Tips and Variations

Consider this recipe a starting point. There are many ways to add all your favorite things to these cookies, or make them your own.

Since there’s no baking involved, swapping out ingredients is super easy. Here are just a few suggestions for making these cookies even better.

1. Change up your cereal. Rice Krispies come in the name of cookies, but any cereal will do! For a variety of flavors and textures, try different types of grains, such as corn flakes, granola, or even cinnamon toast crackers.

2. Eat sweets and nuts like crazy. Swapping out peanuts for other salty nuts and candies is a great way to take the flavors up a notch and make them your own.

Try salted cashews, pecans, pistachios, or any other nut you like. You can even add bite-sized candies like M&M’s or Reese’s Pieces.

3. Always melt your chocolate slowly. White chocolate is known for snapping in seconds. White chocolate is known to absorb better than milk chocolate, so be careful.

To make sure this doesn’t happen, melt the chocolate for 15-30 seconds, then stir. When those chocolate chips melt, resist the urge to pop them back in the microwave.

4. try different types of chocolate。 White chocolate makes these cookies very sweet and delicious, but you can use other types of chocolate. Choose dark, semisweet, or milk chocolate chips for a richer chocolate flavor.

5. Love marshmallows? Add more! The beauty of this recipe is that it is not an exact science of baking. You can add more to the mix if you like marshmallows. The same goes for peanuts and grains.

How to Store Rice Krispie Cookies

Rice Krispie cookies will keep for about a week if stored in an airtight container at room temperature and longer in the refrigerator.

After scooping them onto the wax paper, it’s important to let them cool completely.

If you don’t, they will get soggy when you put them in the storage container. You don’t want that.

These cookies won’t go bad after a week, but they won’t be as fresh, crunchy, and delicious.

If you need to store them longer, put them in an airtight bag and put them in the refrigerator.

When you’re ready to eat, let them thaw slowly on the kitchen counter or in the refrigerator.

However, these cookies are so delightful and addictive that finding the right storage option won’t be a problem.

In my house, they only last a few days before disappearing!
