  1. 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!
  2. this looks so yummy
  3. A really cute and clever St. Pat's Day idea. My kids loved them.
  4. 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
  5. Perfect St. Paddy's Day treats for the kids. The green is genius and these were ready in 5 minutes (we dipped in before they were cool) Made for a festive St. Pat's weekend. Thanks for the great idea!
