Gooey Rice Krispie Delight Bars

While there’s no shortage of Rice Krispie recipes, this one stands out by utilizing an entire can of sweetened condensed milk. Yes, you read that right—an entire 14-ounce can! The result? A delectably sweet treat that remains wonderfully soft and gooey. For an extra special touch, consider making your own homemade marshmallows.

Ingredients & Preparation:

  • Sweetened Condensed Milk: Embrace the sweetness by using the full can of sweetened condensed milk. It’s what gives these bars their incredible softness and gooey texture. Ensure you’re using sweetened condensed milk, not evaporated milk.
  • Butter: Opt for unsalted butter, though salted can be substituted if necessary.

Can I Customize the Size of the Pan?

Absolutely! The size of the baking dish will determine the thickness of your bars. While I prefer a thick bar, you can use a 9×9-inch or 9×13-inch dish for thinner bars.

Can I Freeze Gooey Rice Krispie Delight Bars?

Yes! After allowing the bars to cool completely, cut them into individual portions and wrap each one in plastic wrap. Store the wrapped bars in a freezer-safe bag for up to 3-4 months. Don’t forget to label and date the package for easy reference.

Gooey Rice Krispie Delight Bars


  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 can (14 ounces / 400 ml) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 bag (10 ounces / 285 g) miniature marshmallows
  • 6 cups (174 g) rice cereal


  1. Spray an 8×8-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray and set it aside.
  2. In a large pot over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the sweetened condensed milk and stir until well combined. Bring the mixture to a simmer, stirring constantly to prevent burning.
  3. Add the marshmallows to the pot, stirring frequently until completely melted.
  4. Remove the pot from heat and fold in the rice cereal using a clean rubber spatula (spraying the spatula with nonstick spray can prevent sticking). Stir until the cereal is evenly coated.
  5. Transfer the mixture into the prepared baking dish and press it into an even layer.
  6. Allow the bars to cool to room temperature before cutting and serving. Enjoy the gooey goodness!
