Matcha rice krispie treats are marshmallow and rice krispie cereal treats mixed with matcha green tea powder to create a grown-up version of marshmallow rice krispie treats. The matcha powder has caffeine, so we don’t recommend this dessert for children, or those who may be sensitive to caffeine.

The primary ingredient of this recipe is Kellogg’s Rice Krispies cereal, available for sale throughout most grocery stores in the United States, as well as some international locations. Many other brands of puffed rice cereal are similar to Rice Krispies, and any brand that you can get a hold of will work.

The classic recipe for Rice Krispie marshmallow treats, by Kellogg, is available on their website. We used this recipe as the foundation for making these matcha rice krispie treats and simply added culinary grade matcha powder, which can be found for sale at most Japanese and Asian grocery stores. It is likely also available for sale through online retailers.

Ingredients

  • Canola oil cooking spray, for greasing

  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter

  • 1 (10.5-ounce) bag mini marshmallows

  • 6 cups crispy rice cereal

  • 1 tablespoon culinary grade matcha powder, or to taste

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Spray a 10” by 13” baking dish with canola oil cooking spray to prevent the krispie treats from sticking to the pan.

  3. In a large pot, melt unsalted butter over low to medium heat.

  4. Add marshmallows and gently stir until melted. 

  5. Add matcha powder, mix until incorporated and turn off heat.

  6. Quickly add rice krispies cereal to the melted matcha marshmallows mixture and stir until coated.

  7. Transfer the matcha rice krispies mixture to the coated baking dish, gently and evenly spread out the mixture into the pan and allow it to cool.

  8. Once it’s cool, spray a serrated knife or ceramic knife with canola oil cooking spray and cut the matcha rice krispies into desired size squares.

  9. Serve and enjoy!

Tips

  • Substitute Rice Krispies cereal with any puffed rice cereal you can get your hands on.
  • Adjust the amount of matcha powder used in the recipe depending on how strong you prefer the matcha flavor to be. 1 tablespoon (or 3 teaspoons) yields good flavor and balance between the sweetness of the marshmallows and the bitterness of the matcha powder.
  • Any butter substitute such as margarine or other butter substitutes that can be used for baking may be used in this recipe.
  • While not necessary, we use a large cast iron and enamel-coated pot that we spray with cooking oil to prevent sticking and minimize clean up.
