̗ Butter (2 sticks or 1 cup): Salted or unsalted will work.
̗ Marshmallows (2-20 oz bags of marshmallows, reserve 2 cups): Mini ones melt easier. If you’re using large marshmallows, melt on low heat to avoid unnecessary burning.
̗ Salt (1 teaspoon kosher salt): Balances out the sweetness from the marshmallows. If you’re using salted butter, you can leave the extra salt out.
̗ Rice Krispies (8 cups of rice cereal)
̗ Green Sprinkles (3/4 cup of green St. Patrick’s Day sprinkles)
- Melt your butter & marshmallows: Melt down your butter in a large pot. Add in the marsh mallows and cook on medium-low heat until they are melted.
- Add in your Rice Krispies: Remove marshmal low mixture from heat and add in rice krispie cereal and mix until they are incorporated.
- Sprinkles + Extra Marshmallows: Allow the mixture to cool slightly (this will help the ex tra marshmallows and sprinkles from melting into the batter), and then add the sprinkles and extra marshmallows.
4. Mold your Rice Krispie Treats: Line a sheet, pan, or rectangle cake pan with parchment paper and spread out the rice krispie mixture evenly. Top with a bit more sprinkles and cool until hardened. Remove and cut into squares.
