The Best Rice Krispies Treats Recipe

A quick search on the Internet for “best Rice Krispies Treat recipe” will bring up many claiming to be “the best.” But is one really better than another? Possibly, but they all start out with butter, marshmallows, and Rice Krispies cereal.

We turned to the Rice Krispie Treats experts, Kellogg’s, for the “official” recipe for making these fantastic treats at home:

Ingredients:

  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 package (10 oz., about 40) JET-PUFFED Marshmallows

— OR —

  • 4 cups JET-PUFFED Miniature Marshmallows
  • 6 cups Kellogg’s Rice Krispies cereal

Directions:

  1. In large saucepan melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat.
  2. Add Kellogg’s Rice Krispies cereal. Stir until well coated.
  3. Using buttered spatula or wax paper evenly press mixture into 13 x 9 x 2-inch pan coated with cooking spray. Cool. Cut into 2-inch squares. Best if served the same day.

Pretty simple, right?

What would you say if we told you there’s even a simpler – and way more FUN – way of making these treats?

We’re not kidding! Again, we turn to our friends at Kellogg’s who just introduced Rice Krispies Treat Kits that are going to blow your mind!

Available in three different types: Chocolate Frosted Donut, Vanilla Glazed Donut and get this… Magical Unicorn! The kits include the Rice Krispies, marshmallows, frosting, toppings, even the cutout for the magical unicorn shape. All you need to do is add butter, plus sugar and milk for the toppings.

These, along with our new family S’mores kits, are perfect for getting the family together for a fun activity that everyone will love. Plus, there’s a sweet reward at the end!

S’mores Family Kits and Other Seasonal Snacks

No matter the time of year, there’s nothing better than sitting around a fire, toasting marshmallows and making that delicious treat known as s’mores.

There’s so much to love about s’mores it’s hard to not be a fan. The smell of marshmallow as it starts to glow from the heat, the aroma of melting chocolate… are you craving one now?

If you’re like us, there’s times when we’re craving s’mores but don’t have all the ingredients available and it’s too late to go to the grocery store. Well, that problem has been solved!

We now offer a family size DIY s’mores kit that has everything you need to make delicious s’mores. Our kits contain marshmallows, delicious chocolate, and graham crackers. All you need to do is round everyone up and start making them. Each kit makes six nice-size s’mores that everyone will love.

S'mores Family Kits

The best part about these kits is that everything is individually sealed so they remain fresh. That means you can order a few kits, use one tonight, save a few for the weekend or for that upcoming camping trip at the lake.

We can’t think of a better way to spend the evening as a family than making s’mores!

And speaking of camping trips, we have some great snacks to take along on your adventure. Besides beef snacks that come in a variety of types and flavors, we have delicious snacks that are easy to pack up and take along.

Energizer Trail Mix is a great choice to take with you on a hike, a trip to the beach, or even to work for that afternoon pick up you need. Packed with peanuts, raisins, chocolate bits, and nuts, this snack mix is low sodium and gluten free.

If you’re looking for a fruit snack to take along, how can we not recommend Welch’s Fruit Snacks? These gummy fruit snacks are a great healthy snack that not only is delicious but provides 100% of the day’s requirement of Vitamin C. Plus, kids love them!

From s’mores to healthy snacks and everything in between, we have just what you’re looking for snacking year round!

Beefy Snacks for Big Appetites

Whether you’re planning on what to stock at your concession stand or looking for some savory snacks to pack along on a weekend family adventure, candy is dandy but beef is better!

Not only are beef snacks like jerky, sticks, and sausages popular and easy to take along, they’re also a great source of protein and makes for a great boost when hunger strikes.

One of the most popular beef snacks of all time is one we’re sure you’re familiar with – Slim Jim. These beef sticks are perfect for concession stands and make a great add-on item at convenience store checkouts. The Giant Slim Jim not only is eye catching, it’s delicious and is a true fan favorite.

Another best selling beef snack is one that has really gained popularity over the years – Jack Link’s. These beef jerky snacks are made from premium cuts of beef that are slow cooked and delectably flavored. Not only are they great for selling at concession stands, but they’re great to keep on hand at home for a quick snack that has a minimum of 14 grams of protein. Available in original mesquite, teriyaki and peppered flavors.

