Lucky Shamrock Rice Krispie Treats

A lucky twist on an old favorite. Shamrock Rice Krispie Treats for St. Patrick’s Day. Rice Krispie Treats are a timeless classic and are always a big hit with the kids.

You will need:

  • For one batch of RiceKrispie Treats
    • Rice Krispies 6 cups
    • Butter 3 tablespoons
    • Vanilla 1 teaspoon
    • marshmallows 1 10 oz bag (I prefer minis)
  • Green food coloring
  • Shamrock cookie cutter
  • Wax Paper
  • 13X9 pan
  • mixing bowl
  • spoon or spatulaIMG_0592

Directions:

  • Butter a 13X9 pan
  • Measure out 6 cups of Rice Krispies into a big mixing bowl.
  • Melt 3 tablespoons off butter in a sauce pan. Melt over low heat because the butter can burn if it is too high.
  • Once the butter is melted add one 10 oz package of mini marshmallows. Stir until the marshmallows are melted and the mixture¬†can be poured. Again be careful not to have the heat on too high or leave it on the heat too long because it can burn.
  • Add one teaspoon vanilla, several drops of green food coloring and stir.
  • Pour the mixture over the Rice Krispies and stir. This part can be tricky and sticky. Keep stirring until all the Rice Krispies are covered. I butter my fingers and use them to mix and shape with my hands when necessary.
  • Place the Rice Krispies into the 13X9 pan and press down into the pan.
  • You could use the Shamrock cookie cutter and cut right from the pan but I flipped them over onto waxed paper in order to thin them out a little. The cookie cutter I have is so big and I didn’t want them to be so thick.
  • Once on the waxed paper cut out the Shamrock Shapes. To help cut out the shapes I also buttered the cookie cutter. I was able to cut 7 Shamrocks out of each batch of Rice Krispie Treats. Each batch will yield different amounts depending on the size of your cookie cutter.IMG_0595
