Rice crispy treats are very easy to make and are an absolute hit with kids and adults alike. All you need is butter, marshmallows and crispy rice cereal. We used some food coloring for part of the recipe just for fun. We used blue but go ahead and use any color you want.
Here is what you will need for this:
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
6 cups crispy rice cereal
Food coloring if wanted
Grease a 13×9″ pan. Melt the butter in a large, heavy pot. Add the marshmallows and melt them. Work in batches if necessary. Add the food coloring.
Turn off the heat and immediately add the cereal. Mix it well. Wetting your hands go ahead and press the rice crispy treats into the pan. Don’t worry about burning yourself. The treats will cool down fast but don’t wait until they are cold because you will not be able to work with them.
Wait for the treats to harden and cut into small rectangles. Place on a platter and serve.
