Marshmallow treats, it’s time to grow up and meet your Maker(’s Mark)–with bourbon and a touch of cinnamon. I read online about making Rice Whisky Treats and couldn’t resist giving this idea a try. I adjusted the original marshmallow treats recipe to add an extra 1/2 cup of Krispies to compensate for the additional liquid. And is this not the cutest nip anywhere, ever?! Cheers and let’s get on it! These are perfect fall snickity-snacks!


5 ½ cups Rice Krispies
10-oz. bag marshmallows
½ stick (¼ cup) salted butter
2 tablespoons Maker’s Mark bourbon
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
salt to taste

Generously butter an 8 x 8″ baking dish. In a sauce pan, melt butter, stir in cinnamon and marshmallows. When marshmallows have melted completely, remove from heat and quickly stir in bourbon and a sprinkle of salt, then add the Rice Krispies and stir and stir and stir until evenly combined.

Press treats into buttered dish and add a sprinkle of finishing salt over the top if you like (oh, I really like!).

"For amber waves of grain, all buttered, bourboned and marshmallowed up and pressed into a dish for snacking. God bless America!"

Cut treats into squares with a sharp knife.

Tower of treats--ready to share!
