EASTER RICE KRISPIE TREATS
One thing I love about making these spring Rice Krispies is how easy they are to prepare. They come together in minutes and you don't need to wait that long for the treats to set and be ready to enjoy. Perfect for impatient kids and moms!
WHAT DO YOU NEED TO MAKE SPRING RICE KRISPIE TREATS?
- Mini marshmallows
- Rice Krispies cereal
- Pastel colored M&Ms
HOW DO YOU MAKE RICE KRISPIE TREATS WITH M&Ms?
Rice Krispie treats are simple to make which is why we make them often at our house.
To make them, melt butter in a large saucepan over low heat. You want the butter to be just melted, not bubbling.
Next, add mini marshmallows.
Stir with a silicone spatula until the marshmallows have melted and become incorporated with the butter.
Turn off the stove and add the Rice Krispies. Mix until all the cereal has been coated with the melted marshmallow mixture.
Add in your pastel colored M&M's and gently fold them into the Rice Krispie mix.
Spray a 13x9 pan with cooking spray. Press the mixture into the greased pan. I use a piece of wax paper to do this since it can get quite sticky. Simply place some wax paper over the pan and press down.
Press some M&Ms into the top of the Rice Krispies in the pan. Let this stand for 20 to 30 minutes before eating. I know it's hard to wait!
Slice into squares and enjoy!
