Joy Spring Crispy Cones | Fun Spring Baking Recipes | Easter Recipe

For decades, children everywhere have shared a love of crispy rice treats, made from cereal held together with an abundance of gooey marshmallow that deliciously makes your fingers feel like they’re covered in glue.

These snacks are most commonly cut into squares, but we at Joy Cone discovered a way to increase the fun and flavor of the treat while keeping those fingers from getting sticky: Put the crispy rice and marshmallow mix into a tasty, not-the-least-bit-sticky Joy Cone.  

We’ve come up with two variations on the traditional crispy rice squares; regular and fruity crispy rice. Pick one, or … even better … make them both so everyone in the whole family can feel like a child.

  • ¼ cup butter
  • 10 ounces marshmallows
