43 Even Better Takes On The Rice Krispies Treat

The classic Rice Kripsies Treats recipe found on the back of the cereal's big, blue box calls for very few ingredients. All it takes is 6 cups of the crisped rice, some butter and marshmallows and there you have it: a gooey, irresistible dessert.

While we will forever appreciate the simplicity of the sweet in its unaltered form, we can't help but to sometimes see the naked treat as a blank canvas for creativity. Anything is possible: cake batter, Nutella and bananas fosters krispies are all for the making. These recipes will help to dress up this adored childhood dessert into something a bit more adult.
