People Are Making Potato Chip Marshmallow Squares—and They’re Perfectly Sweet and Salty
You've heard of Rice Krispies treats. But have you tried a Ruffles krispie treat?
It’s almost summer, so you know we’re getting ready for s’mores weather. We’ve got the pantry stocked with cookies ‘n creme stuffed marshmallows, along with graham crackers and plenty of chocolate. Of course, it’s not a summer BBQ without potato chips, so we’d say with these two in hand, you’re all set for sunny weather.
While we definitely love both of these, we’ve never thought about combining them. But it turns out someone did—and a good thing too, because it results in the perfect sweet n’salty 4-ingredient dessert.
How to Make Ruffles Krispie Treats
This combination makes a decadent snack that gives you all the crunch and sticky sweetness of a Rice Krispies treat with just enough salt to keep it from being overwhelming. This recipe comes to us from TikTok user @sweetafternoon, whose first video became so popular on the video platform, she ended up posting the recipe. It’s super simple to follow.
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1 package (10 ounces) mini marshmallows
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 cups Ruffles potato chips
Note that we estimated the amounts here—but it should be pretty close to the video!

- Line a baking pan with parchment paper.
- Melt the butter in a nonstick skillet, then add marshmallows and stir.
- Add a few drops of vanilla extract.
- Stir in the Ruffles chips, making sure they’re coated in the marshmallow mixture. (Yum!)
- Pour the mixture into the prepared baking pan and let to cool, then cut into squares.
Voila! You’ve got your Ruffles krispie treats, with crunchy chips, soft, gooey marshmallow, and of course, plenty of sweet n’ salty deliciousness.
You Can Make Them Even Better
Of course, you don’t have to stop at the original recipe. Plenty of commenters said they added chocolate, so you could make this recipe with original Stuffed Puffs and get both marshmallow and chocolate in one go! People have also tried making them colorful by using Peeps marshmallows, and the recipe creator even hinted she might try them with BBQ or spicy chips.
