Nutella Rice Krispie Treats

nutella-krispies-1

Aside from my family, there are two things in this world that I honestly don’t think I could live without.  At the very least, my quality of life would surely suffer without them.  They are Nutella and Rice Krispie treats.  Seriously.  I have to keep the Nutella jar safely hidden away in my pantry where I can’t see it, or else it would quickly disappear, spoonful by spoonful.  And, don’t even get me started on the Rice Krispie treats!  I always say that I make them for the kids, but the sad truth is I make them for ME, ME, ME!  In fact, I rarely dare to even make them anymore, because if there’s a tray of them in the house, I cannot rest until I have consumed Every. Single. One.  If there was a twelve step program for Rice Krispie treats, I’d be in it.  Sigh…

So, imagine the allure of a Rice Krispie treat made with mounds of Nutella swirled in.  It’s almost too much to contemplate!   I can’t believe I never thought of it before!  I actually didn’t think of it this time.  I got the idea from an episode of Top Chef Just Desserts, which is pretty much the only thing I’ve gotten from that show so far, except a throbbing headache from watching all of the drama.  (Seth, I’m talking about you!)

Now, I’m pretty sure that most of you already know how to make Rice Krispie treats.  But I’m going to explain it anyway, because I need some words to go along with all of these pictures. 

The first thing you need to do is melt some butter in a big pot.  Try to use a nonstick pot if you can.  You’ll thank me later.

When the butter is melted, add a bunch of marshmallows and melt them too.  I prefer mini marshmallows for this.  I think they melt faster.  When I make Rice Krispie treats, I don’t want to wait any longer than I have to.

After your marshmallows are all melted, take the pot off of the stove and add in the Nutella.  Make sure that you get it all mixed together really well.

Next, add the Rice Krispies…

…And stir, stir, stir.  You will definitely need to use a little elbow grease for this.

Be still my heart!

Press the mixture into a shallow pan and let it cool.

When it has cooled, cut it into squares and just try to keep your hands off them. They are sticky, gooey, creamy chewy perfection!  I guarantee you won’t be able to eat just one.  If you can eat just one, let me know.  I want to know your secret.

    Seriously Seth! Dial back the tears buddy…!!!

    We LOVE this idea! We don’t even try and hide the Nutella…it’s futile…we know it’s there…we must have it. We need to stop buying it! But first we need to buy some more to make these…

    Susan you’ve taken rice crispie squares to a whole new level. Nutella!

    You have just made this impossible to resist. I have a thing about Rice Krispie treats too. I make mine with 2 bags of creamy toffees melted with the butter and marshmallows……fudgy goodness!!!

    I am baffled by the amount of drama that exists on Top Chef: Desserts. It’s crazy!

    Well, at least these glorious treats came out of it. I can’t keep nutella around at all…but maybe if I have an EXCUSE to do something with it besides go at it with a spoon…maybe then it will be allowed…

    omg SETH!! lol. I happened to catch my first episode of this season and it was the candy one of him crying about his momma!

    I’ve never tried Nutella, maybe I’m missing something?

    another great was to use Nutella!

    I love this take on rice krispy treats! Thanks for the mini marshmallow tip too – I used the big ones last time and it posed some challenges. :-)

    Darn you, I forgot I had Nutella in the cupboard until you just reminded me. I have to go smear some on some white bread. Next time I make rice crispy treats, you can be sure there will be some Nutella swirled in!
    See ya at Blogher! Hopefully well both be on time for breakfast this year! ;)

    possbily the most amazing way to make rice krispie treats to date! Susan, you’ve gone and made me crave something seriously addicting… and it’s only breakfast time! :)

  17. On October 05, 2010 at 9:12am, Katie said...

    Wow do they look good – I can almost taste them and they look wonderfully chewy

  18. On October 05, 2010 at 9:59am, Eliana said...

    Can you believe I have never made rice krispie treats before? I’m ashamed to admit it. I think this is a sign that I have to get with the program because there is nothing to not like about these beauties.

    I love this Nutella Rice Krispies idea! . . . And, just like you, I have also claimed that I made Rice Krispies Treats for my kids. HA, they were lucky to get any of them. LOL BUT this addition sounds heavenly. Guess what I’ll be making tonight? Guess I’ll start that diet next week! XOX

    LOVE Nutella, love Top Chef, looking forward to loving Seth’s impending sendoff. Please pack the tool and let him go!

