Snickerdoodle Rice Krispies Treats

We took the classic Rice Krispies Treats to a whole new level by adding a bit of cinnamon into the marshmallow mixture and sprinkling cinnamon sugar over the top. These no bake bars are irresistible!


▢ ¼ cup butter
▢ 8 cups mini marshmallows about 14 ounces, divided
▢ 1 teaspoon vanilla
▢ 2 teaspoons cinnamon divided
▢ 7 cups Rice Krispies cereal
▢ 3 tablespoons granulated sugar


In a large stock pot, melt the butter over medium heat.
Immediately add 6 cups of marshmallows to the pot and stir constantly until melted.
Remove the pot from the heat and add the remaining 2 cups of marshmallows, vanilla, and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon. Stir to combine.
Stir in the cereal to coat.
Pour the cereal mixture into a greased 9×13 baking dish and use a piece of greased wax paper to press lightly into the pan.
Combine the granulated sugar and remaining teaspoon of cinnamon and sprinkle evenly over the top of the cereal treats.
Let sit for 1 hour before cutting and serving.

Tips & Notes:
You can use a mixture of full sized and mini marshmallows, if you like. You’d need a 10 ounce bag of full sized marshmallows and then 2 cups of mini marshmallows for stirring in towards the end. We prefer to use mini marshmallows vs. full sized when adding them in step 3. If you only have full size, you’ll want to cut them into small pieces before adding them in step 3.
