Tea Rice Treat

Posted by

Who says you can’t have your tea and rice Krispy treat? Ok, no one says that but if they did they’d be wrong. I always enjoy playing around with recipes, tweaking it to see what else I can do to make things interesting so I figured, why not tea-flavored rice treat? It’s super simple to make and smells heavenly.

Not only is the flavor of tea what makes this twist unique, but I also browned the butter.


Tea Rice Treat




  • 8 tablespoons of butter
  • Tea of your choice
  • Vanilla paste
  • 10 oz bag of mini marshmallows
  • 6 cups of toasted rice cereal (or whatever kind of cereal)
  • Optional: extra marshmallows


  1. Put the 8 tablespoons of butter into a saucepan over medium heat. After it’s melted, just let it keep cooking until it turns a golden brown. You can also see my recipe for ghee, essentially, I’m doing the same thing
  2. When the butter is done, pour the butter over a strainer on top of the tea leaves. I measured out 3 teaspoons of tea (which is what I would do for a normal cup) and steep it for however long your normally would. For this tea, I chose Lady Earl Grey, which is earl grey with lavender and stepped it for 4 minutes
  3. Strain the butter/tea mixture back into the saucepan over medium/low heat, then add a splash of vanilla
  4. Add marshmallows and stir until it melts. After it’s melted turn off the stove
  5. Add the rice cereal into the saucepan with the marshmallow and stir gently to evenly coat
  6. Optional: I personally love whole mini marshmallows into the treat so add a cup or so of that
  7. Line a 9×13 baking dish with parchment paper or aluminum then spread the mixture out. The more you press down the harder it will be. I like to keep it looser so it isn’t so difficult to bite into


  • Try other teas like matcha. If you play around and find a delicious combination, let me know!
