Rice Krispies Treats-No Butter!

Mar 14, 2023 | Recipe, Dessert

Enjoy this chewy, sweet treat with a healthy twist, extra virgin olive oil in place of butter! Dress these up with special toppings such as sprinkles or frosting. Adding chocolate chips, toffee bits

or toasted nuts further makes them hard to resist. 



Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or lightly grease it with the delicate olive oil and set aside until later.

In a large bowl, add the puffed rice cereal and set aside while you melt the marshmallows. Add any mix-ins like sprinkles or mini chocolate chips to the bowl of cereal.

In a large saucepan, add the More Than Olives Extra Virgin Olive Oil along with the marshmallows. Stir to coat the marshmallows. Heat on low, stirring continuously until they are melted. If you overcook the marshmallows, they will get hard.

Add the melted mixture to the puffed rice cereal or other small cereal of your choice. Gently fold together. Don’t over mix as this will break down the light puffy nature of the cereal.

Turn the combined mixture onto the greased or parchment paper lined cookie sheet. Don’t be shy, using your hands with some olive rubbed on them is easiest. Gently press out the mixture to create a rectangle at the height you desire.

Give the Krispies a very light sprinkle of flake salt. If you are adding toppings, now is the time to sprinkle them on, while the mixture is a bit sticky.

Store in refrigerator until it is cooled and hardened. Once cooled, cut into individual servings with an oiled cookie cutter or sharp knife. Store them in an airtight container. Enjoy!

More Than Olives

At More Than Olives we thoughtfully select specialty foods that will enhance your kitchen culinary experiences. We continue to look for new products and we welcome you to visit our Folsom store for tasting experiences.

“This is a great little place. The staff is super friendly and helpful. We were visiting from GA and couldn’t take the large bottles of oil or vinegar back with us on the plane so they helped us pick out our favorites and shipped them to us. It all arrived in perfect condition. Everything is so good but our favorite is the Sex on the Beach balsamic vinegar! If you’re in Folsom you have to go! ❤️”
Jennifer Pearson

“The olive oils and vinegars are so tasty. I love how easy it is to refill the bottles. I am looking forward to salads, marinades and more this summer as fresh fruits and vegetable become available. Love the staff and love the quality of the products.”
Tonia Nichols
