Rice Krispies are pretty darn American, and pretty darn tasty. It is so easy to fancy them up a bit with different flavors – chocolate butterscotch, chocolate mint, peanut butter…but I never tried coconut OR white chocolate until today. And…YUM.

White Chocolate Coconut Krispies


  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 1 package (10 oz.) regular marshmallows, OR 4 cups miniature marshmallows
  • 6 cups crisped rice cereal
  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
  • red and blue sprinkles for 4th of July! (optional)

Add butter and marshmallows to a microwave safe bowl. Microwave for about 90 seconds, remove from microwave and stir. Microwave for another minute if necessary.

Slowly add crisped rice cereal, about 2 cups at a time. Stir. Add shredded coconut and white chocolate chips, stir until combined.

Using buttered spatula or wax paper evenly press mixture into 13 x 9 x 2-inch pan coated with cooking spray. Refrigerate for about an hour. Cut into squares.
