Snickers Rice Crispy Treats - Easy, No Bake treats that are perfect for Back To School

Hi Bold Bakers!

Who out there can say no to a sweet, chewy, toasty Rice Krispies Treat? Classic Rice Krispies Treats are made of 3 simple ingredients: Rice Krispies cereal, butter and marshmallows–whoever invented them is a genius! Ever since I was young, Rice Krispies Treats have been one of my all time favorite no bake desserts!

While the classic Rice Krispies Treat is great on its own I decided to go Big and Bold and create a recipe for a Snicker’s Rice Krispies Treat! You heard me right, this variation has all the caramel, peanut and chocolate goodness we all love in Snicker’s bars.

These Snicker’s Rice Krispies Treats look amazing, and taste over the top. Yet, they only take a few simple steps to make. After I mix up a batch of classic Rice Krispies Treats, I top them with layers of melted caramel candies, salted peanuts and melted chocolate. After a quick set up in the fridge I cut these into thick squares and dig in!

  1. Deeeeeeelicious!! I’m on a Low carb and no sugar Keto diet but I couldn’t help eating these as I made them for my kids (they helped to make too as it was so easy to do). I have a 8×8 tin so I divided the recipe by half. It was perfect. Added a few more peanuts and just used the whole bag of chocolate chips (250g) even though half the recipe is 170g. Thought I might as well just finish the bag! You can’t have too much chocolate!

    1. Haha! Carmen, you are a scallywag! that is what my mum would say! Keto Feto you said!
      Now back on the wagon for you, you naughty girl. Does sound delicious though, and great that the kids got involved, so good for them.
      Carry on, be good!

    1. Hi Shira,
      I do not know! I cannot tell if you did something different to me, what was hard as rock etc. I do not have sufficient information here.
      Sorry, let me know,
      Gemma 🙂

  2. Oh my goodness!!!! Made these for a work potluck and they were gone in minutes!! Normal rice crispy treats have taken a back seat to this one!!!!!!

  3. Hi Gemma
    I just made the snickers rice Krispy bars and OMG they are divine. I couldn’t get caramel sweets so I just made my own caramel using condensed milk, brown sugar, butter and water. I cut up some into bars and stored in the fridge and stored the rest in the freezer. I have made loads of your recipes and the kids and I love watching your videos. I’m going to make your 10 min tiramisu next for my niece’s 1st birthday party, for the adults of course. Thanks again.

    1. Hi Sinead,
      Thank you, so very kind, and you made your own of this recipe, good for you.
      do try the Tiramisu, it is good, easy, and very adult when you add the little drop of brandy or rum!
      I hope you have a lovely party, what a lovely age for your little girl,
      Gemma 🙂

  4. Hi gemma, hope you’re well.
    Coukd you help me plz. Id really like to make the snickers rice krispy treats but we dont get caramel sweets where i am. Could you suggest some alternatives. I did think of making it by boiling condenced milk (dulch e de leche?) Would that work?

    Also could you suggest some alternatives for smore treats please.

    1. Hi Raziya,
      You can use Dulce De Leche, but you will need to ensure that it is thick enough. I find 3 hours of simmering does this, however it will not set up in the same way as a caramel candy. ( this is more what you would use for these, a hard candy. I do hope this is of help. Do you mean an alternative cereal for the graham type cereal? I would need to know what you have available as there are so many. Golden Grahams, cheerrios, shreddies will all be good, but there are so many, and different names in different places too, just to further confuse!
      Gemma 🙂
