Easy Spring Fruit and Rice Krispies Treat Kabobs are a fun and festive twist on the marshmallow treat. The perfect sweet treat for any celebration.
Welcome to #SpringSweetsWeek 2019 hosted by Heather from Hezzi-D’s Books and Cooks and Christie from A Kitchen Hoor’s Adventures! What better way to celebrate the coming of spring than with food and a week of sweet recipes?
30 bloggers from around the country have come together to share over 100 sweet recipes perfect for spring! Get ready to ditch your hats, coats, and snow boots and get ready for some delicious sweet treats like cupcakes, cookies, sweet breads, and cocktails! Please check out the other sweet recipes linked up below this recipe.
I don’t know about you, but I am so glad Spring has sprung in my area. While we live in the south and rarely get snow or extreme cold temperatures, we do have wacky weather. We can have Spring, Winter, and Summer temperatures in the same week and even in the same day in the “winter” season.
I love making these Fruit and Rice Krispies Treat Kabobs for snacking on or to take to springtime celebrations with family and friends. If you’ve ever made the rice cereal treats before, you know you need a large pot to mix the cereal into the melted marshmallows.
This Swiss Diamond Cast Iron Round Casserole is the perfect vessel to make the treats in. It’s big – it’s a 6.9 quart non-stick pot. Great to cook on top of the stove and in the oven. I just love the sapphire blue color, too.
I was super excited to receive this piece of cookware from Swiss Diamond in conjunction with #SpringSweetsWeek and while I was thinking of how delicious a pot roast would be in this, I also was thinking to use it for something sweet. Already knew Spring Fruit and Rice Krispies Treat Kabobs were going to happen.
The recipe couldn’t be simpler – slice up your favorite fruits and make a batch of the cereal treats. I used these cute cookie cutters to cut the fruit and cereal treats into shapes.
Tips for this Recipe:
This recipe is truly a cinch. Fresh fruit works best.
Be sure to let the crispy rice treats set for at least an hour before cutting into shapes. I found it was easier to remove the whole block of cereal treats from the pan and onto a cutting board.
The wooden skewers come in different sizes, use the size you wish.
The kabobs are best served fresh, but if you have to refrigerate them prior to serving, allow them to come to room temperature first. The cereal treats will be softer this way.
Remember to use a pot large enough to mix everything together.

These rice krispie kabobs are seriously adorable! Just when I thought rice krispies couldn’t get any better, you added fresh fruit. Yum!

It’s been such a long time since I made rice krispie treats! Now I’m craving them. Love that you paired them with fruit in these kabobs. It’s all about balance, right! 😉
I agree…balance! A little sweet with the healthy
I love this presentation! My son’s school is nut free so these are a fantastic option.
This is such a cute idea! I love that pan too. What a great way to serve fruit with the treats!

I love the idea of combining fruit and rice krispies treats. Brilliant.
What a fun treat to have a rice krispie treat as a surprise on a fruit kabob. My kids would love it.
I’m slowly replacing all my cookware with Swiss Diamond, I just love how easy the clean up is! Great idea to combine Rice Krispie treats with fruit, my little niece will love these.
Jolene, I’m ready to do the same!
I am sorry I missed out on this event, but I really couldn’t have done one more thing this Spring. Remind me next year, PLEASE!
This recipe would be so much fun for all of the spring parties we have this year. Cut the Krispies in a flower shape with pineapple for the luau, egg shaped with strawberries for Easter, etc….
I love your ideas Audrey! I promise to remind you next year, it’s been a fun event!

These are so cute and adorable. I know that my boys would absolutely love to munch on these!
I told my husband I was going to make these the next time the grandkids stay overnight, but I’m secretly wanting to make them for me! I’m in love with that Swiss Diamond pot too, such a pretty blue.
April, I hear ya! My kids are grown but I said I was making them for the kids, too. hehe
I love the idea of a krispie treat mixed with the fresh fruit. How creative.

Love these for picnics and BBQs – part sweet treat but still healthy with those big chunks of fresh fruit.

I have the same pan and it has quickly become my favorite child! speaking of children, mine would absolutely LOVE these kabobs! How fun and easy for every party!
