Yer a wizard, 'arry!

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes


  • 6 cups rice crispy cereal
  • 1/2 cup butterscotch chips
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, browned
  • 10 ounces marshmallows
  • 1/4 cup butterscotch ice cream topping


    1. Lightly coat cake pan(s) of desired size (I used 9×13) in cooking spray or melted butter; set aside.

    2. In a large bowl, combine the cereal and butterscotch chips; set aside.

    3. Place the butter in a large saucepan set over medium heat. Stir constantly until the butter turns brown and begins to smell nutty. Remove from heat immediately.

    4. Add the marshmallows and butterscotch ice cream topping to the saucepan containing the butter. Stir constantly until the marshmallows are completely melted.

    5. Stir in the cereal mixture until it is evenly coated with the melted marshmallows.

    6. Once combined, press the mixture into the prepared pan(s). Allow to cool completely before frosting or serving.


Your yield will depend on how large you cut your rice krispie treats.

  • These look good, but you don’t mention how to use the butterbeer (butterscotch) syrup in the instructions. Do you add it to the melted mixture? Or use it for frosting? That seems the most likely to me, but I just thought I’d ask.

    • Hi Liz! Thanks for the comment — and for bringing that error to my attention! I have edited the post to reflect that you add the butterbeer/butterscotch syrup into the marshmallow/butter mixture. Once those three ingredients are smoothly blended together, add the cereal and butterscotch chips to make the krispie treats. Hope that helps — and again, my apologies for the oversight!
