Best M&M Rice Krispie Treats

By Danielle Nieman

This Rice Krispie Treat  recipe is the BEST because it calls for Salted Butter, Vanilla Extract, and of course M&M's.


- 5 Cups Of Rice Krispies Cereal -10-ounce bag of M&M's -10-ounce package of marshmallows -3 Tbsp Salted Butter -1 Tsp Vanilla Extract

Step 1:

Add the marshmallows and butter to a microwave-safe bowl. Add the bowl to the microwave and heat the marshmallows and butter in 30-second increments, stirring in between. I did three 30-second increments to get the ingredients melted, smooth, and mixed.

Step 2:

Next, add the Rice Krispies cereal to the warm mixture and stir until they’re coated and incorporated.

Step 3:

Add the cold M&M’s to the cereal treat mix and fold gently.

Step 4:

Transfer the M&M Rice Krispy Treat mix into a greased 8 x 8 pan, spreading the mix evenly. Use a spatula to press down the Rice Krispies into the bottom of the pan.

Step 5:

Allow them to sit and cool in the pan for two hours before cutting them into squares. You can cut them into 16 squares, or I did 12 larger squares.
