Our Celebration Marble Cupcakes have been huge hit so this year we thought what other dessert could we make using these pretty Spring/Easter colors. Everyone loves Rice Krispie Treats, right? Introducing our colorful and delicious Celebration Rice Krispie Treats. So delicious and so easy to make you’ll want to make these yummy marshmallow treats over and over again.
How to make Celebration Rice Krispie Treats
You will need:
- Kellogg’s Rice Krispies Cereal
- Butter (We use Salted, Sweet Cream Butter)
- Mini Marshmallows
- Wilton Color Right Food Coloring System – Yellow
- Wilton Color Right Food Coloring System – Blue
- Wilton Color Right Food Coloring System – Pink
The base for our Celebration Rice Krispie Treats is our Best Ever Rice Krispie Treat Recipe which we have adjusted and perfected over the years until it is now absolutely the best Rice Krispie Treat recipe we have ever tasted. You can all the directions you’ll need to make these delicious treats right here.
For each batch of Rice Krispie Treat mixture we used 3 tablespoons of Butter, 3 Cups of Mini Marshmallows and 3 Cups of Rice Krispie Cereal. For detailed instructions on how to make the Rice Krispie Treat mixture, check out our Best Ever Rice Krispie Treat Recipe. We added the food coloring to the melted marshmallow mixture BEFORE adding the Rice Krispie Cereal.
Yellow = 4 drops of Yellow Wilton Color Right Food Coloring
Pink = 2 drops of Pink Wilton Color Right Food Coloring
Purple = 6 drops of Pink Wilton Color Right Food Coloring and 2 drops of Blue.
Blue = 2 drops of Blue Wilton Color Right Food Coloring
To give our Celebration Rice Krispie Treats this pretty layered effect, we made four 3 cup batches of Rice Krispie Treat mixture. For each layer we poured the Rice Krispie Treat mixture into a large cookie sheet.
Then we flatten the mixture into a row as shown above.
Each row was about 4 inches wide.
Try not to let the rows touch each other in the cookie sheet.
Once all four batches had been finished, I stacked the layers of Rice Krispie Treats.
After the Rice Krispie Treat layers had completely cooled. I cut the ombre Rice Krispie Treat loaf into individual slices with a sharp knife.
So pretty and colorful … why have boring old white Rice Krispie Treats when you can have beautiful colored treats like these.
These Celebration Rice Krispie Treats will be so lovely on our Easter dinner dessert table.
These Celebration Rice Krispie Treats would be great for Easter, Mother’s Day, a Spring Brunch or just a random Tuesday. Enjoy!
