The Step-by-Step Process

  • Step 1 – Before getting started, line an 8″x8″ baking pan with parchment paper, or opt for a silicone pan.
  • Step 2 – Add the cannabutter to a large pot over medium-low heat. Allow the cannabutter for approximately 2-3 minutes.
  • Step 3 – Add the fresh marshmallows to the pot.
  • Step 4 – Stirring consistently with a silicone spatula until they are completely melted.
  • Step 5 – Turn off the heat and stir in the vanilla extract and salt.
  • Step 6 – Add your cereal of choice.
  • Step 7 – Continue to stir until the cereal is well coated with the marshmallow mix.
  • Step 8 – Pour the mixture into the reserved 8×8″ pan. Use the spatula to flatten out the mixture, creating a nice even layer.
  • Step 9 – Allow the mixture to sit and cool at room temperature for at least 1 hour before cutting.
  • Step 10 – Using a sharp knife, cut the rice crispy treats into nine pieces.
  • Step 11 – Remove them from the baking pan and enjoy immediately or store them in an airtight container.

Storage Instructions

You can store your treats in an air-tight container at room temperature for up to a week.

Alternate Cannabis Infusion Options

As with all things edibles, there is more than one way to infuse something. Below we will explore all of the different ways you could infuse this recipe.

  • Concentrates and extracts: Easily make these treats with concentrates like distillate or FECO. Just be sure to check if your concentrate needs to be decarbed first. Then, simply mix the concentrate with normal butter or coconut oil, and then prepare the recipe according to the instructions below with your mixture.
  • Tincture: if you want to use an alcohol tincture in this recipe, be sure to evaporate the alcohol and make FECO first.
  • Decarbed Flower: You can add decarbed flower or decarbed kief right into the flour mixture. Just be mindful of adding the right dose for you, especially if you are not a regular consumer of edibles.

Notes and Expert Tips

  • Use all things silicone, if you can. The marshmallow mixture is STICKY! Silicone baking pans and spatulas are your friends.
  • Cool the mixture at room temperature for up to 1 hour before cutting to yield the best results.
  • Ensure you follow the storage instructions and remember it’s best to place this recipe away from sunlight.
  • Be careful how much THC you add per serving, and always dose according to your needs.

  1. I note that this recipe has 2X as much cannabutter (6 TBSP) for 6 cups of rice krispies as the original Kelloggs recipe, which calls for only 3 TBSP of butter. Won’t this make the cannabutter version quite greasy compared with regular RC squares?

  2. Hi Joe, no, I did not find this version of the recipe to be any more greasy than the traditional recipe 🙂

  3. Hello Ms. L, I haven’t tried this recipe with shredded wheat, but I would probably use 6 cups crushed 🙂 Let us know how it turns out for you!

  4. I’m confused with what your measurements are for the marshmallows. 10 ounces doesn’t equal 5 cups. 10 ounces is about 1.25 cups not 5 cups. Can you please clarify? Thank you!

  5. Hi Heather. Using the Jet-Puffed Mini Marshmallows, a 10oz bag is roughly 420 mini marshmallows that total to about 6 cups. I hope this helps!

  6. Made this recipe using the cocoa rice crispys came out delicious thank you for this recipe
