{VIDEO} Rice Krispies Treat Donuts

A super fun twist on a classic treat. Rice Krispies Treats made to look like real Donuts!

This easy, but totally fun dessert, that combines everyone's faves, into a fun little festive treat idea. The soft chocolatey marshmallow treat is so perfect with the sweet candy glaze on top. I would choose these over a deep fried donut any day.

I mean who isn't going to obsess over these chocolatey, marshmallow-ey rice krispies treats, disguised as little donuts, topped with french vanilla candy glaze and sprinkles?!

These start with a rice cereal treat donut and then we top it in a sweet candy glaze and sprinkles. The best part is, you can totally customize these and and use fruity cereal or regular rice krispies for a classic version and make different shaped donuts.

Get creative and come up with different flavors and colors, then, let everyone add their own toppings for a really fun, custom treat. How cute did these turn out? They look just like a real donut!

Rice Krispies Treat Donuts

Yield: 10 (3-inch) donuts


Rice Krispies Treat Donuts:
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter 
  • 1 (10 oz.) packages mini marshmallows
  • 5 cups cocoa flavored crispy rice cereal (about 1/2 of a 15oz. box) 

  • 6oz (1 cup) candy melts or chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons International Delight french vanilla creamer
  • rainbow sprinkles for garnish


Crispy Donuts:
Melt butter in a saucepan. Stir in marshmallows over low heat, until fully melted (Or do this in the microwave). Turn off heat and pour over cereal in a large bowl, mixing until cereal is well coated. Allow to cool slightly for a few minutes, until no longer hot to the touch.

Use greased hands to press a handful of the cooled mixture into a circle cookie cutter. Press into a donut shape and use your finger to create a hole in the middle. Place on wax paper lined baking sheet to cool completely.

Melt candy melts/or chocolate chips and creamer in a shallow bowl, stirring until smooth. Dip each completely cooled "donut" in the glaze and top with sprinkles. If glaze starts to thicken you can microwave it for a few seconds to thin it out again.

Note: Store no more than two days at room temperature in airtight container. To freeze, place in layers separated by wax paper in airtight container. Freeze for up to 6 weeks. Let stand at room temperature for 15 minutes before serving.
