted marshmallows, cut the krispies into triangles instead of squares, and then dip them in white and yellow candy melts.

When you’re finished, they look JUST like candy corns!! Candy corn always reminds me of fall, because usually that’s the only time stores have it. I think these treats are perfect to make for you fall parties!!

How to Make Candy Corn Rice Crispy Treats

Like I said, the directions for these rice Krispie treats are pretty much the same as original treats.

MELT. Melt the butter and marshmallows in the microwave

MIX. Before adding the rice Krispies cereal, stir in some orange food coloring. Once the melted marshmallows are as orange as you want them, stir in the cereal until it’s well coated.

PRESS. Place in a greased pan and let it sit for at least 15 minutes.

Here are some tips for cutting the rice crispy treats into triangles:

  • If you use a 9×13 pan, cut diagonal lines across the pan and then cut the diagonal strips into triangles.
  • OR use multiple smaller circle pans and just cut into triangles as though you were slicing a pie.

DIP. Once the rice crispy treats are cut into triangles, melt the candy melts as directed on the package. Dip the triangle dips in white candy melts, and the bottoms in yellow melts.

SET. Place on parchment paper until they have set. ENJOY!

Tips & Storing Info

  • Use fresh marshmallows. 
  • Don’t over heat the marshmallows
  • Press firmly, but not too tightly.

Not all rice Krispie cereals are gluten free so check the box to be sure.

Be sure that the chocolate is completely set before storing. STORE in an airtight container, at room temperature, for up to a week. 

To FREEZE, place them between layers of parchment paper in a freezer safe bag or container. Keep them in the freezer for 3-6 months. Thaw before eating.

    Hi, Kristyn! Did you use the 10- or 16-ounce bag of mini marshmallows for this recipe? Thanks, Cheryl

    1. Lil'Luna Team says:

      You could use either!! Both will result in yummy Rice Krispie Treats, but the 16 oz size will obviously be a bit more marshmallowy. So whatever you prefer. 🙂

    I’ve made your other Rice Krispie monsters and like that this recipe is a general “fall” treat that can be used for Halloween and into thanksgiving. The candy coating is easy to dip and the treat tastes great.
