St. Patrick's Rice Krispies

I'm super excited to do something a little different on the blog this week. I'm dedicating the entire week to different St Patrick's Day themed posts. Today I'm sharing this fun treat idea, but come back the rest of the week for fun a fun St Patrick's Sensory Activity, book recommendations, a home decor DIY,  and a super easy bento box you can pack your kid's for lunch on St Patrick's Day.

I've never done anything like this before, and I definitely don't think you need to do every activity that I'm throwing at you this week, but hopefully you can take away something that you love that you want to do with your kids in your home. 

I found this bag of Lucky Charms Marshmallows at the store this weekend, and knew that they needed to be transformed into some rice crispies ASAP. I was originally hoping they would have more of a rainbow effect, but they turned out green with a hint of rainbow which worked out well.

These marshmallows were actually super soft and the kids loved snacking on them too, if you need a fun little treat idea for St Patrick's the marshmallows themselves would be super fun. I think it would also be fun to make normal rice crispy treats, and then stir in some of these crunchy Lucky Charm's marshmallows you can get on Amazon.

A final variation would be to just make rice crispy treats as normal, and then add green coloring into the marshmallow mixture. Super simple, and no shopping for extra ingredients. 

Ingredients:
3 tbsp butter
6 cups Rice Krispy Cereal

Directions:
Lightly spray a 9x13 dish with cooking spray. 

Microwave the marshmallows and the butter together for 1 minute and 30 seconds.

Stir the marshmallow mixture into your cereal until well combined, and then press into the baking pan. 

Allow to set for about 10 minutes before serving. 

For best cutting results, spray a knife with cooking spray so that you get clean cuts.
