Nutter Butter Krispie Treats


I tend to be a fairly predictable person.

I, generally, don’t “keep people on their toes”. I don’t “fly by the seat of my pants”.


I like the norm.  The status quo.  A schedule.

I work well with structure and repetition.

That doesn’t translate into boring…I am just prepared.  Isn’t that what we try and teach our children?


When people say they are looking for “spontaneity” and “excitement” I just don’t get it.

I have never been that person.


I like what I like, I do what I do, and I don’t need anyone coming in all willy-nilly messing up my order.

Don’t pop over unannounced.  I don’t have a “pop over-able personality”.  I need time to plan.  To  prepare.  To “wrap my mind” around the fact that you are coming over.

You know, to go over possible talking points in my head…to plan snacks…to choose a nail color.

I don’t do spontaneous vacations.  The thought of a get up and go trip gives me anxiety.  There is far too much to do before a vacation.  I need weeks, if not months to prepare.  I mean it takes me days to pick out my “airplane outfit”, which is totally a thing, by the way.


I hear people when they are talking about finding a boyfriend or a husband, “He needs to be spontaneous”….why?

Trust me you do not want a spontaneous husband…one who is always going to be the “fun” parent while you are stuck doing homework and dishes.


I am still a fun person.  At least that’s what I tell myself.  I just like to plan my fun.


So back to predictability…

You come here and you know what you are going to get.  That’s comforting.

I mean, what if I got all spontaneous and decided to make a cake out of beets or something.  You would be disappointed…

And my goal is not to disappoint you.  Along with being completely non-spontaneous, I am also quite needy, apparently.


So in keeping with tradition around these parts, I have made another krispie treat for you.

It’s a good one.  Really good.

Nutter Butter Krispie Treats.

I nailed it.


First get you some Nutter Butter cookies.  These are my husband’s most favorite store-bought cookie, behind the Golden Double Stuf Oreo and the Samoa Girl Scout.  Man loves him some preservatives.

You will need a whole pack of these lovies.

And then it might hurt your heart a little, but you have to chop them to smithereens.

Now go about making rice krispie treats as you normally would, but mix in the cookies…

Once you have your cookies, krispies and marshmallowy mix together, press it into a prepared pan…

When it is ready, go ahead and cut it into squares.

And it’s very important to taste test.

Nutter Butters + Krispies + Marshmallows = love.


Nutter Butter Krispie Treats
Makes approx 30 squares
  • 1 (16 oz) package of Nutter Butter Cookies, chopped
  • 6 cups rice krispie cereal
  • ½ cup butter
  • 2 (10.5 oz) bags mini marshmallows
  1. Line a 9x13 baking dish with foil and spray lightly with cooking spray.
  2. In a large sauce pan melt your butter over low heat.
  3. Still on low heat, add the marshmallows to the melted butter and stir until marshmallows are melted.
  4. Remove from heat and stir in your rice krispies and chopped Nutter Butter cookies.
  5. When combined, pour mixture into prepared pan and press evenly.
  6. Allow to cool, about 20-30 minutes and cut into squares.
Store in an airtight container for up to 3 days

oh holy moly – they look amazing. And don’t pop in on me. If you do, don’t mind the toys, the dog hair and the cheerios-as-a-snack.

Holy Yum!

I didn’t think it could be done. Take my all time favorite treat in the world …..and make it even better ! I will have to do multiple taste testings on this one to make double damn sure :) And on the “drop in unannounced” attitude? I suggest. No. dont do it. Thank you. I wholeheartly agree ! You took the words right outta my mouth. The only way I would enjoy an unexpected visitor was if they stuck that pan of krispie treats in the door first……then and only then I would consider letting them in. Unless, it was… Read more »

I am the same way, I hate when people say they will just pop in if they are passing by. No I need a call or warning, I also hate not being able to plan for things. Trips, I need to be able to make lists, and go over them and be ready. No last minute stuff for me. I so hate that. And I love knowing you are going to be making stuff I like so yay you!

February 8, 2012 8:07 am

i’ve never been a krispy treat gal but that’s all changing now…add some nutterbutter cookies and i’m all for it!

February 8, 2012 8:08 am

This is a brilliant idea. I love nutter butters. But I don’t love people popping in. I’m with Mary Beth – if you pop in, don’t mind the mess!

February 8, 2012 8:12 am

Genius!! I LOVE Nutter Butters!!

February 8, 2012 8:15 am

Seriously love this post…my thoughts exactly!

February 8, 2012 8:20 am

Now that is my kind of rice krispy!!! I hear ya on the whole “give me time to plan” talk!!! I like a good schedule too…no spontaneous actions here!!!!

February 8, 2012 8:21 am

Where is the “propose marriage” button?!

February 8, 2012 8:45 am

Ohhhhh – I can’t resist Nutter Butters! YUM!

February 8, 2012 8:46 am

I have been dreaming of nutter butter treats for months and never got around to making them… looks like you made them just as delicious as I could have imagined! Oh and spontaneity is overrated.

February 8, 2012 8:55 am

Spontaneity is totally overrated. But Krispie treats are not…and these sound perfect!!

February 8, 2012 9:22 am

I went through a HUGE Nutter Butter phase a few years ago. I think these treats could be dangerous in my house! lol

February 8, 2012 10:12 am

Oh. my. word. These look so good!!

February 8, 2012 10:12 am

Oh. my. word. These look so good!!

February 8, 2012 10:20 am

I haven’t had Nutter Butters in years! I better get going with this recipe!

