Nutella Rice Crispy Treats

Chewy homemade chocolate Nutella rice crispy treats!

6 Ingredient Nutella Rice Crispy Treats:

Yesterday, I met a boy who said he hated chocolate.

It made me sad. I went home and ate two nutella rice krispy treats.

After that, I felt much better 😉

Do you know anyone who doesn’t like chocolate?

Although I don’t understand them, I love finding people who don’t like chocolate… it just means there is more for me.

These ultra chocolatey Nutella crispy treats could not be easier to make. Simply combine everything together, and press into an 8×8 pan. There’s no baking required, and you only need 6-7 ingredients!

Nutella Rice Crispy Treats


  • 3 cups rice crispies, gf if desired
  • 2 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tbsp Healthy Nutella OR chocolate spread of choice
  • 1/2 cup agave or honey
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder OR chocolate protein powder

Recipe: In a large bowl, mix all ingredients but the rice crispies. Melt to a stir-able consistency (either in the microwave or on the stove), then pour over the cereal and stir very well, making sure to coat all the crispies. Line an 8×8 pan with wax or parchment paper and spread the mixture evenly into the pan. Place a sheet of wax or parchment paper on top, then press down as firmly as you can. Really press it down! Freeze for at least a half hour before slicing, and store the homemade bars in the fridge or freezer. Dip bottoms in melted chocolate if desired.

    First Post!!!

    These look delectable! ha and yes I know people allergic to chocolate 🙁 so sad! I haven’t been able to put nutella in my house recently because I usually eat the whole thing in one sitting…oops 🙂

  2. Hannah says

    I don’t think my grandmother likes chocolate…but I’m not sure we’re related. 😉 Just kidding. But not about the not liking chocolate part.

    Mmmm, these look tasty! I’m in Dallas, Texas, right now, and I think I might find and kidnap you and make you my kitchen slave! ;D

    I positively adore Nutella, but unfortunately anything with white and processed sugars makes me sick. Sometime, I have to make yours! You’ve saved my Nutella life!

    I didn’t like chocolate as a kid–the only way I could tolerate it was if it had tons of peanut butter, and even then I’d still choose sour candies if given a choice. While I’ve come around to appreciate chocolate as an adult, I still don’t LOVE it like you, and I still can’t handle dark or bittersweet chocolate. Before going vegan, I couldn’t even do semi-sweet, but I’ve started liking that since I have limited options.

    I really hate coffee and beer, too, and the common thread in all three is bitter taste. Maybe bitter flavors are just too strong for me?

      You might be a “supertaster”. Evidently that is a common problem. Also, don’t like a lot of vegetables.

    as always: yummy recipe! I want to munch some now;) I was a bit sad to see your posts are getting shorter these days – you must be preoccupied with sth. else?! I know it’s weird, I just like to read more about the person behind the blog.. but keep going! I am a huge fan of your healthy desserts ( I did make your snickerdoodle blondies a few days ago and can’t wait to try the pb secret cookies, the pb protein bar and everything related to chocolate!!! 🙂 )

    What a beautiful and heart warming story.

    Makes me want to….



    But then again, what doesn’t?

    Is it wrong if I make these for breakfast??


  6. Lynn says

    My mother craved chocolate while she was pregnant with me. I’m not sure how much she ate, but I would get severely ill if I consumed any bit of chocolate when I was young. This made me hate chocolate. I still am not a big fan of it, but I do enjoy a little chocolate flavor now and then.

  7. Hayley says

    Those look delicious! Much better than the marshmallow rice crispy squares.
    My friend is allergic to chocolate but, because of that, it tastes awful to her and makes her sick so she doesn’t mind not eating it at all!

  8. Stephanie @ Mr and Meatless says

    I DO know someone who doesn’t like chocolate! It really is sad, isn’t it? I remember the first time I learned this about her. I made Irish Car Bomb cupcakes for St Patty’s Day and she took a bite (to be polite) and CRINGED! Sad. Sad. Sad. But you’re right. More for us! 🙂

    I used to be like OBSESSED with Nutella. But since clean eating I’ve cut it out, I’ve eaten it a few times for treats but I don’t crave it anymore because of all the sugar! I can’t believe I haven’t made your healthy Nutella yet… So disappointed in myself.

  10. Lela says

    I LOVE CHOCOLATE!!!!! I was a chocoholic before the name was even invented. This was back in 1942, see what I mean? There is nothing else on the planet but my ever lovin’ CHOCOLATE.

  11. Sushma says

    Love your blog, Katie! Ever since I found your blog, not even a single day goes by without me checking your blog (except probably for those few days after my daughter was born 🙂 )
    These rice krispy treats look great! Can you believe I have never tasted rice krispies? I guess I need to get some and make this treat asap 🙂

    • Sushma says

      Oh and nobody in my family likes chocolate, except me 🙁
      So I whip up chocolate desserts whenever I get to meet my chocolate loving friends 🙂

  12. Kristen @ Happy Running Mama says

    It is confession time. I am a chocoholic. I am the daughter of a chocoholic and the granddaughter of a chocoholic as well. I looooove all things chocolate. My 4 year-old loves chocolate, too. But, somewhat shockingly, my almost 3 year-old daughter doesn’t like chocolate. I don’t really understand it and I keep giving her things with chocolate just to see if she has changed her mind. It is so confusing! How could I give birth to someone who doesn’t like chocolate?!

    Those look amazing, by the way. Can’t wait to try them!

  13. Lisa says

    I was a BIG fan of nutella growing up. Well, for a short while until I got sick from it. Yah, that about ruined nutella for me, but these I think could make a way better replacement:)

    • Donna says

      Guilty as accused..I DO feel “weird” for not craving “real-deal” chocolate…I tend to favor all things with good quality Swiss or Valhrona WHITE chocolate…or toffee..caramel things going on…but not the super-dark p.c. 70% and above chocolate that everyone raves about….I understand the peanut M&M fellow fanatics…and vanilla ice cream chocolate chip mint fans…but when the whole “deal” is about dark chocolate…I simply “can’t”…Could it be a “bitterness” aversion that one gets over in time?!..I WANT to like the darker varietal…as I know it is less glycemic and better for you…perhaps time will tell!….Love this riff on rice krispie treats..and since my daughter is an avowed nutella fan and Rice Krispy Treats fan…this should please on both fronts!…Love you and your consistently excellent blog Katie…you always come up with the best questions (and comments/responses) from your loyal followers!

  14. Sarah the official CCK drooler says

    My brother hates chocolate, which means no chocolate anything for me…. I mean HIM…on his birthday 🙁 I can’t imagine the sad life he’ll have to live with no chocolate. He does like white chocolate, but really, I don’t count that as the real stuff.
    chocolate=happiness forever. ok, that was totally my PMS speaking.
    Maybe men don’t like chocolate as much since they don’t have any PMS to deal with?

    • CJ says

      I don’t think you can play the gender card here. As I stated above, I’m not a huge fan of chocolate (and am female), and my husband and youngest son are both huge chocoholics. If we get chocolate bars to hand out at Halloween, I literally have to hide it from my husband so that he doesn’t eat it all before the big night. He’s gets major chocolate cravings at certain times and NEEDS it–he claims that it’s his male PMS.
