St Patricks Day Rice Crispies

Happy Green day!

This is a very simple variation of the traditional rice crispy treat.

3 Tbsp butter or margarine
1 package (15 oz) miniature marshmallows (the equivalent of 4 cups)
1/4 c brown sugar
green food color
1/2 c miniature green M&Ms
6 c rice crispies cereal

Butter 13×9 pan.  In large saucepan melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat.

Mix in brown sugar and green food color to desired color (I used 1 tsp for the color in the picture).  Add rice crispies cereal. Stir until well coated.  Add M&Ms as last step, barely stirring to incorporate so they don’t completely melt.  They will create a chocolate marble in places.

Dump mixture into pan.  Using either a spatula or buttered hands, press evenly into pan.  Cool and cut into squares.  Can use cookie cutters if desired.

In microwave-safe bowl heat butter and marshmallows on HIGH for 3 minutes, stirring after 2 minutes. Stir until smooth. Follow above steps. Microwave cooking times may vary.