 

 

Looking for a little charcuterie to-go? We have two items from Duke’s that are great tag-along snacks. Both feature delicious Duke’s Shorty sausages paired with either cheddar or asiago crisps. Conveniently packaged, these are perfect to take with you on a trip, pack in lunches, or sell with a cold refreshing soft drink at your concession stand.

 

Adding beef jerky snacks to your concession stand is a sure bet. They’re always a hot seller at convenience stores and as last-minute pick-up items at checkouts. They’re guaranteed to be money makers at your event stand as well.

In addition to some of the items we featured above, we also have beef jerky snacks available from Amish Smokehouse and Buffalo Bills that are available in a very wide variety of flavors. Unlike perishable snacks or ones that may melt on a hot day, beef jerky has a longer shelf life and is packaged to maintain freshness.

If you have questions about what to stock at your concession stand this season, feel free to contact us as we’ve been helping little leagues and non-profits ring up profits for decades and can help you choose the right products for your fans.

Our Favorite Summertime Snacks

Summer is almost here and we can hardly wait! We’re counting down the days until we can head to the ball game, go boating on the lake, and fire up the BBQ for a weekend cookout. As we look ahead, we’re also thinking about our favorite summertime snacks that are the perfect companion to all your outdoor adventures!

Cotton Candy
Cotton Candy just screams “summertime!” A favorite snack that sold at little league concession stands, outdoor carnivals, and state fairs, cotton candy is also available in convenient packages for you to enjoy at home or on-the-go. Our delicious cotton candy, or candy floss as some call it, comes in a dozen different flavors packaged in a convenient 32oz tub.

Pickles
Pickles aren’t just for putting on top of your cheeseburger! They’re also great for tossing in a cooler and enjoying while boating, hiking, or just chilling in the backyard. We can’t think of a better low-calorie, healthy snack to have during the summer. Van Holten’s pickles are available in Dill, Kosher Garlic and the ever-popular flavor – Hot!

Sunflower Seeds
What’s our favorite salty snack? Sunflower seeds of course! These treats are pretty much the official snack of summer and are perfect for taking along to a little league game or buying at the baseball concession stand. David Sunflower Seeds are one of our most popular snack items and besides the original flavor we all know and love, they’re also available in BBQ and Ranch.

Beef Jerky
While a great snack year-round, Beef Jerky is especially popular during the summer because it’s easy to grab a bag, toss it in with the rest of your outdoor gear, and enjoy it as a protein-packed pick-me-up. We have a great selection of Amish Smokehouse Beef Jerky in nearly a dozen unique flavors as well as a great assortment of meats from Buffalo Bill’s.

Snack Mix
Whether you’re out hiking, biking or just walking around the block, when you get the urge for a snack, reach for a healthy one! Snax Club snack mixes are the perfect tag-along. Packed with nuts, raisins, candy, and other delicious bits. Some varieties are even gluten-free and contain ingredients to help give you an extra boost.

Of course, this is just a small sampling of all the delicious snack foods we have available in addition to our huge selection of candy. Be sure to check out our snack food page to see what else is available and stock up for all your summertime adventures.

Sunflower Seeds – A Popular Baseball Snack

Sunflower seeds are a popular summertime snack and remain a big seller at little league and other outdoor sports concession stands. The seeds sold in snack packs are still in the shell and are eaten by grabbing a few, popping them in your mouth, chewing, and spitting out the shell.

The most popular brand of sunflower seeds is DAVID and their slogan is “Eat. Spit. Be Happy!” In fact, according to the company, DAVID Seeds are the official seed of baseball because “baseball and spittin’ go hand and hand!”

While not the most dainty of snacks to eat, they remain a popular and healthy choice!

Sunflower seeds are roasted and then salted or flavored depending on what variety you’re purchasing. Most of us are familiar with the old standby, the original flavor, which is a fan favorite for its robust, salty flavor that you can taste with just your imagination.

Over the years, additional flavors of DAVID Sunflower Seeds have blossomed. Are you a fan of pickles? Then their vlasic Dill Pickle flavor may be just what you’re craving. Like BBQ? Don’t worry, there are a few different varieties of BBQ flavored sunflower seeds that you may want to check out.

Even some of the trendy flavors, like bacon, ranch, and even Old Bay have made their way into the DAVID line of flavored sunflower seeds. But at the end of the day, you just can’t beat an original!

Whether you’re looking for a summertime snack for yourself or looking to stock your league’s concession stand, we have all the popular flavors of sunflower seeds to satisfy you and your fan’s craving.
