Cashew Butter Salted Rice Crispy Treats Recipe

Hi Friends!

This recipe isn’t rocket science, but I was surprised at how many people fawned over these rice crispy treats that I made. I took a basic recipe, threw in some cashew butter, and finished it off with a sprinkle of sea salt.

Here’s the recipe!

  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 package mini marshmallows
  • 1/4 cup cashew butter (or any other nut butter)
  • 6 cups crispy rice cereal
  • sea salt, to taste

In a large, microwave-safe bowl heat butter and marshmallows on 3 minutes, stirring after 2 minutes. Add the cashew butter, stirring until combined. Pour in the crispy rice cereal while mixing it into the butter-marshmallow mixture.

Once everything is evenly mixed, pour it into a greased pan (or line with wax or parchment paper), and use a spatula to spread the mixture out evenly and so that it’s flat. Sprinkle sea salt over the top. Let it sit for awhile to harden a bit, or stick it in the fridge for half an hour. It’s ready when a knife can cleanly cut through the rice crispy “cake.”

Cut into individual sized pieces and serve! Or eat them yourself. I actually made these on a snow day when I literally had nothing else to eat in my home!

Have you ever modified a rice crispy recipe?

    Rice krispy treats have been my daily treat for the past month! But I put way more butter in mine. I like this idea, though, because really I can substitute some of the butter for cashew butter (or something else). Add a little protein in that snack! Thanks for sharing! (the prop idea too!)

      Rice crispy treats are so good! I’m not even a big sweets fan but lately these have been hitting the spot. I may share all my photography secrets one day – I’m totally not a pro but I can fake it :)
