White Chocolate Rice Krispies Bars

This fancy version of a Rice Krispie bar (you’ll see why I refer to them as fancy in a moment) was inspired from one I had the incredible opportunity of tasting when visiting the kitchen at one of my most favorite Pastry Chefs place of employment.

Now, there are two reasons why I refer to them as fancy. One they do not call for marshmallows, not that you couldn’t fancy up marshmallows… but, just go with me on this one. And two, it’s topped with a smooth and luscious white chocolate dulce de leche Bavarian cream, finely grated white chocolate, and a few white chocolate chips for looks.

Don’t let the title of these bars scare you into not making them, they are so easy my 12 year old could make them! Shh… the secret to their simplicity is one key special ingredient.

1 tablespoon vegetable oil
3/4 cups Rice Krispies
pinch of salt

Line an 8 x 8 inch square pan with parchment paper.

Melt white chocolate over a double broiler or in a microwave. Stir in vegetable oil and salt. Chocolate should be smooth and a bit shiny at this point. Fold in Rice Krispies.

Spread over the prepared pan and place in the refrigerator to chill.

Dulce de Leche White Chocolate Bavarian Cream

8 ounces white chocolate, chopped finely
2 cups heavy whipping cream
1/2 cup World Market Dulce de Leche White Hot Chocolate Powder

Fold in half of the whipped cream into the melted white chocolate mixture. Fold in remaining whipped cream. Pour over the white chocolate Rice Krispies base. Return to the refrigerator and let it chill for at least 4 hours, preferable overnight.

Before serving you can dust the top with a little more Dulce de Leche White Hot Chocolate Powder or grated white chocolate and top each bar with a few white chocolate chips.

I think a shop that sold fancy rice krispie treats in various flavors could do very, very well. These would belong on the menu, no doubt.

hi Josie
those are incredible rice crispy bars, white chocolate instead of marshmallows is a nice trade….then again anything with white chocolate is a winner in my book!
Now if you could just mail me a few I would be a very happy chef!

Oh my. This looks divine. I love the look of this — so glam and chic. :-p And the dulce de leche bavarian cream action you got going on just puts it over the top. Yum!


17 The Chocolate Priestess March 7, 2011 at 4:07 pm

Without marshmallows are they really rice krispy treats?


18 Joy March 8, 2011 at 6:58 pm

This is so cool. I can’t wait to try this for my family.

WOW! I haven’t seen anything quite like these! I’m definitely going to give them a try. I can totally see these being a fun dessert at a party too. :)


20 Julia August 21, 2011 at 10:26 am

These are LEGIT fancy schmacy rice crispie treats. Who needs marshmallow when you have dulce de leche white chocolate bavarian cream?!


21 Paula December 19, 2011 at 11:48 am

I tried to make these and they came out terrible, the no problem with the rice krispie layer, the top layer never solidified. I wasted so much ingredients, do not attempt to make these, I had to through the whole thing out


22 Susanne December 23, 2011 at 7:42 pm

For those of you going to attempt this recipe, 3/4 c krispies & 8 oz of chocolate do not cover the bottom of an 8 x 8 pan. You have to at least double the recipe to cover it. It would be better to triple or quadruple if you want a treat with any kind of thickness.


23 Daydreamer Desserts December 23, 2011 at 7:46 pm

Hi Susanne,

Thanks for stopping by. I made this recipe exactly as written. If you take a look at my photos, I used an 8×8 pan and the entire pan was covered with rice krispies. -The bottom layer is supposed to be fairly thin.



24 Susanne December 23, 2011 at 8:42 pm

Hi Josie.

Mine did not look like yours at all. Maybe b/c your photos are very close up. Yours appear to be fairly thick. Mine did not spread to the edge of pan. I’m in the process of waiting for the topping to cool. I see that someone else’s topping did not set; I hope mine doesn’t do that b/c everything has been very tasty. I do wonder though, when you say white chocolate, do you mean white chocolate bar/chips or white chocolate coating? I know it makes a big difference when you’re making cakeballs.


25 Susanne December 24, 2011 at 7:17 am

Like Paula, my topping not did solidify. It came out like pudding. I did not, however, throw them out. I ate a small portion with a spoon to taste them. Quite tasty! Now I’m trying to figure out how I serve them and still make them look as delicious as they taste. Still trying to figure out why the topping isn’t setting though. Anyone have ideas? I was thinking it was the type of chocolate.


26 Pamela April 6, 2012 at 5:31 am

I also made these and wish I had read through the comments first. My top did not solidify. I can tell from taste that this would have been awesome. I did everything by the recipe and used the best chocolate so that is not why it did not solidify. Very expensive effort as I had to special order the white chocolate powder. Plese let us know what may have gone wrong.

Hi Pamela,

So sorry to hear your bars didn’t set. Did you let the melted white chocolate, half the whipping cream, and dulce de leche white hot chocolate powder mixture come to room temperature? The remaining half of the whipping cream needed to be whipped into soft peaks, then carefully folded into the melted chocolate and cream mixture.

These look great. How long will they keep far if I ship them to another state?
