Pistachio Rice Krispie Treats: add a box of Pistachio #JELLO pudding mix to give your treats a fun twist on flavor
I get it. I have an addiction to Rice Krispie Treats. But once I figured out you can add pudding mix to change the flavor, well, the possibilities are endless. 

And I loved THIS fudge so much I wanted to recreate it in a krispie treat!

Genius move people. First I tried this banana version, then I was ready to experiment. Imagine coconut pudding mixed into your krispies with some additional toasted coconut and dark chocolate….why yes. Don’t mind if I do.

Now that I’ve wiped the drool off my keyboard, will you marry me??? These have got to be the world’s most perfect krispie treat!

I am trying the pudding trick you use with my next batch of RKTreats.

I notice you say to melt over the stove. Do you think it matters in the finished product if one uses the stove or micro? I always melt in the micro. Yours always look soooo gooey and perfect which is why I ask! (and using 5 c not 6 cups is huge too!)

Now I am going to have to try this version too and that pistachio fudge!

@Averie- I’ve never tried in the microwave, so I can’t say one way or another. Using less Krispies though helps keep them softer. Same goes with not PRESSING too hard into the pan. Enjoy!

My food addiction would have to be tacos. Seriously. I eat tacos atleast twice a week. Sad, but true! Ha I love that your addicted to rice crispy treats. These ones look delish!

Hi Holly, was wondering if ever tried making Mini Tacos from Tortilla shells, super easy and really easy to eat. They are a hit at parties.

Great idea! Never thought of using a pudding mix, this changes everything! Couldn’t have picked a better flavor!

Very unique and looks DELICIOUS

I love traditional No Bake Cookies. They are so rich that you can only eat one or two at a time, but they are so addicting that I only make them a few times a year.

Do these need to be refrigerated? Looking for cookie and bar recipes to make for my deployed husband for Christmas, so I need something that will keep okay in transit.
