It’s that time of year again: Rice Krispie Treat season! The Test Kitchen’s beloved, annual Rice Krispie Treat competition celebrates the completion of filming each season of America’s Test Kitchen TV. (Don’t miss our #DailyVine progression capturing moments from the television-show production process.)
17 test cooks and kitchen interns tossed their hats in the ring this morning and set high stakes in the small kitchen. This year’s twist? The mandatory ingredient of chocolate (in addition to the untouchable trinity of Rice Krispies cereal, marshmallows, and butter). After much munching in the Test Kitchen, we asked you (our fans) to cast your vote, and below are the results.
The America’s Test Kitchen judges’ award goes to: Rice Krispies Treats with Chocolate Caramel and Smoked Almond (recipe). And the online people’s choice award goes to: Fluffernutter Dacquoise (recipe).

Bonus: Watch the video below for a little blast from the past. The inaugural competition burst on the scene in 2007, coinciding with the filming of America’s Test Kitchen Season 8.
