Updated June 25th – Congratulations to the winner of our Rice Krispies Treats Recipe Cookbook giveway, Susan R.!

I’ve decided to enter my star shaped Rice Krispies Treats with raspberry sorbet, Cool Whip, and fresh berries recipe in the Rice Krispies Treats recipe challenge I’m participating in as a Rice Krispies ambassador along with 9 other great bloggers.

Being a part of the July 4th Rice Krispies Treats Recipe Challenge has been a blast for me despite the fact that I’ve been traveling and haven’t been able to make as many recipes as I would have liked.  I was able to spend several hours creating a few different recipes and have finally settled on my favorite.. Very Berry Rice Krispies Treats. The other two recipes I made but am not submitting for the contest are (1) Rice Krispies Treats cup filled with sorbet and fresh fruit, with a chocolate rim, and (2) Rice Krispies Treats chocolate covered bowl filled with ice cream and fresh fruit.

My kids, 10 and 4, had so much fun helping me with the Rice Krispies Treats Recipe Challenge.  Madelyn stirred the melting marshmallows and helped put the Rice Krispies in the mix while Sebastian filmed what turned out to be a very shaky video of me going through the entire process of making these delicious Rice Krispies Treats.  I am so proud of Sebastian for trying!  He did a great job.

Star shaped Rice Krispies Treats with raspberry sorbet, Cool Whip, and fresh berries


  • Make Rice Krispies Treats as usual
    • Melt 3 tablespoons butter in large pan on low heat
    • Mix marshmallows in and stir constantly until completely melted
    • Remove from heat
    • Stir in 6 cups Rice Krispies
    • SPECIAL – Separate Rice Krispies Treats mix into two 13×9 inch pans to make two thin layers
  • Refrigerate for 30 minutes to an hour – not necessary, but keeps the sorbet you are going to put on the soon to be cut out stars, from melting quickly
  • Once cool, cut Rice Krispies Treats into star shapes with a cookie cutter and put the individual stars on wax paper
  • Coat 1/2 of the cool Rice Krispies Treats stars with raspberry sorbet (substitute with your favorite flavor, ice cream, or frozen yogurt)
  • Place a star on top of the sorbet covered Rice Krispies Treats stars
  • Top with Cool Whip, strawberries, and blueberries
  • Garnish the plate with fresh fruit and enjoy immediately!  ;)

I like the Rice Krispie Treats made with peanut butter and butterscotch chips – just the way my grandma used to make them! She used to make them for my brother and me and we would eat them on her boat. She and grandpa sold the boat before my younger siblings were old enough to go boating, so it’s a special memory that my brother and I share.


Lucy Schwartz June 23, 2010 at 11:12 pm

I like the basic treats with Lucky Charms in them .


Susan R. June 23, 2010 at 10:36 pm

Well, I’m definitely going to have to get a lot more creative for my Rice Krispies Treats! I’ve been just making them plain for years. I’m missing out!!! I obviously need a recipe book to point me in the right direction. My poor deprived children would be forever in your debt!


Ellen C. June 23, 2010 at 10:17 pm

I like to add peanut butter chips to my treats. Thanks for the chance.


Kate June 23, 2010 at 9:14 pm

We make cakes out of them. Once we made a 2 layer cake: brownies, krispies, and cheesecake frosting to top! It was delicious!!


Jammie June 23, 2010 at 9:07 pm

I like mixing in some peanut butter in with mine and drizzling with some chocolate.


Denise S June 23, 2010 at 8:43 pm

I’ve only made the traditional variety, but would love to try some new recipes.


Tammy June 23, 2010 at 7:26 pm

Ed Nemmers June 23, 2010 at 6:35 pm

Jason June 23, 2010 at 5:09 pm

Brenda June 23, 2010 at 2:49 pm

Made round rice krispie treats with orange food coloring, and used brown decorator tube icing to draw lines to look like a basketball for my daughters basketball banquet, many comments, thanks for the giveaway.


Louis June 23, 2010 at 1:03 pm

this book would be great for making kid approved reecipes where they can help in the kitchen


Denise B. June 23, 2010 at 12:06 pm

Yum! Sounds good.. and simple.


Jennifer Loverro June 23, 2010 at 10:45 am

I like to use a flower cookie cutter and cut the treats then add a popsicle stick and insert them into a flower pot. to make a fun kids treat


Alicia June 23, 2010 at 12:21 pm

I thought about putting the Rice Krispies Treats on popsicle sticks because Sebastian isn’t terribly fond of sticky stuff.. but he did fine and gobbled the Rice Krispies Treats down without a problem.


Harriet June 23, 2010 at 10:44 am

Your rice krispie cup with the chocolate rim and sorbet is an interesting idea for presenting dessert.


Doug June 23, 2010 at 10:42 am

Never considered that rice krispies could be anything other than cereal or treats. So, treats, would be my favorite recipe.


shawna June 23, 2010 at 10:03 am

I like a good ole’ rice crispy bar with m&m’s in it.


debp June 23, 2010 at 8:37 am

My mom has passed on, but I have great memories of her Rice Krispie treats. They always came out perfect, and to this day,it makes me smile when I think about her in the kitchen doling out those sweet sticky treats.

Kelly Ann T. June 22, 2010 at 11:59 pm

My favorite are my Rice Krispies with toffee chips added to the marshmellows. I also like them with the caramel chips, but I can only find those chips at Christmas time.


Paula Hafner June 22, 2010 at 11:04 pm

My Dad is a minister. When I was 9, an older lady in the church, made my sister and I a bunny out of Rice Krispy Treats. We were amazed and thrilled. She put plastic eggs filled with mini jelly beans all around it. Mom has a picture of us holding the rabbit with huge smiles on our faces.


cindella hope mcnair June 22, 2010 at 10:45 pm
