These are fun little Krispie Treat Party Bites! Go ahead and grab a handful!

If you’ve been reading my site for any length of time you’ll know that my husband “doesn’t like” krispie treats. The fact that we are still married is a minor miracle, I’d say.

BUT one thing he IS obsessed with is “poppable” desserts. That’s what he calls them anyway. He wants one-bite treats. I guess multiple bites is too much of a commitment for him? I really have no idea…

But I will tell you after the 3,546 time I’ve heard, “this would be great if it were ‘one bite'” you’d be ready to get out your murdering sword too. Trust me on this.

So in my quest to please him, but also please myself (duh), I’m aiming to distract him away from the fact that these are indeed Rice Krispie Treats by making them…well… Poppable Krispie Treats. One-Bite Krispie Treats. Whatever, you get the idea.

Pay no attention to the Rice Krispie Treatness that lies under the sprinkles, dear husband. Focus on how effortless it is to eat.

Let the krispie mixture cool a few minutes so it’s easier to handle and then roll a tablespoon sized portion into a ball and then into millions of tiny sprinkles.

  • 1/3 cup multicolored nonpareil sprinkles
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 cups mini marshmallows

  1. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Place the sprinkles in a small bowl and set this aside as well.
  3. In a medium sauce pot over low heat melt the butter. Add the mini marshmallows into the melted butter and stir frequently until the marshmallows are melted and smooth. Immediately remove this from the heat.

    I was already planning on making Rice Krispie treats for an open house this week, now I am going to make these! (and my husband doesn’t like Rice Krispie treats either!)

    You make me laugh! Ah…yes, men….my hubby does some similar things, haha! These are perfect little treats!! I’m afraid I could eat them all in one sitting šŸ˜‰ I add 1 tsp of vanilla to my rice krispies treats when I make a 9×13 (YUMMMMM!) – try it, you’ll like it I promise!

    Great idea, how come I never thought to roll them into tiny balls? Maybe because I enjoy stuffing the HUGE pan shaped ones into my mouth! Thanks for the adapted recipe for a smaller amount, going to make some treat for the teacher’s lounge tonight.

    Does that mean your hubby wants multiple one bites, or he will just take one and that’s it?!

    Btw, I know I don’t comment here a lot, But I check this site at least 3 times a week. I am so excited about getting your cookbook.
