Can you freeze Rice Krispy bars without them getting yucky?

I have some Rice Krispies that I want to use up before I go on vacation...and I decided to make some Rice Krispy bars and want to freeze them for a later date when we go up to the camper. Have you ever frozen them? Do they get yucky?

They'll be just fine! The marshmallows have no water in them--all air and sugar--so you won't have to worry about anything getting soggy. That said, that also means that the stuff won't form ice inside that will make the rice krispies soggy when they're thawed. I've frozen them plenty of times. I make a batch, put tons of chocolate, peanut butter chips, toffee chips and walnuts on the top, let them harden, cut them, and then individually wrap them in plastic wrap and freeze them. If they're going to be frozen more than a week or so, I'll also put a layer of foil of them. They never really freeze that solid anyway. At least mine don't. You only have to let them sit out of the freezer for about 5 minutes, then you can eat them. I love mine on the colder side anyway.

Yes you can freeze rice krispie bars/treats if you want to eat them at a later date. Place them in the freezer in your container, put wax paper on top of the single layer, then add more treats if you want to and another layer of wax paper. Cover them tight with plastic wrap and then foil. Make sure they are wrapped tight. They should taste fine once defrosted. I haven't done this but know others have.

i wouldn't think they would be suitable in a freezer i would keep them in a fridge though you can do that with pretty much anything. The bars that you can buy in shops might say on the packet if you can freeze them or not

I have never tried to freeze Rice Krispies treats. I have no idea how freezing would affect them. Could be an interesting experiment though. Try it and then let us know what results you get.

I know this was posted years ago, but I thought I'd mention in case anyone else came across this post as I did today :) According to the Kellogg's original Rice Krispie Treats recipe, They note that the treats CAN be frozen, in layers, separated by wax paper in an airtight container. They can be stored in the freezer for up to 6 weeks. Just allow to stand at room temperature for 15 minutes before serving. Hope this helps!

I am not sure about extended periods of time, but whenever I make Rice Krispy bars I pop them in the freezer to harden up so that they are easier to cut up and they set faster. They always come out fine, but then again they are not in the freezer for more than a few hours at most.
