What an easy recipe that can be altered for just about EVERY holiday! It's been so long since I've whipped up rice krispy treats, they are SO good! Just think: pink/red for v-day, yellow/purple for mardi gras and so forth, so forth! Thanks for posting this quick, easy, tasty treat recipe!
Easy, fun and yummy! I picked this recipe above the others as it used vanilla (something I don't normally make krispie treats with) and because of the food coloring and not sugar or other green add in as that is what I had on hand. They were great. A little over the 1/2 tsp of green made them plenty green. The vanilla added just a perfect smoothness. Used a cookie cutter in the shape of a shamrock that I had smoothed butter over to be non stick. Perfection for the St. Patrick's Day dessert. Thanks for posting Marsh D. Enjoy! ChefDLH
