Homemade Rice Krispie Treats That Actually Taste Like Original Rice Krispie Treats

Homemade Rice Krispie Treats That Actually Taste Like Original Rice Krispie Treats I’ve always loved the Original Rice Krispie Treat Bars. They taste amazing—but quite different from homemade rice krispie treats. Although I love both homemade and blue bar treats, I’ve never figured out why the blue-wrapped treats tasted so different from the homemade recipes I would make…until recently.

By luck, I decided to make the standard Rice Krispie treat recipe using Kellogg’s Frosted Rice Krispie cereal. I was amazed at the difference. The Frosted Rice Krispies made the recipe taste very similar to the bars in the blue package. This was the ticket! I used Frosted Rice Krispie Treats and ended up with treats that tasted just like the blue bars.

  1. No way! These treats look so dense and thick, just like the blue packaged ones! I’ll have to try them out!! Thanks!

  2. These look ridiculously good, I’ll definitely be trying them!

  3. Dawn says:

    It looks like the sugar goes from 4g to 12g when you switch from regular rice krispies to the Frosted ones. No wonder they taste so different!

    I actually prefer the regular homemade rice krispie bars . . . or ones with peanut butter added!

    Yummy!

  4. You’re going to laugh, but I never even knew there was a frosted version! When we buy them to make rice krispie treats, we buy the plain kind. My kids always liked them when they were little. I’m sure they would have liked these too. 🙂 Once we made a castle out of them for a birthday cake…they make great building blocks! I might have to do this for my niece and nephews when they visit this summer…the kids all loved it!
