Chocolate-Hazelnut Crispy Treats

A favorite childhood treat gets a sweet upgrade with the addition of chocolate-hazelnut spread. Drizzle each treat with chocolate and a sprinkle of sea salt for the ultimate treat.



  • 6 cups rice cereal
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 10.5 ounces (1 bag) mini marshmallows
  • 1 cup chocolate-hazelnut spread (e.g. Nutella)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste or vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt
  • For the topping:
  • 1/4 cup dark chocolate or white chocolate chips
  • coarse sea salt

Cooking Directions

  • 1
    Prepare a 9x13" pan by lightly greasing with oil or butter. Line the pan with parchment paper and an additional light coating of oil or butter.
  • 2
    Melt butter in saucepan over low heat.
  • 3
    Add in mini marshmallows and stir continuously until melted.
  • 4
    Add vanilla extract, Nutella and a pinch of salt, stirring to combine.
  • 5
    Mix in cereal, until all cereal is coated, and then press mixture into an even layer in the 9x13” pan. (Tip: to prevent cereal from sticking to your hands, coat your hands with a light layer of oil or butter before pressing the mixture into the pan.)
  • 6
    Set aside pan aside to allow treats to firm up and then cut into squares.
  • 7
    Melt chocolate and drizzle over treats. Sprinkle with sea salt.
