M&M RICE KRISPIE TREATS
Rice Krispie treats take me back to my childhood, because they were my absolute favorite and having them in the house was a huge treat. Let's just say they didn't last long, because we ate them like crazy. This was my very first time making them homemade, (instead of just buying them in a box at the store) so I was excited to see how they'd turn out, and they taste just as good as store bought! I had a little fun with them and decided to add some M&M's on top because I wanted to give them a pop of color. These fun treats are perfect for the summertime and days spent with friends because they're easy to eat and make! A few days ago I went to a pool party with all my girlfriends and I made these, and I have to admit they were a hit! Enjoy making!
RICE KRISPIE TREATS
servings- approx. 25-30 cut square bars
1 box of rice krispies
1 bag of marshmallows
1 stick of butter
1 bag of M&M's
1. To begin making these yummy treats, you'll need a big pan to start melting the marshmallows. I've seen people put them in the microwave and melt them that way, but I find doing it over the stove much easier and more controllable. Before you melt the marshmallows, first take that one stick of butter and melt it completely and then pour in the marshmallows.
2. Once the marshmallows are soft and very melted, pour in the rice krispies and begin to stir it all together. To make the stirring easier and less messy only pour a little but of the cereal in the pan at a time, until it's all mixed together.
3. Take a dish or pan and put add butter all around the edges so that it won't stick to the pan. Begin to place the rice krispies into the dish and apply butter all over your hands so that your able to firmly place all the rice krispies into the pan without sticking to your fingers.
4. Lastly, add in the M&M candy and push them into the rice krispies to that they will stay in place. You can use pretty much any candy, or chocolate for this step, but like I said I wanted a pop of color, plus you cannot beat M&M's! You can also drizzle some chocolate, or caramel syrup over the top. Once you made your rice krispie treat your free to add anything you want!
