Milky Way Rice Krispies

In case you need a refresh, the “Milky Way” bar is a chocolate bar made of chocolate-malt nougat topped with caramel and covered with milk chocolate and has been around since 1923 introduced by Mars, Inc.  ‘Like Wow’, right?   

I can’t begin to tell you how many of these candy bars I’ve eaten throughout my life, but it’s a pretty high number!  Hey!!  I’m a confessed ‘Chocoholic’…so of course I’m addicted to everything that has chocolate involved.

  • Take a knife and slide tip around edges of rice krispies to loosen from sides of pan and cut.. Seal to keep fresh.


I use less rice krispies in my recipe, than most of the recipes out there. I like them more marshmallowy, makes them more delicious. If you prefer to add another 1/2 cup or cup of rice krispies, it's your call. 🙂 I wouldn't steer you wrong.
Next time, I'm adding the Caramel Drizzle too! 🙂 Enjoy!!

  1.   It adds a depth of flavor to the rice krispie treats and definitely elevates them to another level. Stir in RICE KRISPIES cereal. Remove from heat and add remaining 2 cups of marshmallows and rice krispies ceral.

  2. mmmm that chocolate drizzle! i won’t turn down a storebought rice krispie treat, but the homemade ones taste so much better (like basically everything in life). there’s something about the storebought ones that taste really checmically to me.

  3. Oh my word, can we just come and live in your kitchen?! These look AMAZING. And I love that you put less Rice Krispies in to make them more marshmallowy! Plus the Milky Way, I’m just drooling over here 😀

  4. Yum! These look so heavenly! It’s a good thing I don’t have any now because I would have to eat a couple bars for breakfast! Thanks for another great recipe, Kim! ☺
