Luck of the Irish Rice Krispie Treats

Joanna here from Everyday Made Fresh, and I am glad to be back again this month sharing one of our favorite St. Patrick’s Day treats, Luck of the Irish Rice Krispie Treats. 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!

Luck of the Irish Rice Krispie Treats

Ingredients:

8 cups of rice cereal
4 tablespoons butter
4 cups marshmallows
1 bag of white chocolate chips
rainbow sprinkles
green food dye

Directions:

Line a 9X13 inch dish with wax paper, set aside.
Place your rice cereal into a large bowl, set aside.
In a medium sized pot, melt your butter over medium to high heat.
Once melted add the marshmallows, and stir until they are melted.
Remove from the heat and add as much green food dye as you’d like. Stirring as you go.
Once you have the green color you are looking for, pour the melted marshmallow mix into your bowl of rice cereal.
Stir with a large rubber spatula until all of the cereal is coated.
Pour into your prepared dish.
Using your rubber spatula, or another sheet of wax paper, press the cereal mix down flat.
Allow to cool and harden.
Once hardened, remove the treats from the dish, by picking up the wax paper.
Cut into whatever size squares you prefer.
Melt your chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl for one minute, with the microwave on 50% power.
Stir really well.
Return to the microwave and go for another 30 seconds, on 50% power.
Stir until all the chips are melted.
Dip the bottoms of your cut treats into the white chocolate.

Place on the wax paper and sprinkle with the sprinkles.

Allow to harden before storing them in an airtight container.
