Ingredients Needed to make St Patrick's Day Marshmallow Treats:

  • 6 cups Rice Krispies (you can always try switching it up by using a different cereal)
  • 1 10 oz pack of regular Marshmallows or 4 cups miniature marshmallows
  • 3 tablespoons Butter
  • A few drops of Green food Coloring
  • Wax Paper
  • Large microwave-safe bowl
  • Mixing Spoon

    Directions to make St Patrick's Day Marshmallow Treats:st-patricks-day-marshmallow-treats1

    • First melt the butter in the Microwave-safe Bowl in the microwave (you can use a pot on the stove, but it is hard to not burn the marshmallows when you melt them)
    • Next add the marshmallows to the bowl and melt in the microwave, stirring often to avoid burning
    • Next add in the green food coloring and mix until mostly incorporated in the melted Marshmallows
    • Add the Rice Krispies into the Marshmallow mixture and stir until Rice Krispies are completely covered
    • Now you are ready for shaping, place enough of the Rice Krispie Treats onto the wax paper to shape.  You can use a cookie cutter to press the mixture into or you can do it free hand
