Happy Friday! Who doesn’t love Krispie Treats? And who doesn’t love Purple Krispie Treats? Charli and I decided to make Krispie Treats for craft today! Lots of sticky fun! It’s quite easy and I know there are lots of recipes out there. I do mine a little different. First off I don’t use a lot of butter, and I like mine not really gooey. I think changing the colors can be fun. For some reason if I change the color to something unexpected , kids tend to get much more excited about it. You can also add in lots of mix ins if you like. Enjoy!
Ingredients: 8 cups of krispie rice cereal
6 cups of mini marshmallows ( I prefer mini, I like the way they melt better)
2 .5 tbsp. of butter ( told you I only use a little)
I also sprayed a large half sheet cookie tray with nonstick cooking spray.
Melt the butter in a large non stick pot
Once melted throw in the marshmallows. I stir them until they are almost all melted, a few little lumps is fine.
Turn off the heat and add a few drops of your favorite food coloring, stir until smooth.
Pour in the cereal and stir, stir, stir…. then pour mixture onto cookie sheet. Now HELPFUL HINT!!!! I get my hands wet with cold water and spread out the treats. If my hands start sticking…. I rinse them in cold water again and keep spreading until level.
This is a great hint for when you are molding Krispie Treats also! Set aside and let cool! Another HELPFUL HINT… use a pizza cutter to cut through the Krispie Treats! Yummy and delicious! I love mine the next day, for some reason I think they taste even BETTER! Enjoy!
