Ingredients

  • 4 tablespoons butter , melted
  • 10 ounce bag of large marshmallows or 4 cups mini marshmallows
  • 6 cups Rice Krispies cereal
  • 1 cup pastel colored M&Ms
  • 1/2 cup colored sprinkles

Instructions

  • Start by lining a 9 x 13 pan with parchment paper and set aside.
  • Add butter and marshmallows to a large saucepan and over medium heat, stir continuously and melt until smooth and creamy.
  • Stir in the rice cereal until completely coated. Wait 1-2 minutes then stir in the sprinkles and M&Ms.
  • Turn your Rice Krispies mixture out into your prepared pan. Using either a 2nd piece of parchment paper or after spraying your hands with non-stick spray, gently press down on the cereal to fill in your pan. Let cool at least 30 minutes, cut into squares and serve.

Notes

  • Be sure to keep stirring your marshmallow mixture while it is melting to make sure it doesn't burn.
  • You want to wait 1-2 minutes after adding your cereal to the marshmallows to add in your M&Ms and sprinkles. It helps keep the color vibrant.
  • Don't press down too hard when making your cereal bars. Your Rice Krispies Treats may come out hard and since your M&Ms are warm, they may break open.
  • You can use parchment paper, wax paper or even just coating your hands with butter or non-stick spray when pressing the cereal into the pan. These ideas help the cereal from sticking while you form your bars.
  • Don't have marshmallows on hand but craving Rice Krispies bars? A jar (7 oz.) marshmallow crème can be substituted for marshmallows.
  • If you are using regular sized marshmallows, use a 10 oz package. Have mini marshmallows? Use four cups instead. Perfect either way!
