From our house, the closest grocery store is 20 minutes away, and Dollar General is only 10 minutes away. This means that when we run out of an ingredient or need something quickly, we go to Dollar General.

Thankfully, they stock a wide variety of pantry staples and refrigerated goods, which include important things like baking supplies and ice cream! (And you can save on your baking needs with Dollar General with sales and coupons.)

When they challenged me to make my favorite baked good using their Clover Valley family of products, I debated making rocky road brownies or perfect chocolate chip cookies. But what I really wanted was just good ol’ fashioned crispy rice treats instead.

This simple classic is easy to make, which makes it the perfect treat during a busy week.

Actually, I made these just last week during our one and only “big” snow this season. But in a burst of “inspiration,” I picked up Fruity Pebbles instead, imagining just how yummy they would be. Unfortunately, what I realized is that they’re called crispy rice treats for a reason, and while I had made a small batch of the traditional treats for our food dye-sensitive daughter, I’ve been craving them for myself ever since!

Classic Crispy Rice Treats

Prep Time: 10 minutes | Total Time: 20 minutes


  • 2 tablespoons Clover Valley butter
  • 10-ounce package Clover Valley mini marshmallows
  • 6 cups Clover Valley Crisp Rice cereal


Prepare a 9″x9” or 9″x13” pan ahead of time, either by buttering the bottom and sides or lining with parchment paper.

In a large saucepan, melt butter over medium-low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until melted and smooth.

Remove from heat.

Working quickly, add cereal to the pan and mix until all of the cereal is coated in marshmallow.

Transfer to the prepared dish. Cover with wax paper and press down firmly.

Let sit for 10 minutes, until the marshmallow has cooled, before slicing and serving.
