Continuing on my quest to put Nutella in just about everything, I recently made these Nutella rice krispies treats. I got the idea after making my Nutella Crack Brownies because the top layer of rice cereal reminded me of rice krispies treats.

Did you like rice krispies treats growing up? Well, these are just like those classic dessert bars but they are made with Nutella and marshmallows giving them a chocolate and hazelnut flavor. The best part is you don’t have to turn on the stove to make them.

I love no-bake desserts like my Coconut Crack Bars and Cookies and Cream Bars and these Nutella rice krispies bars are a new favorite.

How to Make Nutella Rice Krispies Treats

For these rice krispies treats you only need four ingredients:

  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 1 (10-oz) bag marshmallows
  • 6 cups rice krispies cereal
  • 2/3 cup Nutella

A lot of rice krispies treats recipes instruct you to melt the butter and marshmallows in a pot on the stove, but you don’t have to do that! I just melt them together in the microwave – it’s so much easier and faster. I seem to crave rice krispies treats during the summer and I love that I don’t have to turn on the stove and heat up the kitchen.

Once the marshmallows and butter are melted you just add the cereal and Nutella and stir the cereal until it is coated evenly. It’s a good idea to work fast because the mixture will be pretty sticky.

Press the mixture into a 9 x 13-inch baking pan and leave it at room temperature until the rice krispies treats are cooled and set. Then just slice and serve.
