Jazz Up Your Rice Krispie Treats!

Rice Krispie treats are delicious and popular with children and some adults, for sure. But why does it have to be just Rice Krispies, and why does it have to be just white marshmallows?

I had some Rice Krispies, but not enough for this recipe, but I also had some Lucky Charms. I'm not advertising these cereals; it's just what I happened to have left over.

I also had some white mini marshmallows—but again not enough. I also had half a bag of the colored mini marshmallows. I thought, why does it have to be just the white ones?

After gathering all of my ingredients together, I decided to mix everything together—and I'm so glad I did. My granddaughter and the adults in my family loved them. These squares didn't taste a whole lot different, but there was a little different look.

So, if you have a recipe you want to make and don't have all of the exact ingredients, don't be afraid to make substitutions. It tweaks the recipe and makes it your own, and you never know if you will come up with something really great.

Ingredients

  • 3 1/2 tablespoons butter
  • 4 cups mini marshmallows, white or colored
  • 6 cups cereal (mix of Rice Krispies and Lucky Charms)

Directions

  1. Cut a piece of wax paper and line a 9" x 11" cake pan. Spray the wax paper with nonstick spray.
  2. Melt the butter in a large pan over medium heat. Add the marshmallows and stir until the marshmallows are completely melted.
  3. Take the pot with the marshmallows off of the burner and stir in the cereal until it's all coated. You can spray the large spoon you use with nonstick spray also; it helps minimize sticking.
  4. Spread the cereal-marshmallow mixture onto the wax paper-lined pan and smooth it out on top. You can either let it cool off at room temperature or put it in the refrigerator, to cool faster.
  5. After it's cooled completely, lift the wax paper by the ends to take the treats out of the pan. Let it sit for 1 minute then cut it into squares and place them in a cupcake liner for easier handling. Store them in an airtight container at room temperature.
