Who doesn’t love a good rice crispy treat? We do, and with St. Patrick’s Day right around the corner, we needed a little help getting in the mood. And I think we can all agree that nothing screams St. Patrick’s Day then turning these tasty treats green and adding lucky charms marshmallows. Well if we weren’t in the mood before, we definitely are now. It’s always great to find a fun project to get the whole family involved, and we think it’s why these are so popular every year. Anyone can participate and put their own spin on it.
Its as easy as melting butter, gradually adding your marshmallows until melted, and rice krispie cereal; with a few steps in between but none the less very easy. Avoid burning your marshmallows by cooking them on low heat until fully melted. We think the hardest part was separating the lucky charms from the marshmallow’s because their to fun not to eat. That and shaping these sticky devils was a fun task. But we figured out a great way. We used a glass pyrex pan to dump out our rice crispy mixture, and then sprayed a piece of parchment paper with a non stick spray and used that to press them into to pyrex pan. Once you’ve finished shaping them, very slowly peel off the parchment paper. As a result, you have perfectly shaped rice crispy treats! We ended up cutting ours round, but this method will work either way. Stay tuned for more St. Patrick’s Day themed recipes coming your way all week!
