No-Bake Rice Krispies Treats Hamantaschen

The perfect food gifts.

As a former chef and pastry chef I had many delicious sweet and savory treats in mind to turn into hamantaschen for this year. But I wanted to keep it simple enough to recreate in a home kitchen, yet something different to also get people excited about Purim and hamantaschen of course, too.

Rice Krispies treats on a stick are always one of the most popular items I sell from my dessert company, and so it felt only natural to turn these into a Purim delight for the whole family to enjoy.

The best part about this recipe is that there is no oozing of filling, no seams of the dough breaking, and NO BAKING. This recipe may be different than your average Rice Krispies treat since there is no fluff involved. The authentic way to make Rice Krispies treats uses real marshmallows melted with a little butter to insure a crunchy, not too sweet and absolutely delicious dessert.

To use these in your mishloach manot I recommend heading to Amazing Savings or Michael’s to get some cute treat bags to store them. Include a packet of hot chocolate mix and you have yourself an easy and delicious s’mores-themed mishloach manot.

No-Bake Rice Krispies Treats Hamantaschen

These easy Purim treats are infinitely customizable.

  • Total Time: 25 minutes
  • Yield: 24 1x

Ingredients

Units Scale
  • 6 cups Rice Krispies
  • 10 oz mini marshmallows, do not substitute fluff
  • 3 Tbsp butter or margarine
  • lollipop sticks
  • 15 oz semi-sweet chocolate (¾ of a large bar)
  • sprinkles, candy or other decorative items

Instructions

  1. Grease a large bowl and the spatula you will be using. This will help avoid too much sticking.
  2. In a microwave-safe bowl melt the butter or margarine with the marshmallows at 30-second intervals at full power. Stir after each interval. When melted, remove and pour into bowl with the Rice Krispies. Mix well until all are coated with marshmallow.
  3. Spread mixture into a greased sheet pan. Using your hands, spread mixture evenly onto pan, then press together so the Rice Krispies treats are compact. Allow to sit for several minutes at room temperature to cool.
  4. Form the Rice Krispies treat mix into triangular, hamantaschen shapes. Place lollipop stick into center.
  5. Over a double broiler, melt 15 oz semi sweet chocolate. Reserve the last ¼. Melt chocolate, stirring gently until all is melted. Take chocolate carefully off the double broiler. Be very careful not to let any water drip into chocolate. If this happens, you need to start over; chocolate “seizes” when water gets into it so the tempering process does not work.
  6. Add in the remaining chocolate. Let sit in hot chocolate for 30 seconds, then stir.
  7. Dip hamantaschen into chocolate, tap stick lightly to remove the excess chocolate. Place on parchment to let dry.
  8. After 2 -3 dipped pops, start decorating before that chocolate sets in! Use your favorite sprinkles, chocolate chips, Oreos or candy to add your own flare.

    I am a little confused as to the shaping. You press them into the sheet pan, then pick up blobs and make them into triangles? Or do you cut them into triangles? Or do you make patties and flip the edges into the center like a regular hamentasch? It seems like it would be difficult to shape them before they cooled.

      Hi Alice, you allow the mixture to set for a couple of minutes and then shape portions into triangles (no need to flip the edges). Enjoy!

Keep on Noshing
