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!

  1. Speechless. Because my mouth is full of this most magnificent treat! Seriously it’s going on my any day treat list. And so easy. The browned butter with the vanilla, uh whoa. Nuff said. Too much said. Make this now!

  2. Best rice crispy treats ever! We have made this many times and we can’t get over how yummy they are.

  3. These are a hit everytime I make them for a holiday party or for work. I love snickerdoodle anything and I am so glad I found this recipe or else I would have never known Rice Krispies were possible as a snickerdoodle. It never ran across my head! Neither did it ever run across the heads of all the people eating my Rice Krispies! I don’t even make regular Rice Krispies anymore. Thank you for this recipe!

  4. I’m making these for the second time in a week this evening. My brother and boyfriend put in a special request because they were so good. I followed the recipe exactly as written and they turned out amazing. I’d highly recommend these!

    1. I like krispie treats best eaten the same day, but if you store them airtight they will be good for 2-3 days.

  5. A friend made this for a baby shower and holy smokes… The father to be got some leftovers and was also in love! Serious comfort and flavor here and the texture is spot on. Needed and now have the recipe and imma make these asap.
