How Do You Make Nutella Rice Krispie Treats?

Ah, the classic Rice Krispie Treat: simple, fast and freakin’ delicious. Also, one of my favorite treats from my childhood. My idea was to take the classic recipe we all know and love and step it up a notch. This rice krispie treat variation is still very simple, even more delicious and perfect for both kids and adults.

Easy Rice Krispie Treats with Nutella Recipe Step By Step

  1. Melt the marshmallows and butter together in a small pan over medium heat until the marshmallows are completely liquefied.
  2. In a large bowl stir together the melted marshmallows and Rice Krispie Cereal until combined.
  3. Spray your pan with cooking spray and sprinkle some chocolate chips in the bottom of the pan. These will stick to the Nutella Rice Krispie Treats once they are done.
  4. Add the Rice Krispie mixture in the pan and press down with your hands until even. Now for the good stuff.
  5. In a sauce pan (or the pan you just used for the marshmallows) add the Nutella and remaining chocolate chips and warm until melted and smooth.
  6. Pour this nutella rice krispie treat mixture over the rice krispie treats and use a spoon to smooth it evenly over the top.
  7. Finally, place the pan in the fridge for 30 minutes or until the chocolate is set. Once the chocolate is set, slice and serve! Also, if you are feeling fancy, you can drizzle melted chocolate over the tops of the finished Rice Krispie Treats as well!

Rice Krispie Treats with Nutella Recipe Tips

Pan Size

For this rice krispie treats with nutella recipe you can use a 9×9 or Loaf pan. I used a Loaf pan because I wanted the treats to be really thick. If you want the more classic square shape, go with a 9×9 sized pan.

Sticky Fingers

To avoid your hands from getting sticky when pressing the chocolate rice krispies into the pan, spray your hands with cooking spray!

Rice Krispie Treats Variations 

Instead of pouring the Nutella/chocolate mix over the rice krispie treats in the pan, you could mix it all together THEN press the rice krispie treats into the pan. This will help you avoid the chill time for the chocolate to set. It also means that your treats won’t be very pretty to look at. When doing the rice krispie treats this way they taste the same, but they aren’t winning any beauty pageants.

Storing Leftover Rice Krispie Treats with Nutella

I love that these Nutella Rice Krispie treats stay fresh for several days after making them. For the longest shelf life, store rice krispie treats in an airtight container at room temperature for maximum shelf life, about 5 days. Enjoy at room temperature when ready to enjoy. Also, I do not recommend freezing this recipe, because the rice krispie treats do no thaw well once they are frozen.
