Individual Rice Krispie Treat (Microwave)

"This is a classic treat, but it is usually made in a big batch. I came up with this individual version one day when I was scouring the pantry for something sweet. I guess you can pat it into a square if you REALLY want to be authentic, but that would probably be quite messy, time-consuming, and it's easier to just eat it right out of the bowl."

Ready In:


  • 1 cup Rice Krispies (generic works fine)
  • 12 cup mini marshmallows
  • 34 teaspoon butter (I used buttery spread made with yogurt-Brummel & Brown's)


  • Put the marshmallows and the butter in a medium bowl, and microwave it for about 20 seconds on HIGH. The marshmallows will puff a lot.
  • Take the bowl out of the microwave, and stir in the cereal, making sure it is all coated in marshmallow.
  • Enjoy!

    It was delicious. Had to add a little more butter and marshmallows.

    This was great! Perfect for my RKT craving. I added a few more marshmallows/butter just because I like it gooey ?. But really, its great to have this quick single serving recipe, especially during the summer when both of my boys are home, they even like to help momma!

    Awesome!! I used I Can't Believe It's Not Butter (Light) spread. I bought Rice Krispies for another recipe and since I hardly ever eat cereal for breakfast I was trying to think of other ways to use it up. I didn't want to make a full 13x9 pan of Krispie treats since I know I'd eat them all within a few days but if I make these I can more easily spread that out over a few weeks (or months!) Thanks Greeny! :)

    This was made, sampled, photographed and reviewed by the selfless, sacrificing DH because the dummy who tagged it is diabetic and WW and can't touch stuff like this. It made a very generous single serving or about four standard squares. The flavor was just what you remember and love. The texture was a bit loose but might have set up if allowed time to cool completely. Easy, fun, classic, and tasty! Made for PAC.
