Rice Krispie Treats.
The name alone brings back a rush of memories from my days as a school bus kid.
Nana was the best lunch packer this side of the equator, and I always had very balanced meals to look forward to enjoying when the lunch bell rang – an entrée, fruit, and a delicious snack, sometimes store-bought, most times homemade.
Her rice krispie treats were KILLER, and I think I’ve figured out her recipe for success.
Mr. Crumby and I are still trying to cook up a bambino of our own, but I’m already getting my “Mommy Practice” in now. These Funfetti Oreo Rice Krispie Treats absolutely fit the bill!
While they’re not going in any cute plastic lunch boxes just yet, they are being enjoyed by a child – the one in my heart!
Guys. If the rice krispie treats themselves didn’t have you sold on a quick walk back through your school days, surely the sprinkles will.
C’mon. SPRINKLES. They make everything better.
Funfetti was everything back in the day, wasn’t it? At least for me and my friends it was.
If your mom brought funfetti cupcakes to class for your birthday, you were absolutely the most popular kid for at least a solid week. Bonus points for multicolored frosting.

How to make Rice Krispie Treats
Homemade Rice Krispie Treats are super easy to make! First grease a baking pan with butter and set aside, I used a 9×13 pan.
Then combine the cereal, crushed cookies, and sprinkles in a large bowl. In a saucepan set over low heat, melt butter.
Add marshmallows and stir with a rubber spatula until marshmallows are completely melted and smooth. Pour melted marshmallow over cereal and stir until everything is completely coated and begins to clump.
Transfer mix to prepared baking pan and gently press treats down, creating an even layer. Allow treats to cool completely (35-60 minutes) before cutting into 12-16 squares.
Just knowing how school policies have changed in the last few years, and parents are no longer allowed to bring homemade treats to their child’s class parties, is absolutely soul-crushing to me.
One of the things I’ve looked forward to the most about having kids is spoiling the hell out of them with homemade baked goods! That especially included baking dozens of cookies and cupcakes for them to share with their classmates.
Now, I’ll have to bring in store-bought junk like every other parent. Booooring.
Trust me when I say that they’ll still be getting homemade goodies like these in their lunch boxes, though.
I used to make these babies in the microwave, no lie – I was a Rice Krispie Treats Cereal addict (remember that stuff?! OMG it was heavenly), so I’d pour a bowl of cereal, mix in extra marshmallows, and nuke it all for a minute or so. Smash it down and BAM…
Giant Krispie Treat.
The Oreos in Rice Krispie Treats recipe, unexpected flavor. Any type would work great – I used the Heads or Tails variety just to mix it up a little, and it’s a nice surprise to bite into a pocket of that famous cookie cream.
It took everything I had in me not to eat more than one of these while I was photographing them – they’re so buttery and gooey, and have the perfect Krispie Treat consistency!
Other Rice Krispie Treats variations you can make are peanut butter, chocolate, pumpkin, and chocolate peanut butter Rice Krispie treats!
Your kids will love them, and I promise you will, too!
