Rice Crispy Treats. Yum! Can you really ever go wrong making Rice Crispy Treats?
So I found this new rice crispy treat recipe that I had never seen before so I wanted to try it out. I know, you are thinking, a new recipe? No such thing! Well this recipe has an extra ingredient added in that makes normal rice crispy treats a little extra special, and even harder to resist eating the whole pan!
And of course, I couldn’t resist making them festive! So I added in green food coloring and cut them into shamrock shapes using a shamrock cookie cutter. Didn’t they turn out so cute?
Rice Crispy Treats
- ¼ cup butter (½ stick)
- 10-11 oz mini marshmallows
- 1 teaspoon vanilla (I know! Vanilla! I have never put vanilla in my rice crispy treats but oh! They are oh so yummy with the vanilla added!)
- 6 cups rice crispy cereal
- Spray 9"x13" pan with non-stick cooking spray.
- Melt butter and marshmallows in a large pan over low heat. Stir frequently.
- Remove from heat.
- Stir in vanilla and any food coloring you want to use.
- Add rice cereal. Mix well.
- Press into pan evenly.
- Let cool.
- Use a cookie cutter to cut into cute shamrock shapes (optional but don't they look so cute!)
- Try not to eat them all in one sitting!
This is so fun and looks so yummy! I love rice crispies!
Try them using Almond Extract as well, they taste like "designer" treats. Becky

Thanks for sharing. I have a couple preschoolers who have egg and nut allergies--we have a lot of rice krispie treats for special days--may need to make these!

I shouldn't be doing this browsing while my stomach is grumbling... now I want to make the oreos AND the rice krispie treats... maybe I should skip dinner and just make treats??? :)<br />thanks for linking!
Its So Very Cheri
Those are cute. I do ones that look like Christmas lights and use licorise straws for the wiring, at Christmas time.<br /><br />Thanks for posting to the party.<br /><br />My favs will be up this evening.<br /><br />Cheri http://www.itssoverycheri.com<br /><br />Have you re-signed up to follow me at the new site.

Oh, yum! Thanks for posting this. I am so trying it. Shamrocks might have to wait 'til next year though . . .

Yummy!<br /><br />You have been busy this month!
I have allways used vanilla to make them. =) I can't imagine them any other way. I make heart shape ones a lot, but I just fill the cookie cutters on a tray and work real fast so I don't have any waste.
Thanks for the recipe! I made these for my first and second graders today and they LOVED THEM! :)<br /><br /><b><a href="http://msdraffkorn.blogspot.com/" rel="nofollow"> Marvelous Multiagers!</a></b>
