Apple Cinnamon Rice Krispie Treats

Over the weekend, I needed a quick dessert.  I had all the ingredients to make rice krispie treats, but desired to make something with a fall flavor. 

These went together in a pinch and we enjoyed them a great deal.  That’s the polite way of saying half the pan was gone within an hour! 

Try them … they are a great and simple fall recipe. 

Apple Cinnamon Rice Krispie Treats


  • 3 T butter
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp. ginger
  • 1 bag mini marshmallows
  • 6 C brown rice krispies
  • 1/2 C dried apples, finely chopped

Prepare a 9x13 glass baking dish by spraying it with cooking spray. 

Begin by melting the 3 T butter in a large sauce pan.

Stir in the spices.  Feel free to add more/less to taste. 

Add in the marshmallows, reduce heat to med-low and stir until they are melted. 

Stir in the dried apple pieces. 

Carefully, and quickly, spread the rice krispie marshmallow goodness into the greased 9x13 baking dish.  If needed, spray your spatula with olive oil spray to help wrangle those sticky krispies into their place. 

Allow the rice krispie treats to cool to room temperature before diving in.

If you don’t devour them immediately, cover and store on the counter for about a week. 

But, they won’t last that long!

  1. Mmmmm these look so good!!! A little kitchen tip Nathan taught me not long ago to wrangle the krispies in place is to wet your hands lightly with water, and then press them down. Nothing sticks! It's amazing. :)

  2. love this twist with the apples & cinnamon! sounds fabulous!

  4. I love the unique twist on an old standby! Perfect for fall!

  5. Pretty original and they sound good!

  6. I love your recipe! Would you come over to CAST PARTY WEDNESDAY at Lady Behind The Curtain and share your recipe with us tomorrow?
    I hope to see you there!

  7. Another trick for patting them down is to use parchment paper. Works like a charm.

    I just made these with cheerios and raisins rather than apples for a friend. And I dusted the top with cinnamon powdered sugar. Thanks for the idea.


Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear from you; especially how you're finding JOY in your kitchen.
