This first-year Bwogger knows we all need something to lift our spirits during finals, and she has just the thing: Holiday Rice Krispie Treats using ingredients gathered strictly from John Jay and Ferris! If you’re feeling sad, desperate, and defeated, why not give them a try? There’s nothing better to help you ace that Orgo final than a sweet and crispy snack.

Disclaimer: Make sure you grab your ingredients with a meal swipe—CU Dining offers take-out boxes for you to bring back to your dorm.

This week: Holiday Rice Krispie Treats

Appliances: a microwave!


  • 2-ish not-quite-full John Jay cups of Rice Krispies
  • a good old scoop of M&Ms
  • a big old cup of marshmallow fluff
  • an optional handful of mini marshmallows
  • 3 butter pats
  • some of those random cinnamon Santa gummies that are out and about for the holidays! Yum!


  1. Microwave the marshmallow fluff and mini marshmallows and 2 of the butter pats in a bowl together for like 15 seconds. Make sure it all mixes together when you take it out and stir it. Otherwise, it might need a few seconds longer!
  2. Pour the Rice Krispies into the bowl bit by bit, until you’ve reached the desired Krispie-Treat Consistency.
  3. Use the third butter pat to grease the bowl or pan or whatever you want to put your Krispies into.
  4. Dump the Krispie mixture into the bowl or pan or whatever, and press down with your fingers so it’s, like, flatter.
  5. Sort out all of the green and red M&Ms. Unceremoniously eat the rest.
  6. Put the festive M&Ms and the red Santa gummies on top of the Treats for holiday spirit!!!!
  7. If you’ve got a fridge, feel free to tuck the Treats in there so they can cool down and set. Otherwise, just open your window and stick them on the ledge to cool–for as little or as long as you feel is right.
  8. Cut the Treats into squares or circles or reindeer shapes for serving, and have yourself a jolly little time!


Emily, a fellow Wallach-floor-six first-year, swung into the kitchen to give the Holiday Rice Krispie Treats a try. She placed one on her mouth, nodded, chewed, said, “I dig it,” nodded again, chewed some more, and added, “I’m a fan.”

But don’t just take her word for it! Give some Holiday Rice Krispie Treats a try for yourself, and let Bwog know how it goes! As always, stay tuned for more Cooking With Bwog, John Jay and Ferris Editions to get the most out of your meal plan.
