Honey Nutella Rice Krispie Treats

Rice Krispie treats are on a short list of kid-friendly, three ingredient, always popular things to bring to a holiday party without resorting to a store-bought snack.  Most people will smile pleasantly when you show up with them, the host will put them out on the dessert table, and they will get eaten. However, they will be the Dasher or Prancer of desserts – definitely not the steal-the-show-and-save-Christmas Rudolph.

Arrive at your affair with these honey Nutella Rice Krispie treats and heads will turn as if Santa himself had just walked in the door.  It’s your choice whether you share the secret that honey Nutella Rice Krispie treats are just as easy to prepare as the original Rice Krispie treats – just three ingredients and a microwave. If you’d like, you can tell people that little elves worked on them all day (they’ll never have to know that the elves were your kids and that most of the working was licking the Nutella-filled spoon).

How to Make Honey Nutella Rice Krispie Treats

You’ll notice when you read the ingredients below that I didn’t actually use Nutella or Rice Krispies. Is this a case of false advertising? Not really. I just thought that if I called the recipe Honey Justin’s Nut Butter Erewhon Crispy Brown Rice Cereal Treats people wouldn’t be very excited about it; not to mention the fact that I’m not even sure how to say the word “Erewhon”.

Servings 9 servings
Calories 194kcal


  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup Nutella To make these extra fancy, you can use a more upscale chocolate hazelnut spread. I used Justin's Nut Butter Natural Chocolate Hazelnut, which blows Nutella away.
  • 4 cups Rice Krispies Again, if you are going the extra fancy route, I would recommend Erewhon Crispy Brown Rice Cereal. It's organic Rice Krispies with no corn syrup. I buy it by the case.


  • In a medium-sized microwave-safe bowl, combine honey and Nutella and microwave for 30 seconds.
  • Stir. The honey and Nutella should be hot and thoroughly combined. If not, continue to microwave for ten seconds at a time and stir until they are. (If you don't have a microwave, heat in a medium-sized saucepan on medium heat for five minutes.)
  • Mix Rice Krispies into the bowl and stir, coating all of the Krispies.
  • Spread mixture into an 8x8 glass baking dish.
  • Refrigerate for at least three hours.
  • Cut into squares and eat!

    Going grocery shopping in the morning. I already have the honey. Yum to the yum!

  2. Nutella.. hey makes Rice Krispie Treats gourmet then, right? = )

  3. Johnnasays:

    Oh, I cannot wait to make these! I’ll try it with the gluten free brown rice version of the cereal. The Nutella fiend in my house will LOVE these!

  4. These look absolutely amazing Stef! Still a simple recipe but sounds 20x better than the original.

    Also love the recommendations for the all-natural products. I’m definitely going to check out that nut butter. Thanks!

  5. Can’t wait to make these today for my grandsons who have Celiacs – Rice Krispies in any form are safe for them and they LOVE nutella!

  6. Nataliesays:

    oh my gosh, psyched to make these!!! YUM!!!!

  7. Brilliant! I must try these. I would love to try other hazelnut spreads, but I usually only see Nutella on the shelf. ;)

  8. Steph these sound so wonderful!!!! Would it be alright to substitute Agave for the honey? My diet plan allows agave but not honey. You are so darn creative!

    There is a Coupon for the Erewhon on Healthy Life Deals Blog under the “Organic Printbale Coupons”

  9. These look sooo good! And you could even call them healthy!

  10. Anonymoussays:

    I just made these for my family for Christmas Eve dessert. SOOO AMAZING. They just melt in you mouth and the honey isn’t too overpowering like I thought it might be. My dad is a rice krispie treat purist and they are his favorite dessert and even he loved them. Thanks for the recipe!

  11. Stefsays:

    Jennifer – I’m sure Agave would work! And – I saw that coupon. I am so hooked on your blog!

    Anon – I’m so excited to hear that you and your family loved them. Yay!

  12. Anonymoussays:

  13. Anonymoussays:

    cant wait 2 hav these but i need 2 no doz the C stand for cup
    and if so how big is the cups?

  14. I made these and oh my, they are so hard to stop eating. The only thing is, I didn’t grease the pan that I made them in, so it stuck to the bottom. But I’ll definitely be making these again, it’s so simple it would be wrong NOT to make them again.

  15. can i use karo syrup the clear one ? or it has to be pure honey? im about to do them please let me know asap..thnx ;)
