This recipe was great! I used non-colored rice crispies, then as the marshmallow was melting I added red food coloring to it. I also laid them out on the pan a little thinner than instructed. Once they were dry, I cut them into heart shapes, and put two hearts together with peanut butter in the middle for a little “marshmallow sandwich”. They are adorable and taste great! Plus, they are green for St Patricks Day!
St. Patricks Day Rice Krispie Treats with Lucky Charms Marshmallows
1/4 cup of butter
4 cups of soft marshmallows
5 cups of Rice Krispie cereal
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
green food coloring (optional)
Melt butter over low heat until completely melted. Gradually add marshmallows and stir often to avoid burning them. When marshmallow/butter mixture is completely melted, add 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla and your green food coloring and mix well. Remove from heat and stir in your Rice Krispie cereal. Once mixture is mostly combined, stir in the Lucky Charm’s marshmallows. My kids and I picked them out of the Lucky Charms. If possible, store in an air tight container and they will stay softer longer! A ziplock bag works great!
