Funfetti Rice Crispy Treats

Funfetti rice crispy treats are a colorful and fun twist on the classic rice krispie treats. They’re perfect for birthday parties, celebrations, or anytime you want a sweet and cheerful treat. Here’s how you can make them:


  • 6 cups crispy rice cereal
  • 4 cups mini marshmallows
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup rainbow sprinkles (plus extra for topping)
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • A pinch of salt


  1. Prepare a Pan: Grease a 9Γ—13-inch (23Γ—33 cm) baking dish or line it with parchment paper. This will prevent the treats from sticking.
  2. Melt the Butter: In a large saucepan, melt the unsalted butter over low heat.
  3. Add Marshmallows: Once the butter is melted, add the mini marshmallows to the saucepan. Stir constantly until the marshmallows are completely melted and the mixture is smooth. This should take about 3-4 minutes.
  4. Add Vanilla and Salt: Remove the saucepan from heat, and stir in the pure vanilla extract and a pinch of salt. Mix well to incorporate.
  5. Add Crispy Rice Cereal and Sprinkles: Quickly add the crispy rice cereal and rainbow sprinkles to the marshmallow mixture. Stir vigorously until the cereal is evenly coated with the marshmallow mixture. Work quickly because the mixture will start to set.
  6. Press into the Pan: Transfer the mixture into the prepared baking dish. Use a buttered spatula or your hands (you can grease them lightly with butter or cooking spray) to press the mixture firmly and evenly into the pan.
  7. Add More Sprinkles: Sprinkle additional rainbow sprinkles on top of the rice krispie treats while they are still warm, gently pressing them in to adhere.
  8. Cool and Set: Allow the treats to cool and set for about 30 minutes to 1 hour at room temperature. You can speed up the process by placing them in the refrigerator for about 15-20 minutes.
  9. Cut into Squares: Once the treats have cooled and set, use a sharp knife to cut them into squares or rectangles. You can make them as large or small as you like.
  10. Serve and Enjoy: Serve your funfetti rice crispy treats and enjoy the colorful and sweet goodness!

These treats are sure to be a hit with both kids and adults. They’re great for parties or as a nostalgic snack. Enjoy!
