Caramel Cereal Treats

Who doesn’t love a good, ooey-gooey Rice Krispie treat?  Did you know you can really ramp up the flavor with some pudding mix?  I didn’t until recently, and decided to give it a go with a box of caramel-flavored Jell-O pudding mix that I happened to have on hand.  With some toffee bits and melted white chocolate, basic treats turned out to be pretty decadent!  — Sherry Hang


  • 4 tbs. butter
  • 1 10-oz. package marshmallows
  • 6 cups Kellogg’s Rice Krispies cereal
  • 1 box Jell-O instant pudding mix, caramel
  • 1/2 cup toffee bits
  • 8 oz. white chocolate


Measure 6 cups Rice Krispies cereal into large bowl and set aside.  Melt butter in large saucepan.  Once melted, add marshmallows and pudding mix (it will gunk up at first, but don’t panic, once the marshmallows start melting, it will smooth itself out).  Remove saucepan from heat.  Dump cereal into melted mixture and stir until thoroughly coated.  Press into a greased 9×13 pan and let cool.  Once cool, drizzle melted white chocolate and sprinkle toffee bits over treats.  Enjoy!
