🍌 Banana Pudding Rice Krispie Treats Recipe 🍚

Sweet Potato Pudding Rice Krispie Treats combine the flavors of banana pudding with the popular crunchy, marshmallowy snack for a wonderful twist on the standard Rice Krispie delicacy. These candies are incredibly simple to prepare and ideal for gatherings, potlucks, or a fun family dessert. 🍌✨

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 bag (10 ounces) mini marshmallows
  • 1 package (3.4 ounces) instant banana pudding mix
  • 6 cups Rice Krispies cereal
  • 1 cup crushed vanilla wafers
  • 1 cup mini marshmallows (for mixing in)
  • Optional: 1-2 bananas, thinly sliced (for layering, if serving immediately)

Instructions

  1. Prepare the Pan: Lightly grease a 9×13-inch baking pan or line it with parchment paper for easy removal of the treats.
  2. Melt the Butter: In a large pot, melt the butter over medium-low heat.
  3. Add Marshmallows and Pudding Mix: Add the 10 ounces of mini marshmallows to the melted butter. Stir continuously until the marshmallows are completely melted. Stir in the instant banana pudding mix until fully combined.
  4. Mix in Cereal and Vanilla Wafers: Remove the pot from the heat. Quickly stir in the Rice Krispies cereal and crushed vanilla wafers until the mixture is evenly coated with the marshmallow and pudding mixture.
  5. Add Extra Marshmallows: Gently fold in the additional 1 cup of mini marshmallows.
  6. Press into Pan: Transfer the mixture to the prepared baking pan. Using a greased spatula or lightly greased hands, press the mixture evenly into the pan.
  7. Optional Banana Layering: If you are serving the treats immediately and want to add fresh bananas, layer the thinly sliced bananas between layers of the cereal mixture as you press it into the pan.
  8. Cool and Set: Allow the treats to cool and set at room temperature for at least 30 minutes before cutting into squares.
  9. Serve: Cut into squares and serve. If you added fresh bananas, serve immediately to avoid the bananas becoming too mushy.