  23. On October 06, 2010 at 7:46pm, Cindy said...

    I made these exactly as the recipe was written and was very disappointed. As soon as the nutella was added, the marshmallow mixture siezed right up. I could barely get 3 cups of the rice krispies mixed in. I would not make this again.

  24. On October 08, 2010 at 2:14am, Nina said...

    Wow! I love this recipe! I will definitly want to try this recipe again. I’m 10 yrs old but I love cooking with my mum. I made a three-quarter batch and it was more than enough! I loved the chewy flavour and it was an easy recipe for me to do! Thankyou!

    Can you believe I haven’t ever eaten a RKT?? THese look oh soo good!!!

    ha i’m watching that episode of top chef desserts right now! i’m not a rice krispie treat fan but i looooove nutella so i’m thinking i’m going to have to try this!

  27. On October 08, 2010 at 11:23pm, Eel said...

    Oh my word! Thank you for this recipe, I cannot wait to try it over at SpiceOpolis. I’ll credit you, and Top Chef of course. I will need AA for rice krispies! I love to wrap each one individually, I may be obsessed! hehe

    As if Rice Krispy Treats were not enough danger to my waistline, especially the way Martha Stewart makes them with other sweetened cereals like Captain Crunch and Fruit Loops. We have made them with peanut butter cereals, as well as with seasonal things like Candy Corn for Halloween treats. But now you go and suggest something as absolutely yummy nutella in them and there is no way I can resist making them! That is just going to be to good to pass…waist line enlarging be damned.

  29. On October 14, 2010 at 9:54pm, jacquie said...

    Just made them and….. the marshmallow mixture did firm up rather quickly but I sort of mixed the krispies in with quick action and pressed into the pan. Yummy! (Maybe warmer Nutella would make it easier to mix in?)

  30. On October 15, 2010 at 6:14am, Jenny said...

    I did notice that the bars are pretty chewy… but the flavor reminds me a tootsie roll… which makes the chewyness ok! A fantastic idea and I am sad that I’ve missed 30+ years of making them!

    I do love this recipe. I hope you do not mind I linked it on my blog. Clarice

    zomg!!!

    I just made brown butter rice krispies.. and now I want to make these. I love nutella in a way that probably isn’t entirely healthy

  33. On November 03, 2010 at 4:51pm, Jaime said...

    Another yummy rice krispie option, add peanut butter. Usually add about 1/3-1/2 cup just as the marshmallows are finishing up melting and before adding the rice krispies. I always have rave reviews.

  34. On November 14, 2010 at 5:58am, Joey said...

    I’ve been eyeing this recipe since forever, and I just made them today! My nutella rice krispies weren’t as brown as yours but they tasted awesome!

  35. On January 02, 2011 at 9:09am, Jana said...

    What an awesome idea! Can’t wait to try this! I LOVE Nutella too!

  36. On January 30, 2011 at 2:32pm, mary jane said...

    try adding dried tart cherries or dried cranberries to your Nutella Rice Krispie treats, takes them to a whole new level.

  37. On April 10, 2011 at 12:06am, Linda said...

    Great idea…love, love, love both of these things. Can’t wait to try it. I first had Nutella (served at breakfast everyday) when I went to Germany and was thrilled to find it when I got home. One of my favorite things to do is toast a bagel, put cream cheese on it and then a layer of Nutella…YUMMY!

  38. On July 21, 2011 at 2:27am, Hana said...

    Thanks for sharing this delicious recipe! I’ve been making original rice krispies treats for a long time now and wished that someone would have told me earlier to use a nonstick pot, melt mini marshmallows, and use wax paper. Learned it the hard way. I enjoyed your detailed descriptions and photos. This recipe is a big hit!

  39. On September 15, 2011 at 4:39pm, Teres said...

    Just made these! We are big Nutella fans in our house…the smell alone is intoxicating!! So delicious!! Thanks for the recipe!

    I made these last night and they were absolutely amazing! Tasted heavenly… Sadly they exist no more… It was pure genius to combine these.
