I have several boxes of Rice Krispies  in my stockpile so I pulled one out and decided to make rice krispies treats.  I try not to make them too often because I could sit down and eat the whole thing.  Seriously….I could cut it into two giant pieces and say I only ate two bars.  It’s that bad. 

 I decided to make banana pudding treats since I had this lovely box of banana pudding just sitting in my pantry.   I used a whole box of pudding in my rice krispies but if you like a milder taste, you could just use ½ box.  If you don’t have pudding on hand but have some banana flavoring, you could use that instead.  Just add it to the marshmallows after they have melted.  It still taste like banana but you lose that pudding taste. 

  • 6 cup Rice Krispies
  • 1/4 cup of butter or margarine
  • 10 oz bag mini marshmallows
  • 1 small box of banana cream instant pudding mix

  1. Use parchment paper or butter to prepare an 8 inch square dish.  
  2. Place butter and marshmallows in a large bowl and microwave for 30 seconds.  
  3. Stir and return to microwave at 30 second intervals until melted *  
  4. Add  banana pudding and stir until completely combined.  Fold in cereal.  
  5. Pour into your prepared dish.  I use a piece of parchment paper to press my treats into the pan (no sticky butter fingers!) but go ahead and use your butter fingers if you don’t have parchment paper.  
  6. Next take a spoon and scrap all of the marshmallows and cereal that stuck to the bottom of the bowl and eat immediately!

* My microwave takes 1 ½ minutes to melt the marshmallows perfectly.
