Crispy Rice Candy Corn Treats

Last minute dessert.

I know, I know Thanksgiving is tomorrow and you are thinking you don't have time to come up with another dessert recipe. This is where you are wrong. You can make this recipe from start to finish in 10 minutes! Not only is it quick and easy, but rice crispy treats are a universal crowd pleaser. If you bought Candy Corn at Halloween, changes are you still have some leftover. If you don't have any then you still have time to run to the store and get some (but really any favorite candy will work). now start your timers and get baking!

Crispy Rice Candy Corn Treats
recipe adapted from Paula Deen

4 tablespoons butter
1 (10 ounce) bag marshmallows
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon Vanilla
6 cups Crispy Rice Cereal (preferred brand: Kellogg’s Rice Krispies)
1 cup candy corns

Spray a 13x9 glass baking dish and rubber spatula with non stick spray.

In a medium sized sauce pan over low heat, add butter to melt. Once melted add marshmallows, salt, and vanilla. Stir continuously until the marshmallows have reached a smooth consistency. Remove from heat and fold in the cereal and candy corns until completely coated.

Add the mixture to the greased baking dish and smooth out evenly. Allow to cool before cutting into squares.


  1. I made these they were a big hit.

  2. Love! I have never done rice crispy treats before but this was a fun twist to it

  3. These look great! My hubby and grandson love candy corn; I am thinking of making some for me with M&Ms. I've never gotten creative with Rice Krispie treats, but maybe it's time! :-)
