The simplicity of a Rice Krispie Treat with the indulgence of a churro come together in this treat to form a tasty and simple dessert that your family, friends, or co-workers will all go crazy for!

One of the all-time best, OG after school snacks has to be Rice Krispie Treats. If you’re anything like me, your mom didn’t make these from scratch, and you had to rely on the pre-packaged treats. You know the ones – the blue packaging is iconic!

My mom was constantly on a diet when I was growing up, so we didn’t keep treats in the house like that – I think she was afraid she’d eat them all before even I could.

But now, I’m a grown-up and I can keep treats in the house whenever I want – and what I want, is to always have these churro Rice Krispie Treats in my house.

They are super simple to make just like any other Rice Krispie Treat, but the extra flavor really pushes them over the edge in my opinion.

Why Should You Make These?

1. If you’ve clicked on this post, it seems like you already probably like Rice Krispie Treats, and these are awesome, so you should make them!

2. They’re super quick and easy to make.

3. They’re a little bit different from your traditional RKT, and people will be impressed with you.

4. They’re great to take to bake sales or to share with friends and family because of how easily portioned they are.

5. If you’re trying to control your portions, they’re pre-portioned for you!

Ingredients Needed


Marshmallows (full size)

Rice Krispies




Recipes Notes

Flavor: these treats combine the flavors of a classic Rice Krispie Treat with the cinnamon sugary goodness of a churro. If you really want to take them to the next level, dip them in chocolate, or extra cinnamon-sugar!

Texture: as the recipe is written, these are very firm treats. If you prefer your treats a little bit softer, add 12 ounces of marshmallows instead of 10.

Ease: these treats couldn’t be easier. Even though there is some cooking involved, this is a super easy recipe to make, and is a great option for involving the kiddos.

Tips and Tricks:

Use the recipe as a guideline. As I stated above, I prefer a firmer Rice Krispie Treat, but if you prefer them to be softer, just add more marshmallow!

Line the pan with parchment paper for a no-mess treat.

Use parchment paper or waxed paper sprayed with just a little bit of non-stick spray to press the treats into the pan so that you don’t get your hands dirty.

Wait for the treats to cool fully and use a sharp knife to get those razor sharp edges.