February 8, 2012 11:07 am

Taste testing is always a must! Sometimes is takes 4-5 samples though with things that look this wonderful. Gotta make sure it’s not a hoax.

February 8, 2012 11:47 am

I make nutter butter bars but have combined it with peanut butter and nutella, never with marshmallow…I need to try these. They look awesome, Shelley!

February 8, 2012 11:56 am

I’m just like you with the need for structure and plans. I get upset when people suggest getting together in an hour…noooo…I had other things in mind for the evening!

Food is different though! I always want to try new recipes. This one looks great. I remembe adding peanut butter to the melted marshmallow mixture as a kid. This takes that one step further! Yum!

February 8, 2012 12:03 pm

Yum! If I made these my husband would probably want them dipped in chocolate too.. either way I think they would be fabulous!

February 8, 2012 12:06 pm

I’ll take the predictability. I made red velvet cupcakes with beets, and didn’t care for them. So please leave the beets out of your baked goods!! And give me about a pan of these, because I could totally put them down all by myself!

OMG! Perfect combination! Can’t wait to stir these babies up!

February 8, 2012 3:04 pm

Im with you. My husband grew up in a house when they take trips they drive as far as they can and then “find a hotel” when they get there. Not happpening with me I have to know where I am going to rest my head ahead of time. The “airplane outfit” totally a thing I have it also. Great treats. LOVE your blog and recipes. :)

February 8, 2012 3:38 pm

Dang, those look good, I LOVE Nutter Butters. BTW, your intro CRACKED ME UP. Just yesterday, my daughter and I were looking for some V-Day treats for her to bring for her teachers, stumbled across a recipe that called for beets. When I explained to her what those are, we both went ‘Yeah… no.” lol

February 8, 2012 4:43 pm . Here’s a yummy looking beet cake if you want to be spontaneous!

February 8, 2012 5:25 pm

I totally get planning for a trip, I dont do spontaneous its just unnerving…predictable is much better..and these nutter butter cookies, totally NOT predictable otherwise everyone would be making them all the time because of their awesomeness. Sadly most people are making regular krispy treats and missing out on this goodness. Thank you for sharing your “spontaneous” side

February 8, 2012 5:27 pm

What a great idea – I had never thought of putting other things into rice krispie treats. They look delicious and I’m sure would be a big hit with my kids! Thanks for sharing.

February 8, 2012 6:38 pm

This sounds like a perfect combination! I like knowing I will always find something sweet and delicious when I come visit your blog…..your predictibility in that sense keeps me checking back :)

February 8, 2012 9:26 pm

You’re right…I’d be seriously disappointed if there weren’t a peanutty delicious treat here today. Beets just would NOT have cut it.

February 8, 2012 9:38 pm

Oh my goodness, these look heavenly! I love nutter butters, so I’m sure these taste even better than they look. It does seem like 2 bags of marshmallows is a lot, but I trust you!

February 8, 2012 9:42 pm

I am the exact same way. I am such a planner that when my set schedule is thrown off I go a little crazy. Rice Krispie treats are good – they just so happen to be my old stand-bys! My favorite part is definitely taste testing the end pieces. Mmmmmm! 😀

February 8, 2012 10:36 pm

Good God, woman! Will there EVER come a day that you post something and I DON”T want to lick my computer screen??? Love this!

February 9, 2012 12:21 am

These look soo delicious! Nutter Butters are the BEST! :)

February 9, 2012 9:25 am

OMG I want to make these ASAP and throw in some dark chocolate morsels!!!! Or m&m’s

I am so making these, my husband loves nutter butter cookies too! Thanks!

February 9, 2012 11:47 am

I heart you :)

February 9, 2012 1:29 pm

I just made Rice Krispie Treats the other night and am ready for another batch. I’ve got to try these. I love nutter butters.

February 9, 2012 4:53 pm

I have never had nutterbutter cookies before, but the next time I’m in the states, it looks like I’m going to have to try to find them! Looks delicious!

February 9, 2012 6:04 pm

The idea of a pop-in scares me. Seriously. Our doorbell rings and I “shush” everyone and run to the peephole to assess the situation. Who ARE these pop-in people?

I’m pretty sure my son would faint if I made these. You are the QUEEN of the KRISPIE!!!

February 10, 2012 9:51 am

I made these last night and they are TO DIE FOR. Such a simple addition, but they turn out so wonderfully. Thanks!!

February 10, 2012 11:13 am

This looks so good! Nutter butter cookies use to be my favorite cookies. Im saving this recipe.

February 11, 2012 4:26 pm

just made these and they are AMAZING!! thanks for sharing and you could pop over my house any time. :)

February 11, 2012 4:29 pm

These are the bomb!!! I am so thankful that I opened my Google Reader before I went to the grocery store today. I immediately added mallows & Nutter Butters to my shopping list and made them as soon as I got home. My taste buds want to say, THANK YOU! :)

February 17, 2012 3:35 pm

I love your blog so much! I love your recipes! I must try these and soon!


[…] I know what you’re thinking already! You read the title and were like “Duh!” Right? I know, and I can’t tell you why neither you nor I thought of this ourselves. I know we shouldn’t sit here and beat ourselves up wondering how on earth we did not put two and two together, but seriously, how did we miss this brilliant idea? And tell me that Oreo Krispie Treats didn’t just pop into your head. Now the possibilities seem endless! So get stocked up on the Rice Krispies and get crazy with some marshmallows and cookies. Thanks to the… Read more »
