If you know how to make rice krispie treats, you’ll be able to knock these out of the ballpark. Adding M&Ms is a super easy step that completely changes bother the look and taste of these treats.
I have been on a rice krispie making roll recently and these are ones that have been one of my absolute favorites. I’m not gonna lie, they didn’t stick around in our house for more than two days.
They work awesome for a little something extra without going completely over the top. If you are wanting something totally over the top, these Chocolate Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Treats are sure to hit the spot!
You only need four easy (and not too expensive) ingredients and about 30 minutes to whip these treats up.
The first thing that you’ll need to do is to get your butter and marshmallows mixed together. In order to do this, you’ll need to melt them well.
You can choose to melt them either on the stove top in a pot or in a microwave safe dish in the microwave.
Whichever way you choose, you’ll want to keep a good eye on the marshmallows. If you heat them too long, they will get too hard and your treats won’t have the right texture.
I typically use the microwave if I am short on time and use the stove if I’m not. Using the stove gives a bit more control over how fast and how much the marshmallows get melted.
After melting and mixing your butter and marshmallows together, you’ll want to add your Rice Krispies in. You don’t have to be in a huge rush, but don’t wait too long as the marshmallow mixture will start to harden.
Dump in your M&Ms! As long as your marshmallows are not piping hot, the M&Ms shouldn’t melt. Make sure to stir the M&Ms in so that they are distributed evenly.
Step Four: Enjoying your M&M Rice Krispie Treats
Take a spatula that so greased with non stick cooking spray (or you can use butter) and start spreading your mixture into a pan (which should also be greased).
You will want to be sure and spread the mixture as evenly as possible. So that your treats will be even sized.
Once you’ve let your treats cool off (around 30 minutes), you can cut them into squares and enjoy!
