Who does not love rice krispie bars? Who does not love how easy they are to prepare? Who likes to mess with a recipe?

We love rice krispie bars in our house. We make them for every party because kids (and adults) love them. They are light, they are easy, and they are yummy!

A while back one of my kids asked me to add chocolate chips to them. I thought - why not? So I did. Here is how I did that:

  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 package (10oz) or 4 cups marshmallows
  • 6 1/2 cups rice krispie cereal
  • 1-2 cups chocolate chips or cut up chocolate pieces


  1. Spray 13x9 pan with cooking spray.
  2. Melt butter and marshmallows in a large sauce pan over low heat. Stir occasionally during melting.
  3. Remove pot from heat. Spray wooden spoon with cooking spray. Add cereal and chocolate alternately.
  4. Mix thoroughly.
  5. Dump cereal mixture into sprayed pan. Spray spatula with cooking spray. use greased spatula to press mixture into pan.
  6. When mixture is cool, invert onto cutting board and cut into bars.

In this recipe, my chocolate was room remperature, so the pieces melted right into the mixture and made the bars look darker. You could not see the individual chips.

If you use cold chocolate chips (right out of the freezer), they will hold their shape longer and you will see pieces of chocolate in your bars.

We have also used white chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, nuts, and cranberries in this recipe. All come out yummy!
