It really should come to no surprise that I love rice krispies treats. Love is an understatement…I can make them in my sleep! I could also eat the whole pan so I usually make a small batch and then only when the kids are around. I wasn’t sure how my family would like these cranberry and white chocolate rice krispies treats, but they devoured the pan of treats in about 15 minutes. Yep, it’s safe to say that my family loves rice krispies treats too!
The tartness of the cranberries and the sweetness of the white chocolate go perfectly together, plus they are a little chewy and a little crunchy. All the different tastes and textures make these treats extra scrumptious.
The dried cranberries I used were lightly sweetened, but if I was making these just for adults I would have used unsweetened, dried cranberries for even more tartness.
I also used gluten free rice krispies and vegan butter/marshmallows/white chocolate chips…hey…I had to make sure I could eat them too. So even with substitutions they worked beautifully and were delicious!
Join me on my quest as I discover the most delicious rice krispies treat recipe on the planet!

instead of marshmallows, would marshmallow fluff be okay because that is all i can find without ordering it that is vegetarian?

Amelia…not sure. I’ve never made RK treats with marshmallow fluff. If you have before then it would work. My guess is that it would and just not take long on the stovetop…just enough to heat it up so you can mix everything together. Let me know how it works if you try it.
Whooaa you remind me of my childhood, here in Indonesia we called it “borondong” or something, i forgot. I think i’m gonna try this recipe. Nice to found your blog, i came here by Recipe Girl recommendation. Best Regards
