Snickerdoodle Rice Krispie Treat Recipe

Just when I thought there might not be anything more delicious than my Perfect Krispie Treat Recipe, these Snickerdoodle Treats come on up in my life. They basically sat down on my couch, curled up with my favorite blanket and stole my remote.

In other words, they have made themselves fully comfortable in my personal biz.

Which I guess, fine… it’s mostly my fault. I mean I AM the one that keeps inviting them into my life, but friends, make them and you will understand.

They are BY FAR the favorite RKT in my little world right now. I’ve made them so many times since I developed the recipe a few weeks ago. I seriously just can’t stop. If you have all the ingredients to make regular krispie treats, you can make these…assuming you have ground cinnamon in your spice drawer.

AND yes, of course I am already thinking ahead and planning on swapping out the cinnamon for Pumpkin Spice. Because duh.

Anyhow. Make these as soon as you can. You will love me forever. And ever ever ever.

Snickerdoodle Rice Krispie Treats made with browned butter, extra marshmallows and cinnamon sugar. Made extra delicious with vanilla extract and a pinch of salt!

Of course I have included my signature extra marshmallow method. Also, I have always a wanted a signature. Turns out marshmallows are the hand I was dealt.

Just like a regular RKT you melt the butter and add the marshmallows.

How to Make Snickerdoodle Rice Krispie Treats

In this case, melt the butter and keep going for a few minutes, browning the butter and adding extra love and flavor.  Then add in some mini marshmallows, cinnamon, vanilla and a pinch of salt and stir until the marshmallows are melted.

Then stir in the cereal, and lastly the extra marshmallows. Press that all into a greased 9×9 pan. Make sure to press them in evenly, but not too densely. If you press them too much they get hard and compact instead of gooey!

THEN mix up some quick cinnamon sugar and sprinkle that all over the top just like you would coat a snickerdoodle cookie in cinnamon sugar.

The sugar on top is a little crunchy, the extra marshmallows add more gooey and the browned butter and cinnamon makes the whole situation cozy and delicious.

I am so excited about this recipe..I can’t wait to hear what you think!

    I didn’t add the sugar cinnamon sprinkle on top and since my batch was so large, I did double the cinnamon. It was delicious!!! Spraying the lined pan with oil made spreading, cooling, and cutting such a breeze! After I drop some over at my mother’s and my sister’s, I’ll definitely be making some more of these yummy, crispy, gooey treats!
