These really turned out cute. I have had my corn mold out for about a month on the counter to remind myself to try this idea of making Corn on the Cob Rice Krispies Treats. My weekends have been filled with birthday parties and soccer. My weeknights have been at track fields. Geesh! I can’t wait for summer to begin, so we can relax and try more of these fun and yummy treats.

What I love about this Rice Krispies Treats Recipe

  • this is the perfect treat for summer snacks or summer parties
  • a great snack idea for a farm party
  • easy to make
  • you can make this summer treat ahead of time

For these Corn on the Cob Rice Krispies Treats, you’ll need:

  • butter – unsalted
  • marshmallows – I used regular-sized marshmallows for this recipe, but lately, I have started using a bag of mini marshmallows. The mini marshmallows melt faster and there is less time to stir the mixture
  • rice cereal – I have used both Kellogs Rice Krispies Cereal and the generic form of the cereal. Both work just fine
  • yellow and green food coloring – The amount you use will vary because each type and brand of food coloring has different color intensity. Start out by adding just a few drops and stirring the mixture. If you would like the color to be darker, then add more food coloring

Additional Equipment:

  • Corn on the cob cake pan – Back when I first made these fun treats a cast iron pan was the only mold I could find. Now, they have handy dandy corn-on-the-cob silicone molds. I posted a link to Amazon below
  • parchment paper – this is so important. It allows the rice krispies treats to dry without sticking to your countertop. You can, however, use wax paper instead
  • butter spray oil – I like to use a butter-flavored spray oil so the taste of the oil doesn’t tamper with the flavor of the treats
  • saucepan – this is used to melt the butter and mix the marshmallows until they are melted
  • 2 mixing bowls – it is important to have 2 different bowls so you can separate the colors

How to Make Corn on the Cob Rice Krispies Treats:

(This makes 1 dozen treats)

  • Melt the butter over low to medium heat
  • Add the marshmallows and stir until melted
  • Remove from heat

  • Divide the marshmallow mixture putting about 90% in one mixing bowl and the rest in the other
  • Add yellow food coloring to the larger bowl of marshmallows and stir in
  • Add green food coloring to the smaller bowl
  • Divide the rice cereal, putting most of it into the larger bowl (about 4 cups) and the rest into the smaller bowl
  • Stir and stir and stir again
  • If the marshmallow gets hard too quickly, just pop the bowl in the microwave for 10 seconds and it will loosen up
  • *You do want it to harden just enough to conform to the mold before moving it off to cool completely

Expert Tips:

  • It is important to melt the butter over low or low to medium heat. You don’t want to burn the butter or overcook the marshmallows. Overcooked marshmallows will become tough and won’t mold very well
  • If your marshmallow mixture in the mixing bowls hardens too fast and you need to soften it, then pop it into the microwave for a few seconds and try again

Variations

Add a wooden popsicle stick into the bottom of the corn on the cob for a fun corn on the cob rice pop

Get even more creative by adding a square of yellow rice krispies treats to simulate butter and green sprinkles for chives
