Thought to have been invented at the Kellogg Company in the late 1930s, the treats are made of Rice Krispie cereal and melted marshmallows, though sometimes the marshmallows can be substituted with caramel or syrup as the binding agent.

Rice Bubbles

Rice Krispies is a popular breakfast cereal made by Kellogs since 1928. While Rice Krispie treats were usually homemade, Kellogs trademarked the brand name Rice Krispie Treats and started selling a pre-packaged version of the treat in 1995.

Today, any sweet treat that uses Rice Krispies and some form of sweet binding agent is called a rice krispie treat. In Australia and New Zealand, where the cereal is marketed as Rice Bubbles, the sweet treat is called rice bubble slices or rice bubble cakes.

How to Celebrate?

  • Make Rice Krispies treats and share them with your friends and co-workers.
  • Add gourmet twists to the snack by adding nuts, saffron and cardamom.
  • Make your Rice Krispies treats more colorful by crushing some candies or adding some sprinkles to them.
  • Make Rice Krispies pops. Mold the treat into a shape of your choice, insert a stick in the treat and when it hardens, serve as is or decorate with melted sugar, icing or sprinkles.
  • Staying away from sugar? What about making a savory version of the treat? Just substitute the marshmallows with cheese, flour and butter.
