Great! You are back.
Worry not. This rice krispie rolls recipe isn't some spiral maze. Rather it is so simple, no bake and fuss free! I am high on sugar gobbling these treats throughout the day!
The rose and pistachio flavors are spot on in these swirly twirly treats!
I just adore pistachios and rose together. When I thought of making this rolls sighting a pistachio jello lying in my cupboard, rose was my second thought!
And here we are!
I quickly decided to combine these two heavenly flavors together in a chewy rice krispie base filled with gooey-rosy-marshmallowy filling!
Beautiful spirals will be revealed in each slice as you cut these. This is the most fun part of this recipe. Plus these smell wonderful! You can't help yourself from licking the rose filling.
How to make rice krispie treats:
These rice krispie pinwheels are the easiest recipe to make. We only need a few simple ingredients and a jelly roll pan/cookie sheet to spread our rice krispies in. Roll them, spreading rose filling. Chill for some time and cut.
- We will begin with melting mini marshmallows adding some butter in a pan. Add about 6 cups of cereal to it, once the marshmallows are melted completely.
- Press these down firmly on the cookie sheet keeping a parchment paper beneath.
- And roll these, after you spread filling as you would roll a cake roll. Wow! this is way too many rolls! But you get my point.
What can I use instead of marshmallow for Rice Krispie Treats?
Now for the filling, you may use any sturdy filling to go with these. I found the marshmallow one a bit too sweet for my taste.
Trying them again, I would most certainly pair this with some marshmallow + rose flavored butter cream frosting (not so sweet as this!).
Though this one holds itself well and doesn't ooze out. It was pretty sticky (but easy to spread) at first and it firmed up when chilled before slicing.
If you wish to try a healthier version for filling, try filling it with PB frosting or with almond butter mixed with maple syrup!
The rolls will reveal gorgeous contrasting spirals when you cut them. I know you can't wait to make these. So couldn't I!
I added a few drops of green and pink gel food colors to enhance the looks. And I suggest you do too. You've earned all that vibrancy and cheer in your life!
Do you put Rice Krispies in the fridge to cool?
Well it would certainly quicken the process up and will yield perfect swirly slices. So I would suggest to stick them in fridge to cool and firm up for a bit before slicing.

Best Rice Krispie Treat Recipe
- 4 Tbsp Butter
- 10 oz (280 Gms) Mini marshmallows
- 1 tsp Ground cardamom
- ¼ cup Roughly chopped pistachios
- 3 oz (85 Gms) Pistachio pudding and pie filling jello
- 6 Cups Crisp rice cereal
- A large pinch Salt
- Few drops Green gel food coloring (if using)
For the rose filling
- 1 ½ Cups Marshmallow fluff
- Few drops Rose extract/ 2 Tsp rose water
- Few drops Pink gel food coloring (if using)
- 2 Tbsp Dried and crushed rose petals
- ½ cup Chopped pistachios
- ¼ cup Dried rose petals
- Line a 15 x 10 x 1 inch cookie sheet/jelly roll pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
- Add butter in a pan and melt mini marshmallows on low flame, stirring occasionally. Once melted, add salt, cardamom, pistachios and jello. Mix well to combine. Next add cereal to this mixture and stir until these are well coated with melted marshmallows.
- Add food coloring and press this mixture into a lined jelly roll pan/cookie sheet. Press firmly, using a greased spatula, to avoid the mix sticking to the spatula.
- Mix crushed petals, rose extract/rose water and pink food coloring (if using) to marshmallow fluff. Spread this on the cereal. Place jelly roll pan in refrigerator for 5-10 minutes and roll tightly, starting at the short side of the sheet.
- Refrigerate the rolled log again for 30-45 minutes and cut the log into pinwheels of desired thickness using a sharp knife.
- I cut my pinwheels into 24 slices, about one inches thick. You can cut them as per the thickness you desire.
- You may use any stiff frosting like butter cream or nut butter frostings to fill these rolls. Refrigerate these for good one hour before slicing.
- Try switching rose flavor with strawberry by using a packet of freeze dried strawberries (finely ground it and mix with marshmallow fluff filling). Or even a tsp of strawberry extract would be so great here. Skip decorating with dried rose on the top if going this route.
