Easy Dessert: Transform Mini Rice Krispies Treats into Petits-Fours

As anyone who’s read my book knows, being fabulous is not about spending a lot of time and money on something, it’s about making it LOOK like you spent a lot of time and money on something. So I declare this spin on Rice Krispies Treats the most fabulous dessert ever: Take the easiest dessert known to man, dip it in chocolate, add sprinkles and voila! Gorgeous little treats as chic as petits-fours—and just as delicious—for a fraction of the cost or effort. Serve these at the next party or baby shower you host!


Rice Krispies Treats Petits-Fours


  • 3 tsp butter
  • 1 package (10 oz) marshmallows
  • 6 c puffed rice cereal (like Rice Krispies)
  • 1 c chocolate chips
  • sprinkles and/or coconut flakes


  • In large saucepan, melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted; remove from heat.
  • Add rice cereal; stir until well coated.
  • Use a spatula to spoon into a 13x9-inch pan lined with parchment paper, then press with parchment paper to make the surface even; let cool. Cut into roughly 1-1/2 square pieces.
  • Over low heat in a double-boiler or in a microwave, melt the chocolate.
  • Dip the treats into the chocolate, using a spoon to even out the surface. Cool a few minutes.
  • Pour sprinkles into a small bowl. Dip the chocolate end into the sprinkles to coat. Let cool completely before serving.

#fbf to 1994 (ish) with my buds, @richardwiese and @wendirogerstv Bought that sport coat on sale for about 20 bucks because that’s all I had in the bank. Was 10% wool and 90% “other.” Got caught in the rain with it and smelled like wet dog ass all night.

Nine years ago, I made a vow to live my life based on three guiding principles: Love, Awe and Gratitude. Today, instead of feeling sad, angry or anxious about The Chew’s cancellation, I will look through the lens of Gratitude and thank: My cohosts, @chefsymon and @carlaphall, for being two of the greatest people I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing. The crew and staff of The Chew for being so dedicated, hardworking and collaborative. Our viewers for allowing us into your homes each day to share a laugh and a recipe — and a cocktail. It’s been a fun run and I am so freakin’ lucky to have been a part of it. Much love, CK ❤️
