Rice Krispie Treat Pizza

So, I was told to “act my age” this morning.
The disher of the advice was my 7 year old son.
He told me this as I was playing air guitar.
That’s normal, right?
Air guitar in the morning?
It’s a strange phenomenon when you go from being the only girl in your son’s eyes, to a clear and major embarrassment.  It happens overnight.  Watch out.
My air guitar riffs might be the cause of this embarrassment, but there was a day when he would come over and play bass to my lead.
ANNDD the other day I went up to his school and he pretended he didn’t know me.
It was a sad day.
Sad day, indeed.
But I know he will come around.  Because I make him treats.
And I will hold them over his head…
“No cupcakes unless you kiss your mother..in public”
“No cookies unless you hold my hand when we cross the street”
…you get the idea.
I’m not above it.  I have to use what I’ve got.
It’s resourceful.
 And it’s worth it.
So while on my mission to “embrace the immature” I will share with you what I ate for dinner…err..dessert last night.
Because you never get too old for a krispie treat…right?
I gave these an Easter spin, because of the upcoming holiday, but please decorate with whatever candy you most enjoy!

The recipe is super simple and can be made in minutes! It’s a great recipe to get your kids involved with!

 *Here’s my fave krispie trick…spray one side of a sheet of waxed paper with cooking spray and press krispies into pan.  Works AWESOME!  
Press evenly over pizza pan.
Now top with your favorite frosting.

Top with your favorite candies!
Slice it up.
Now excuse me while I go fill the gaping hole my son ripped in my heart with Rice Krispie Pizza.  It has to be done.
Rice Krispie Treat Pizza
  • 8 cups Rice Krispie cereal
  • 4 cups Fruity Pebble cereal
  • ½ cup butter
  • 2 (10.5 oz) bags mini marshmallows
  • 1 (7oz) container of Marshmallow creme
  • ½ cup butter, room temperature
  • 1½ cups powdered sugar
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • Peeps and M&Ms to decorate
  1. Prepare 16″ round pizza pan by spraying lightly with nonstick spray
  2. Over low heat melt your butter in a large sauce pan (I used my 8qt pot)
  3. When the butter is melted add your marshmallows, stirring until melted.
  4. When the marshmallows are melted remove from heat.
  5. Stir in both your cereals until combined.
  6. When combined transfer to your prepared pizza pan.
  1. Beat together your marshmallow cream and butter until smooth.
  2. Slowly add in your vanilla and powdered sugar and continue mixing for 1 minute on medium speed until combined and smooth.
  3. Spread the frosting onto your pizza and decorate with the Peeps and M&Ms

This is so cute! And I love the bribing aspect….my son now lives in mortal fear that I will embarrass him in public, all because I shot the straw wrapper off of my straw at him during dinner 😛 he used to think that was hilarious. *sigh*

This sounds perfect for dinner! and I understand you completely…my 7 year old has been doing the exact same thing to me lately! Where did the sweet little boy go???

April 15, 2011 8:07 pm

This looks so yummy! I think I would eat this whole thing by myself.

April 15, 2011 8:19 pm

Oh WOW, what a great thing to make with my grandkids.
With the cereal, what a great breakfast this would be.
You come up with the neatest ideas.
Thank you

Definitely one of those things that he'll grow out of. I'm totally okay with holding my mother's hand. And I'm 24.

I will also take any excuse to frost anything on this earth. I do love frosting oh so very much. What a pretty pastel easter treat!

That is the cutest thing EVER. My kids would love it! (And I totally had to giggle at your story.)

April 16, 2011 1:46 am

ZOMG… I am in love. :) My two boys are 2 1/2 and 1 next week. They idolize my dance parties, air guitar, and how I can rap every single word to Baby Got Back. I'm gonna take it as long as I can.

April 16, 2011 2:27 am

So stinkin' cute. And… yum!

This is a great idea. Just the right amount of Fruity Pebbles for Easter color! I also appreciate the recipe for marshmallow cream frosting. I've never tried it!

This is adorable and I think my husband would do tricks for a bite. I love the treats for loves from your son- they grow up too fast !

This looks so cute! My family LOVES rice kris pie treats – I'm definitely going to make it for Sunday! Thanks!!!!

April 18, 2011 1:24 pm

Been there, done that, but take hope. When they grow up, suddenly you'll become smarter and the kids will no longer be embarrassed, they'll be proud of their young, with-it mother. :)

Love this idea of a rice krispie pizza. Sending on to my DIL, cause if I made this, I'd eat the whole thing!

April 18, 2011 1:52 pm

So awesome. I posted a link on ediblecrafts.craftgossip.com

My son and I used to go on dates. Dates to the park, dates to the movies, dates for dinner…then one day? "It's not a DATE, Mom. Gross." Broke my heart right in two.

I think this pizza would definitely help us both heal.

So I made this today and it's totally cute! I tinted my icing yellow and used sprinkles instead of M&Ms and renamed it a Rice Krispie PEEPza :)
