  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 package (10 oz) mini marshmallows
  • 1 package (3.4 oz) instant banana pudding mix
  • 6 cups Rice Krispies cereal
  • 1 cup crushed vanilla wafer cookies
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips (optional)
  • 1/2 cup banana chips (optional, for garnish)

Optional Additions:

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup mini marshmallows for extra texture


  1. Prepare the Pan:
  • Grease a 9×13-inch baking dish with butter or non-stick cooking spray and set aside.
  1. Melt the Butter and Marshmallows:
  • In a large saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat.
  • Add the mini marshmallows and stir continuously until they are completely melted and smooth.
  1. Add Banana Flavor:
  • Remove the saucepan from heat and stir in the instant banana pudding mix. Mix until fully incorporated. If using, add the vanilla extract.
  1. Combine with Cereal:
  • Add the Rice Krispies cereal and crushed vanilla wafer cookies to the marshmallow mixture. Stir until all the cereal is evenly coated with the marshmallow mixture. If using, add the extra mini marshmallows and white chocolate chips for added texture and flavor.
  1. Press into Pan:
  • Pour the mixture into the prepared baking dish. Use a spatula or wax paper to press the mixture down evenly and firmly.
  1. Cool and Set:
  • Allow the treats to cool completely in the pan. This usually takes about 30 minutes to 1 hour at room temperature.
  1. Slice and Serve:
  • Once set, cut the Banana Pudding Rice Krispie Treats into squares or rectangles and serve. If using, garnish with banana chips.

Tips for Success:

  • Use fresh marshmallows for the best texture and easiest melting.
  • To prevent sticking, lightly grease your hands or the spatula with butter when pressing the mixture into the pan.
  • Store the treats in an airtight container to keep them fresh and chewy.
