These St. Patrick’s Day Rice Krispie Treats are one of our favorite green treats! A St. Patrick’s Day twist to the traditional Rice Krispie Treat.
These treats are decked out in festive green, dipped in white chocolate and sprinkled with rainbow sprinkles! The kids love these because of the fun color, and parents love these because they are easy to make.
They would be the perfect treat for your child to take to school on St. Patrick’s Day!
I made these using our Homemade Marshmallows without Corn Syrup, but you can use any marshmallows you want.
If you’re going to make these with our homemade version, I added green dye while they were mixing up, and I didn’t let the mixture firm up. I measured 4 cups of the marshmallow mix out and used that. They turned out beautifully!
Even though these treats are called Luck of the Irish Rice Krispie Treats, you could easily change up the colors and name for any holiday. I love recipes like that, interchangeable from one holiday to the next. Especially when it’s a classic like Rice Krispie Treats!
