How could I not share something Grinch inspired this year with the new animated movie that just came out?! The Grinch is one of my all time favorite Christmas movies so I thought it would be fun to do a fun take on the classic Rice Krispie Treats by dying them green, covering them in fun sprinkles and of course red Grinch hearts.
I know I am not the only one who is brought back to their childhood when they look at these delicious treats, they were a staple in our house for the pure fact they are easy to make!
How do you make Rice Krispie Treats?
There are only a couple of steps to creating the perfect rice krispie square, and like I said before, they come together in just a few minutes so you don’t even have to wait to indulge.
- Melt margarine or butter in a microwave safe bowl
- Add in your marshmallows and stir to coat each one (they will become glossy)
- Place back in the microwave and heat in 30 second increments until your marshmallows are fully melted
- Add in rice krispies/crisp rice cereal and mix well
- Top with fun sprinkles and gently press into the mixture so they don’t fall off

Christmas Rice Krispie Treats - Grinch Style!
These Rice Krispie Treats are perfectly ooey , wonderfully crunchy and adorable to look at! They are easy to whip up with the kids and are ready in 5 minutes.
- 1/4 cup Margarine/Butter
- 5 cups Mini Marshmallows or 40 regular marshmallows
- 8-10 drops Green Food Coloring
- 1/2 tsp Vanilla
- 6 cups Rice Krispies Cereal
- Christmas Sprinkles for topping
Prepare 8" x 8" pan by lightly coating with butter to prevent your rice krispie treats from sticking later on
Using a large microwave safe bowl, melt margarine on high for 30 seconds until it is melted. Add marshmallows and toss until they are coated (they will have a glisten).
Microwave for 30 seconds, remove and stir with a wooden spoon. Continue to microwave in 30 second increments until they are smooth when stirred (about 1.5 mins)
Working quickly, add vanilla and food coloring and stir to combine. Add in cereal and stir until evenly coated. It will be super sticky so you will want a bowl of hot water and metal spoon for pressing into your pan.
Gently press into your prepared 8 x 8 pan, and use the hot metal spoon to even out any bumpy sections.
Immediately top with red and green sprinkles and hearts, lightly pressing so they stick into the bars. Allow to cool before cutting.
How perfect would these be for a school or neighborhood Christmas Party? I hope you see how fun and easy they are to make for kids and adults alike! They really are a delicious treat that EVERYONE will love! You can also customize them based on the season, like we did with our adorable Easter Bunny Rice Krispie Squares.
