  • 6 c rice crispy cereal
  • 10 oz marshmallows
  • 4 tbsp butter
  • Cooking spray
  • Food coloring


  • In a large pot melt butter, then add the marshmallows.
  • Stir until marshmallows melt. Remove from heat.
  • At this point, using 4 bowls, divvy up the melted marshmallows.
  • Add a few drops of food coloring to each bowl.
  • Mix the color in well.
  • Add a little over 1 cup of rice crispy cereal into each bowl of colored marshmallows. You have to work fast because you don't want the marshmallows to harden.
  • Next put one color at a time into a sprayed (with cooking spray) 9x13 pan.
  • Pat each color down with the back of a spatula that has been sprayed with cooking spray.
  • Let harden for a bit.
