Prep Time 2 minutes
Cook Time 3 minutes
Total Time 5 minutes
Servings 16 squares
- 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.
