I’m embarrassed to even call this a recipe because it’s so easy.

Butterfinger Krispie Treats - an easy recipe full of Butterfinger Candy Bars!

PIN IT NOW TO SAVE FOR LATER 

We are T-30 days away from Operation: Kitchen Remodel. In the next 30 days I need to clean out our (converted to a playroom/storeroom) garage, set up two temporary kitchens (one for food, the other for work), and pack up all the non-essentials in my kitchen and find somewhere to put it all.

You know how social media makes everyone think everyone else’s homes are perfect? Yeah, mine is not. What you see on this blog is 2 square feet of my house. The rest of it? Looks like an episode of hoarders.

(Not really, but I’m too embarrassed to show you actual photos, so you know it must be bad.)

Today we are *planning* to start cleaning out the garage. Between pantry overflow, kitchen storage overflow, and polly pocket heads, that room is my nemesis. I’m sure we’ll start the day with all good intentions and then I’ll see a squirrel and get distracted.

Does anyone actually like sorting Barbie shoes and Legos? (If anyone said yes, please email me. I’d like to hire you.)

EASY Butterfinger Krispie Treats - one of our favorite recipes!

My efforts to begin cleaning out my pantry are actually how these Butterfinger Krispie Treats came about. I need to stop going to Target and stocking up on baking supplies and start using the ones hidden in the back of my storage. I need to make room in my overflow pantry for all the crap that’s actually in my real pantry. #thestruggleisreal

Last week I was searching for candy corn (I know, right?) and came across a full bag of mini Butterfinger candy bars and a box of Rice Krispies I’d bought for a recipe and never used. I also found 3 open bags of mini marshmallows, which I’m blaming on Jordan. What do those three things equal? My favorite rice krispie treats ever!

Also probably the easiest recipe ever. Have you ever made krispie treats? The hardest part about making them is not eating the entire batch in one sitting. #thatstruggleisrealtoo

The BEST recipe: EASY Butterfinger Krispie Treats! Make them in less than 10 minutes!

If you’ve never made rice krispie treats, here are a few tips for you:

  • Have all your ingredients measured and ready to go before you start. It’s a fast process and can get quite hectic (kind of like making fudge).
  • Use a really large bowl unless your dog likes eating rice krispie treats off of the floor.
  • You could add 1/4 cup of peanut butter to the marshmallow mixture while you’re heating it if you want these extra peanut buttery. Or add 1 cup of peanut butter chips!
  • Spray your hands with cooking spray before pressing them down in the pan. You could also use wax paper, but where’s the fun in that? Sucking the burns off your fingers is part of the fun. 😉
  • Try to wait until they cool to eat them. And don’t eat all the Butterfingers before they go in the recipe. You’ve been warned!

Instructions

  • Line a 9x13" pan with foil and spray well with cooking spray. The foil is optional, but it makes it easy to remove the bars to slice.
  • Place butter and marshmallows in a large microwave safe bowl. Heat on 50% power in 1 minute increments, stirring after each, until melted and smooth (for about 2-3 minutes in an 1100W microwave). While the mixture is heating, measure the  cereal into another bowl.

Store in an airtight container for up to 3 days, or freeze. Place wax or parchment paper between layers so they don't stick.

  1. There’s nothing to be embarrassed about — these look incredible!  I love butterfingers. 🙂  The remodel sounds so exciting, but yes — it is a lot of work and chaos.  It’s so worth it in the end — best of luck with the garage!

  2. you made butterfinger rice krispie treats!!!! yummmmm!!! love! and ohmygawd, so excited for Operation: Kitchen Remodel!!! sounds like you have a ton to do but the payoff will be awesome!!! my kitchen is the same way, stuff everywhere. .  it’s not pretty. .  can’t wait to see the new kitchen!!! how long will it take? whenever i watch anything on HGTV, all I want is a new kitchen. .  is that too much to ask for?!!!! so happy for you, Dorothy! 

  3. This and all your butterfinger treats look amazing! I actually love how easy these are to make! So yum 🙂

  4. I need to stop going to Target and stocking up on baking supplies and start using the ones hidden in the back of my storage.   <—- STORY OF MY LIFE! 🙂

    I love RKTreats of any kind and with Butterfingers, I'd be in heaven. Like I'd rather have RKTs than some super fancy dessert 🙂

    Oh and to avoid that licking the marshmallow off your semi-burnt hands, I just use a large spatula that I spray really well with cooking spray and voila, no burnt hands 🙂

    1. It’s so HARD not to just buy more candy and stuff. I’m a hoarder when it comes to all of it and then I wonder why I have 6 open bags of Rolos…

  5. True story: when I was first thinking about becoming a food blogger, I told my husband that it would never work because our house is too messy. He looked at me like I was crazy and explained that it’s just a tiny portion of the house that gets photographed. I felt REALLY dumb.
    Its a good thing you hoard, because then you find Butterfingers which turn into the best krispie treats ever!

    1. LOL, I look at those home bloggers who shoot their Living Rooms and wonder if they have a prop house outdoors somewhere…
