Easter M&M Rice Krispie Treats

Updated on November 15, 2015

Everybody Loves Rice Cereal Treats!

Here's an idea to spruce up Rice Krispie Treats for Easter - mix in some pretty pastel colored M&M's to match the holiday. You can do this with any holiday bag of M&M's. I especially like Easter because the pastel mix is beautiful. There's a trick to making sure the M&M's don't break. See the recipe below.


Recipe for Rice Krispie Treats with M&M's

Each and every box of Kellogg's Rice Krispies has the well loved Rice Kripie Treats recipe printed on the inside of the box. During a holiday season you might also see a special version of the original recipe on the outside of the box.

Here's the standard recipe with the M&M's added:

3 Tablespoons butter (or margarine)

4 cups miniature marshmallows (or one 10 ounce Pkg regular size)

6 cups Rice Krispies (or other crisp rice cereal)

1/2 to 3/4 cups Pastel Easter M&M's

Melt butter in large pan over low heat. Add marshmallows to melted butter and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat. Add crisp rice cereal and mix until thoroughly combined.

Here's the trick: Add M&M's now - after you have mixed everything together! The cereal should be completely mixed into the melted marshmallows and still be warm and gooey. Now sprinkle the M&M's over the mixture and gently fold them in. You don't want to break the M&M's if possible. Turn the mixture over with your spoon or spatula several times until they are incorportated. Press into greased dish (grease hands so nothing sticks). If you want to add any more M&M's to the top (so more are visible), now is the time! Work quickly while the mixture is still pliable and push more of the M&M's into the top of the treats. When the mixture cools it will be too late and the M&M's will not stick.

The Easter Mix of M&Ms has 5 Colors: Blue, Yellow, Lavender, Green and Pink

One Broke! Oooh Try to Avoid This

In the batch I just made, I did break one M&M. You can see a picture of it here. The little guy is all mashed up. Blend them in as gently as possible to avoid this.
