Recipe: Rice Krispie Treat for One!

Microwave Rice Krispie Treat for One

Hello Tatertots and Jello friends! It’s Melissa from No. 2 Pencil and I’m here again to share a super fun recipe idea. A microwave Rice Krispie Treat for One. It’s made just like the classic, but you can whip this up in even less time. This recipe is perfect for kids and tweens. They get to make a treat using the microwave, just for themselves. No need to turn on the stove or oven, and they can practice measuring and mixing.

Over at No. 2 pencil, I love sharing recipes for single serving desserts, like my Chocolate Chip Cookie in a Cup and my Microwave Brownie in a Cup. They are so fun to whip together, and I love creating the recipes.

Let me show you how quick and easy this Rice Krispie Treat for One comes together:

Start by melting 1/2 a tablespoon of butter in a microwave safe bowl. Then add four large marshmallows and microwave again for about twenty more seconds. The marshmallows will start puffing up, so keep an eye on them so they don’t come over the edge of the bowl.

Once you remove the bowl from the microwave, they will deflate again.

You can eat it warm straight from the bowl, or spoon into another container or cup. Once cool, you can pop it out and enjoy.

  1. Made this over the weekend and melted a handful of caramels with a splash of milk. My son was helping unwrap the caramels so I don’t really remember how many we used, 8 or 10? After pouring the caramel sauce on top we sprinkled some Flur de Sel and put it in the fridge. SO YUMMY!! And just enough! THANKS!

  2. Delicious! I only had mini marshmallows and so I googled it and turns out 1 large marshmallow = 13 mini marshmallows. :)

  3. Oh, and I featured them in my Lovely Links post today – I hope you’ll come by for a visit! http://richerfullerbe.blogspot.com/2013/05/lovely-links.html

  4. This is so smart! I can’t believe I’ve never thought of this. I cannot wait to show my brothers how to do this! I am adding #2 pencil to my reading list for sure. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

  5. A new dessert in a cup! Thank you! I’m always looking for new ways to satisfy my sweet tooth.

  6. Melissa, you are just simply the BEST!!! I love all your Yummy creations, especially your GENIUS single serving ideas :)

    Thank you! Just an fyi, I followed your link to the No. 2 Pencil blog. The photo shows up, but the recipe does not…not in a search or on her single serving page. I wanted to pin it, and I wanted to use the original source, but I’ll pin yours instead. Looks yummy!

  8. This is both dangerous and safe at the same time. Dangerous, because now I can have a rice crispy treat whenever I want and safe, because it will save me from making (and then eating) an entire batch of rice crispy treats. Not sure which route this will go…

  9. Pretty much a nightly snack of mine… somehow having it written out as a recipe above makes me feel much more legit. Thanks for that!! :)

  10. I totally just plugged this in to the Weight Watchers recipe builder, and it’s 4 points+ for the entire serving! Will definitely be trying this as an occasional snack. Thanks for sharing this!!!

    • Oops! Make that 6 points+. Missed the part about using large marshmallows. Still a good treat now and then.

  11. These look amazing! I’ll have to start keeping a supply of marshmallows and rice crispies around!

  12. Thanks so much for having me Jen! I just love visiting TT&J!!!!
