Rice Krispie Treat Pizza

This Rice Krispie treat pizza is such a unique and cool dessert idea! Made with marshmallows, Rice Krispie cereal, and the candy of your choice!
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.

    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*

    Never met a Peep, I didn't like. I absolutely LOVE something that my daughter and I can do together. Thanks so much! She was so excited to see this!! You are so creative.

  3. Cupcake Crazy Gem

    Oh I love everything about this! He used to be the bass to your lead! If you weren't so witty, this would be bringing a tear to my eye right now!! Love the pizza, it looks so yummy and so Easter-y!!!

  4. Jocelyn

    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???

  5. Colleen

    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

  7. Joanne

    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!

  8. Jennifer

    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.

    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 !

  11. Polar Bear

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

  12. Barbara

    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!

  13. Karly

    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 🙂

  19. The Captain's Daughter

    And by the way… the son part. I so totally get that. Hang in there! It doesn't get too much better, but hang in there nonetheless, we need you around here!

    You are soooo cute!! I have a teenage son and I remember the days when I experienced him growing up, overnight. I wish I had this recipe then…Lol Thanks for sharing!!

  21. Vera

    I made this today March 30,2013 for my 31/2 year old grandson is coming home for Easter;) and figured since time is short instead of waiting till late when they arrive to make cookies I’d make this then he has time to color eggs <3 But I forgot I did get rid of my old pizza pans when Christmas was over, so today I used my medium size cookie sheet and used the Birthday cake blue chicks and Hershey coated eggs and spring sprinkles to decorate it:0) HE LOVES SPRINKLES<3 I did take pics so Cute. Thank you so much.Have a Happy and Blessed Easter Season @—}–}–}–

    How adorable . . . and easy looking. The best thing about Easter is Peeps! It used to be our mother’s were toooo embarrassing — in every way — when we turned 13. My son was about the same age when “IT” happened. So, now it’s 8 years old? Oh, no.

  23. Rhonda

    ok am I reading this right you have 8 c regular rice crispies then 4 c fruity them another 8 c regular and yet another 4 c fruity…. holy cow thats 24 cups I never realized it took that much! Or is that a typo? Just making sure so I can get all my ingredients and not have to run back to the store…….

    1. Shelly

      Yep, it is a glitch I think that happened when this old recipe was converted over to a printable recipe! So sorry! I fixed it…it’s a total of 12 cups!
