Nutella Rice Crispy Treats

Take your holiday baking to the next level with Nutella Rice Crispy Treats decked out in fancy candy coating

There is some holiday magic in these bars. My Nutella-hating husband (we all have our flaws)  has even polished off half a pan. They’re pretty as bars but I plan to cut the next batch into squares for my cookie trays

Nutella Rice Crispies

Nutella Rice Crispies
Prep Time 30 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes


  • 1 bag marshmallows
  • 1/4 C butter + extra for buttering the pan and your hands
  • 6 C rice crispy cereal
  • 1/3 - 1/2 C Nutella
  • Green candy melts


  1. Butter the short sides of a 9x13 pan
  2. Cut 2 pieces of parchment paper the fits into the pan with a 2 inch over lad on each long side
  3. Place one piece into the pan
  4. Melt the butter in a large pot
  5. Add in the marshmallows and cook over med-low heat, stirring constantly (you can take a few mini breaks to extract your child from the catnip drawer) until the marshmallows are completely melted and you don't have any lumps
  6. Stir in the cereal
  7. Transfer roughly 1/2 of the cereal into the parchment lined pan and using generously buttered hands press it out to cover the bottom of the pan. Remove the cereal using the parchment paper and set it aside (take care not to break it in half)
  8. Place the other sheet into the pan and add the rest of the cereal. Press it out to evenly cover the bottom of the pan
  9. Spread the Nutella over the cereal in the pan (Truth time: I'm not 100% sure on how much I used, I started out with a 1/4 cup but that wasn't enough and the baby was screaming so I just started scooping straight from the jar)
  10. Carefully flip the cereal bar you made earlier onto the Nutella and use your hand to press the two layers together
  11. Let the treats sit until completely cool and hardened
  12. Use a sharp knife to cut the cereal into 1 x 2 inch bars
  13. Lay the bars on a sheet of parchment and melt the candy in a small bowl in the microwave
  14. Use a fork to drizzle/violently shake the melted candy over the bars
  15. Let them sit until hardened and then serve
