Rice Crispy Squares

Cooking with Kids

Rice crispy squares make a great snack or dessert and an excellent party treat you can make with kids. Depending on the holiday you can mix in theme colored M&M's ( like brown and orange for halloween, pastel colors for Easter and red or green for Christmas). At Halloween I give them an added creepy twist with gummy worms and bugs!

Rice Crispy Squares Recipe


3 Tbsp margarine
4 cups miniature marshmallows
(or 10 oz large marshmallows, about 40)
6 cups rice crispy cereal
M&Ms (about 6oz)

Melt margarine in a large saucepan over low heat.

Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat.

Add cereal and stir until well coated. Add the candy and mix until candy is evenly mixed.

Spray a pan with non-stick cooking spray or line with waxed paper. Using a buttered spatula or waxed paper, press the mixture evenly into a 9x13" pan. Cut into squares when cool.
