Celebrate National Rice Krispies Treats Day!

Attention all food lovers: it’s time to celebrate! September 18th is National Rice Krispies Treats Day, and we think that calls for a party. But before you pull out your baking supplies, let’s take a look at the history of these delicious treats. Who made them? What kinds are there? And what other creative ways can you use them?

The History of Rice Krispies Treats

In 1939, two women named Malitta Jensen and Mildred Day developed the recipe for Rice Krispies Treats while working at the Kellogg Company test kitchen. They used butter, marshmallows and cereal to create this sweet treat—and they were an instant hit! Even though the original recipe featured Kellogg’s Rice Krispies, you can make these treats with any type of cereal.

Types of Rice Krispy Treats

These days, it seems like there are endless possibilities when it comes to Rice Krispy treats. From s’mores to pumpkin spice to birthday cake flavor, there is something for everyone’s taste buds—and even those with dietary restrictions. You can find vegan and gluten-free varieties in stores or on the internet. You can also make your own custom creations by adding things like sprinkles, chocolate chips or peanut butter. The sky is truly the limit!

But if you’re feeling adventurous this National Rice Krispies Treats Day, why not take things up a notch? Here are a few creative ideas:

  • Top your treats with colorful frosting or melted chocolate for an extra special presentation
  • Use cookie cutters to shape your treats into different shapes (stars, hearts, animals—you name it!)
  • Make mini versions using a mini muffin tin instead of a 9×13 dish
  • Dip them in white chocolate or sea salt caramel for an extra twist

So don’t be afraid to get creative this National Rice Krispy Treats Day! Whether you try one of our ideas or come up with something new entirely—it’ll be fun either way. Just make sure you have plenty of milk on hand; after all, nothing goes better with rice krispy treats than milk! Enjoy!
