Infusing your Rice Krispie Treats with THC
Using the above recipe as a template, here are some modifications you can make to maximize your edible’s potential:
Replace Your Butter with Cannabis Butter
If you want to turn your rice crispy treats into bonafide marijuana edibles swapping out your regular butter for cannabis butter is the most basic and easy way to do so. Take extra care when heating it on the stove top, though, as you want to avoid boiling away the THC and other cannabinoids preserved within.
Replace Your Marshmallows with Cannabis Marshmallows
These sweet treats are a popular item at cannabis bakeries and easy to make at home (if you have the right equipment); for an extra hit of marijuana goodness toss these in as an ingredient along with your cannabis infused butter.
Use your Cannabis Butter Instead of Cooking Spray
Anyone who’s ever made rice krispie treats before knows the importance of ensuring that every last millimeter of your receiving pan must be greased and greased thoroughly. Though cooking spray is fast and easy any kind of oil will do, so why not use one that’s been infused? Cannabis butter is fairly standard for this type of recipe but you could also use cannabis infused olive oil or even coconut oil for this; just remember that these oils then become ingredients, and their flavor will carry over to the final treat.
Switch up Your Flavors
Though this won’t contribute to the psychoactive nature of your edibles you can mix it up and create some unique flavor combinations by using different brands/flavors of cereal or marshmallows. Nearly any puffed-rice-based cereal (such as Fruity Pebbles) make an excellent substitute for the Rice Krispies. Just think: Cannabis infused Cocoa Pebbles treats made with chocolate marshmallows and topped with a layer of dark chocolate ganache? Yes, your friends will want that recipe.
Side Note: Using a Microwave
It is possible to make this recipe with only the use of a microwave oven, if you lack access to a stove burner or saucepan for any reason. We recommend using miniature marshmallows for this technique, as they will melt more evenly in the heat of the microwave. Try to heat your cannabis butter in short, even bursts, stopping every 15-20 seconds to stir the mixture around and let it cool slightly.
Otherwise proceed with the recipe as normal, emptying your mix into a well-greased pan or casserole dish when done. Take care not to burn your hands as this mixture will likely be incredibly hot for quite some time after being removed from the microwave (or the stove top for that matter).
The Wrap Up
And there you have it. Your cannabis rice krispie treats are fully loaded with THC goodness and ready to be enjoyed. Again, it’s worth playing around with the ingredients list and trying different recipes to see exactly what combination of flavors you enjoy, but if you’re just looking for the classic rice krispie treats with a cannabis twist? Our recipe above should have you covered.

Rice krispies treat with a twist
Theses vegan cannabis-infused rice krispies treat are the perfect on-the-go snack to stay medicated all day. They are quick and easy to make!
For me, there is nothing more nostalgic than making rice crispies treat. This is one of the first recipes I learned to make when I was a kid. When my weed mentor ended up craving rice crispies the other day, I was more than happy to help her fill her belly, and mine at the same time.
What a night! We ended up eating the whole pan of rice krispies in one sitting – yes, the whole 16 pieces- and watching doctor who till wayyyy too late…. or too early depending on your point of view. Still, these rice Krispies are my go to when I need a quick edible or am craving for a crunch.

While Dandies are very similar to regular marshmallows, they do have a certain downside. Rice crispies made with Dandies dry up and harden up quicker than their non-vegan counterpart. This only means that you need to eat them quickly, but trust me, it wont be a hardship.
You should try some Dandies with my hot chocolate on a stick!
This recipe is not very sensitive to changes in oil. This means that the quantity of canna-oil can be increased if you want stronger edibles. THC distillate can also be used instead of canna-oil
What about a rice krispies without a twist AKA a sober version? Simply remove the canna-oil from the recipe. No need to replace it with anything
Always clearly label your edibles, keep them out of reach of children and pets, and don’t eat more than you can handle.
It’s not a race. Take it slowly
