This recipe is really easy to make. If you know how to make original Rice Krispie Treats, then this will be a breeze for you. The only extra ingredient you’re going to need is your favorite choice of sprinkles.
You can follow the directions as written below or if you want to add a little fun and variety to the recipe, you can make the Rice Krispie Treats whatever color you want.

Let’s make these treats!
As always, we start out melting butter in a large stock pot. Place the pot on your stove top and set the heat to medium. While your butter is melting, pulled out a large bag of Jet Puff Marshmallows. Dump the marshmallows directly into the pot once the butter has mostly melted.
Use a spatula to stir the marshmallows into the butter until they’re both thoroughly mixed together. When you’re finished, it should look like you have a pot full of liquid marshmallows.
Now the measurements for this part can vary depending on your own personal taste. Since sprinkles are not going to really affect the flavor of the Rice Krispie Treat, you can really just base the amount that you add in on marshmallow consistency and how much color you want.
However much you decide, pour those sprinkles into the melted marshmallows and stir them until completely mixed. Reduce your heat to low and move on to Step 2.
Take out your Rice Krispies cereal and add 6 measured cups into the melted marshmallows. Stir the cereal into the batter until thoroughly mixed. If, at this time, you want to add more sprinkles, feel free to do so.
Scoop all of your batter into the pan. Use our spatula to level out the mixture until it is flat in the bottom of the pan. Set your pan to the side to cool for about half an hour.
Once you’re ready to cut your treats, make sure they are sufficiently cooled and take out a sharp knife. You will want to cut 2 x 2 inch squares. You should end up with around 16 or so treats.
Add more sprinkles to the top, if you like, then serve and enjoy!
