St. Patty’s Day Rice Krispy Treats

Here’s another simple, but festive treat for St. Patty’s Day: Rice Krispy Treats.  In my opinion, Rice Krispy Treats are underrated; they are one of the most simple treats to make and they taste amazing, so why don’t I make them more?  I’m not sure, but I know that every time I make them, they immediately make me think back to when I was a little kid.  I don’t know how long Rice Krispy treats have been around for, but they are one of those timeless treats that everyone likes to enjoy now and then.  Happy St. Patty’s Day!

  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 1 package (10 oz.) marshmallows

  2. Add cereal and stir until well coated.
  3. Using buttered spatula, evenly press mixture into a 13 x 9 x 2-inch pan coated with cooking spray.   Allow to cool.  Use a shamrock cookie cutter to press out shapes.
