how to make the best Rice Krispie treats!
Begin with melting your stick of salted butter and a 10 oz. bag of marshmallows in a deep pan. Once they are melted together, turn off the heat and add your cereal. Stir well to combine it all.
On a sheet pan, spray it with some non-stick spray and pour your package of red, white and blue M&M’s and spread them out evenly.
Once your cereal is combined with the marshmallows and butter, pour it over the top of your M&M’s. I like to take either wet hands to press it down or place a piece of parchment paper over the mixture and use a measuring cup to press it down. Allow our mixture to set until it is cool.
Turn it over onto a sheet of parchment paper and cut it up into squares and serve. They’re so fun, especially for the Fourth of July.
