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


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!

  • 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.

  1. Dorothy, r u seriously baking with candy corn now? Do food bloggers really have to prep that much in advance?!

  2. Hahaha, good luck with your remodel! We lived in an old, tiny house with an apartment sized oven (a house they actually TORE down after we left) for 6 months before we moved into our new house — so I can understand how excited you’ll be just for NEW. Lol. I am obsessed with Butterfinger and these Krispie Treats!

  3. A kitchen remodel sounds like a dream and a nightmare rolled into one! But these treats are a dream come true. Easy and delicious!

  4. So happy for your kitchen remodel! It’s going to be so exciting 😀 In the meantime, I’m happy to sort Barbie heels in exchange for these RKTs!

  5. OMG I love these, I can’t say no to a rice krispy treat, they are just too ooey gooey good, and these with butterfingers are AMAZING!

  6. I hear ya about cleaning out. I get home from work at 6, so from 6:30-10:00p Thursday and Friday and all day Saturday, my sons room was purged because his bday is coming up. I think I hate Lego’s right now. On the plus side, which is what kept me motivated, my goal was to take 2 bags of outgrown toys to the Boys and Girls Club. We wound up taking 3 and it felt so good to clean out and give those toys to other kids who will love them. Keep it positive and it will get done. 🙂

    BTW, I love Krispy treats. I will try these for sure. My great grandma and I used to make peanut butter Rice Krispy treats and I love and make them still. The addition of a little crunch and chocolate, I am all over that!

    1. Oh my gosh the kid stuff. It’s everywhere. I need to clean out everything and take loads to Goodwill!

  7. Oh, yes. I can see how these krispie treats are a struggle. Someone will have to stage an intervention if ever I’m caught alone with these treats. Good luck with the cleaning.

  8. These look SO good. I personally LOVE easy non-recipe recipes!  Sometimes, I don’t want anything complicated you know?  Good luck with the reno and all the cleaning!  How much does that shoe sorting job pay? haha

  9. Sometimes the biggest genius is in the smallest and easiest things. You’ve done it here. Brilliant.
