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!

  • 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
  • optional melted chocolate for dipping


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.

    This recipe is…Genius! It is so easy to make, comes out perfect, fulfills the rice crispy bar itch that vegetarians couldn’t scratch due to gelatin in the marshmallows and other unmentionables (Yes, I know Trader Joe’s has gelatin free marshmallow rice bars, but is there healthy Nutella type spread in it? Case closed.), has hazelnut/chocolate spread (that’s enough right there), cocoa…
    I skipped the dipping in chocolate due to a healthy dose of chocolate from cleaning the bowls:) And, they are ready for Super Bowl tomorrow! Probably not quite as healthy as Black Bean Brownies, but another crowd pleaser, for sure. I love the new cookbook, of course. Thanks!

    love the sounds of this recipe! Think there’s room to add coconut oil? I need some good fats for my son with cystic fibrosis and he’s a sweet eater. Thanks!

    Hi Katie!

    I was just wondering if you had an idea how I could replace Nutella in this recipe by any chance? I do not have any on hand at the moment!!

    Thank you SO much!

    Ta-Daaaaa! Here I am. Probably your only subscriber/cookbook owner who doesn’t like chocolate. But guess who does. My husband . He is a chocaholic in every sense of the word. At least once a week I make something from your book or blog for him and he devours every bite. Thank you for all that you’ve created.

    I made these today and they are unbelievable! I don’t think I’ll eat regular Rice Krispie treats ever again! Thanks Katie!

    These are AMAZING! Recipe is so easy, and much less messy than I expected. My kids love them, my husband and I love them! They are very rich and chocolaty. Last night we sliced the bars in half and spread on peanut butter and a tiny pinch of salt…it was like eating a Wachamacallit Candy bar!

    I just made these this afternoon for this evening’s dinner – WOW!
    Easy, quick, delicious – doesn’t get any better!
    I used the ‘bad’ Nutella, but am definitely making my own for next time to cut down on the sugar content.
    Thx for a great simply great recipe!
