These Rice Krispie treats aren’t your basic marshmallow treats. They’re packed with coconut, white chocolate and pastel M&Ms to give them an extra festive flare.


  • 5 cups crisp rice cereal (Rice Krispies)
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter
  • 1 10-ounce bag large marshmallows or 4 cups mini marshmallows
  • 1 1/3 cup shredded coconut (+ more for garnish)
  • 1 teaspoon coconut extract (optional)
  • 1 4-ounce bar white chocolate (I used Ghirardelli’s white chocolate), chopped (or 1/2 cup white chocolate chips)
  • 1/2 cup pastel M&Ms


Note: Measure all ingredients before you begin, as you will need to move very quickly once the Rice Krispies are added to the marshmallow mixture so it doesn’t set.

  • Grease a 13 x 9-inch pan with butter or spray with cooking spray. Set aside.
  • Microwave butter and marshmallows on high for 1 – 2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds, until everything is melted.
  • Pour Rice Krispies into marshmallow and stir quickly. Add coconut and coconut extract and continue stirring.
  • Add white chocolate and stir.
  • Add M&Ms and stir.
  • Using a buttered spatula, press Rice Krispie treats into pan and garnish with additional shredded coconut, if desired.
  • Cool, slice and enjoy!
