Cute & Easy Spring Rice Krispy Treats Recipe

spring rice krispy treats recipe
While I do have a love/hate relationship with spring, I must admit that when the sunshine comes out, it's absolutely beautiful and all of the spring colors and pastels are my favorite. I also love flowers and shamelessly wearing as much white as possible (while simultaneously struggling not to spill any red wine on my pants or let my dogs get any dirt on me). 

I think the perfect way to get into the spring spirit is with this super easy spring recipe. I recently made these for two occasions 1) a bake sale for my job where we're currently raising money for our Relay for Life team to raise money for the American Cancer Society and 2) for my friend, Sarah, who was helping to host a bake sale for family whose house burnt down and two of the three daughters have Cystic Fibrosis, so of course I happily contributed to make some treats for these great causes.
Now, if you're anything like me, then Pinterest has failed you more than once. Even these didn't turn out how I wanted them to, but they still tasted good, and that's what counts.

(I doubled this recipe so I could make each color stand out a little more, but you can just use this recipe and either use less colors, have the colors be in thinner lines or use a smaller pan - see below.)

spring rice krispy treats recipe
3 tbsp. butter
1 package marshmallows
6 cups Rice Krispies cereal
Food coloring
Cooking spray

A deep pot
Large spoon (I used a wooden spoon and sprayed with cooking spray)
Deep dish glass pan (I used a 13x9x2 pan, but if you don't double the recipe, I'd recommend using a square pan. Instead of cutting into squares, cut into strips.)

1 | Melt the butter over low heat in a large pot
2 | Add the marshmallows

3 | Constantly stir while marshmallows melt

4 | After marshmallows have fully melted, add the cereal and remove from heat

5 | Stir until the the cereal and marshmallows are fully mixed

6 | Separate the mixture into four different bowls

7 | Use food coloring to make each bowl a different color. I did blue, yellow, pink, and green (yellow and blue)

8 | Grease your pan with either cooking spray or a stick of butter

9 | Spread each color in the pan, one layer at a time

10 | Let the treats full fully harden before cutting and serving (about an hour)

  4. These are so cute! A few years back my mom and I tried to make colored rice krispie treat eggs for Easter but they didn't turn out so well. Mixing purple and red into a circular/egg shape mostly made them look like raw meat... tasted great though!
