Samoa Rice Krispie Treats

Snack happy with these quick and easy, Girl Scout Cookie inspired, Samoa Rice Krispie Treats. Made with dulce de leech caramel, coconut, and chocolate.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 5 minutes


Rice Krispie Treats

  • 45g (3 tbsp) unsalted butter
  • 145g (½ cup) dulce de leche
  • 285g (10oz) marshmallows
  • 125g (1¼ cup) desiccated coconut
  • 150g (6 cups) rice krispies cereal
  • 270g (1½ cups) dark (semi-sweet) chocolate chips


  • 45g (¼ cup) dark (semi-sweet) chocolate chips


  1. To make the rice krispie treats, toast the coconut in a dry frying pan/skillet until lightly brown, tossing occasionally. This step is completely optional, but really amps up the coconut flavour.
  2. Line an 8x8-inch square pan with parchment paper, ensuring you leave a parchment overlap. Set aside.
  3. Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave on low, heating in 30-second blasts until completely melted and smooth. Set aside.
  4. In a large saucepan on a medium-low heat, melt the butter with the dulce de leche. Turn the heat down and add the marshmallows and stir until completely melted.
  5. Remove from the heat and add the coconut, followed by the rice krispies. Fold the mixture with a rubber spatula until evenly coated, being gentle not to crush the rice krispies.
  6. Press the rice krispie treats evenly into the pan, using a spatula or the bottom of a glass to help. Immediately pour the melted chocolate over the top of the rice krispie treats, and smooth the chocolate over the top. Place in the refrigerator to set.
  7. Once completely set, remove from the pan and invert (chocolate side down) onto a chopping board. Cut into bars.
  8. To make the topping, melt the chocolate in the microwave in 30-second blasts as before until smooth.
  9. Pour the chocolate into a small piping bag or a zip seal bag, snip the end off and drizzle on top of each bar.
  10. Allow to set before serving.



You can use bar chocolate instead of chocolate chips if desired, but you may need to temper the chocolate first.

      Yep, totally mark your calendar next year for extra Mom lovin' and double the fun. The only thing is UK Mother's Day tends to change date yearly, but next year I should be more organised and post before the actual date! :lol:

      Thanks for stopping by, Lisa, and for pinning.

    I had no idea Mother's Day was different in other countries. Shows how international I am!! I love these bars - OMG. Pinned!

      Ha! I didn't know Mother's Day was different in other countries too until I started blogging. Funny thing is other countries have a wildly varying dates, so you could celebrate it like a million times!

      Thanks for stopping by and for pinning, Dorothy.

    so basically i think you should sell these! these are better than anything in the store. ive never seen such amazing bars!

    How do you make your RK treats look so perfect? Mine are quite..."rustic" in comparison ;) This is a delicious variation on a classic. Yum!

      Colleen, I just packed them down in the pan gently without squishing and breaking up the Rice Krispies. I chopped them into bars upside-down since there's a chocolate layer on the bottom which cracked if I chopped the right side up.

      But thanks for the 'perfect' compliment. :) And for stopping by.

    Shut the front door! These blow regular Samoas out of the water! The caramel and chocolate combo couldn't be better. Do you deliver?? :)

    1. Lisa | Sweet 2 Eat Baking March 27, 2015 @6:04 pm Reply

      LOL Mary. If iI did deliver, I'm sure that by the time they reached you from the UK, they probably wouldn't be good anymore! :lol: Le sigh.

      I wish we had the real Samoa's [and the rest] here to taste test those though. Thanks for stopping by.
