Tiny New York Kitchen: Dark Chocolate Chip Macadamia Nut Rice Krispie Treats

By Victoria Hart Glavin of Tiny New York Kitchen

I think everyone loves Rice Krispie Treats so I decided to give the original recipe a fancy makeover by adding toasted chopped macadamia nuts and dark chocolate chips. The result is unbelievably delicious.


  • 1/2 Cup Butter
  • 20 Ounces Regular Marshmallows
  • 1 Cup Toasted & Rough Chopped Macadamia Nuts
  • 2 Cups Dark Chocolate Chips
  • 6 Cups Rice Krispie Cereal

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. On a parchment paper lined baking sheet spread out the macadamia nuts. Place in oven for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool completely. Rough chop nuts and set aside. Line a 13x9x2 inch pan and either coat with cooking spray or grease with butter. In a large-size pot melt butter over a low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat. You will need to work quickly at this point. Add macadamia nuts and stir. Add cereal and stir until well coated. Add chocolate chips and stir until combined. You don’t really want the chocolate to melt. Transfer mixture to pan. Using either a buttered spatula or wax paper evenly press mixture into pan until evenly distributed. Let cool completely. Cut into 2 inch squares or any size that you prefer. Transfer to serving platter and watch them disappear. Makes about 12 servings.

While living in France, Victoria studied French cooking from an expert Lyonnais chef. Victoria learned to love the local culture of preparing and enjoying fresh, seasonal foods. While in France, Victoria experienced the joys of shopping for local produce at the market and preparing fresh foods simply and beautifully in order to enhance the experience of the table. During her time in France, she says she “learned how to squeeze tomatoes at the local market” and “took everything in by osmosis.”
