So, I made Rice Krispies squares and added M&Ms and Candy Corn. Hello?! This isn’t some groundbreaking recipe, it’s just a simple method to making a yummy treat with your kiddos (or to eat by yourself with your favorite TV show). To me, marshmallow treats are just a blank canvas for adding in all kinds of crazy goodness…like M&Ms and Candy Corn.
8 cups Rice Krispies Cereal
4 cups mini-marshmallows (or about 40 large marshmallows)
3 tablespoons butter
1 cup M&M candy
1 cup Candy Corn
Put all 8 cups of cereal into a large bowl. In a second bowl, add butter and microwave until melted (about 45 seconds). Add marshmallows to melted butter and microwave until they’re melted too, stirring every 45 seconds. Once butter and marshmallows are melted together, pour on top of cereal. Add in candy and mix until everything is combined. Pour mixture into a 13×9 greased baking dish. Press down. Let sit an hour, then cut into squares.
Tip: spray a spatula with Pam and use it to press the cereal into the baking dish. This will prevent the cereal from sticking to the spatula and really allow you to press the mixture in tightly.
Mix and Match any candy you like…however, I highly recommend the M&M/Candy Corn combo!
