We aren’t huge St. Patrick’s Day celebrators. I have a banner that hangs above our tv, and then a “kiss me I’m Irish” sign, and that’s it. But when it comes to holiday themed foods….Who doesn’t love a cute holiday themed treat? These are really adorable and your kids are going to love them! Plus they are pretty easy to make.
I made these using our Homemade Marshmallows without Corn Syrup, but you can use any marshmallows you want. If your going to make these with our homemade version, I added green dye while they were mixing up, and I didn’t let the mixture firm up. I measured 4 cups of the marshmallow mix out and used that. They turned out beautifully! We love India Tree Natural Dyes. They are made without artificial ingredients or corn syrup.
Even though these treats are called Luck of the Irish Kripsie Treats, you could easily change up the colors and name for any holiday. I love recipes like that, interchangeable from one holiday to the next. Especially when it’s a classic like krispie treats!
A few other of our favorite interchangeable holiday treats are:
If you think about it, a lot of recipes that you already make are probably perfect for any holiday with a swap of colors in the ingredients and a name change!
Luck of the Irish Rice Krispie Treats
- 8 cups rice cereal
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 4 cups marshmallows
- 1 bag of white chocolate chips
- rainbow sprinkles
- green food dye
Line a 9X13 inch dish with wax paper, set aside.
Place your rice cereal into a large bowl, set aside.
In a medium sized pot, melt your butter over medium to high heat.
Once melted add the marshmallows, and stir until they are melted.
Remove from the heat and add as much green food dye as you'd like. Stirring as you go.
Once you have the green color you are looking for, pour the melted marshmallow mix into your bowl of rice cereal.
Stirring with a large rubber spatula until all of the cereal is coated.
Pour into your prepared dish.
Using your rubber spatula, or another sheet of wax paper, press the cereal mix down flat.
Allow to cool and harden.
Once hardened, remove the treats from the dish, by picking up the wax paper.
Cut into whatever sized squares you prefer.
Melt your chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl for one minute, with the microwave on 50% power.
Stir really well.
Return to the microwave and go for another 30 seconds, on 50% power.
Stir until all the chips are melted.
Dip the bottoms of your cut treats into the white chocolate.
Place on the wax paper and sprinkle with the sprinkles.
Allow to harden before storing them in an airtight container.
