This is such a fun and cute recipe for the traditional sweet treat. The different colors of rice crispies are layered and then cut into small squares…very easy and simple.
I am sure that everyone had tried rice krispies treat at least once…if not…it is time to give this simple treat a try.
This is a very simple recipe that will please everyone in your family, not matter their age…it is simple and yummy. I simply added food coloring to give an Easter look, but feel free to make your own color/design.
This can be made ahead and store in an airtight container.
- 12 cups rice cereal
- 9 tablespoons butter
- 12 cups mini marshmallow
- Green, red and yellow food coloring
Cover a 13 x 9 x 2 inch pan or pyrex with aluminum foil and butter it or with parchment paper. Set aside.
In a large sauce pan, melt 3 tablespoons of butter over low heat. Add 4 cups of marshmallows, continue stirring until the marshmallow are all melted and add a few drops of the green food coloring.
Stir in 4 cups of rice cereal, making sure that the cereal is coated with the marshmallow mixture.
Pour the marshmallow/rice cereal in the prepared pan and press evenly throughout the pan.
Repeat the procedure by adding to the melted marshmallow red food coloring and then the yellow food coloring. Layer each colored marshmallow/rice cereal.
Once the marshmallow/rice cereal cools, remove carefully by lifting the aluminum foil or parchment paper from the pan, place in a flat surface and cut into squares.
I hope you enjoy this simple treat!
