How to Freeze Rice Krispie Treats

By LeafTV Contributor

Sweet and gooey, Rice Krispie Treats bring back childhood memories more than chocolate chip cookies. These three-ingredient bars freeze well, allowing you to make several batches to last up to six months. The next time you find yourself with a craving for one of these treats, just pull one out of the freezer. Individual wrapping of Rice Krispies takes a bit more effort than freezing the entire batch whole, but you do not have to thaw the batch just for one or two of the yummy treats.

How To Freeze Rice Krispie Treats

Step 1:

Let the Rice Krispie Treats cool in the pan for 15 minutes after preparation to set their texture.

Step 2:

Cut with a pizza cutter into 2-inch squares if not already sliced.

Step 3:

Wrap each treat in a square of wax paper and place into a resealable freezer bag.

Step 4:

Freeze the bags of wrapped treats for up to six months.

Step 5:

Enjoy your Rice Krispie Treats by thawing on the counter for 15 to 20 minutes after removing from the freezer.


  • Use a long, sharp knife if you do not have a pizza cutter, but the cutter makes straighter cuts and glides through the tray of Rice Krispie Treats easier.
