This recipe/idea is totally not from me. I bet a lot of people have done it different ways, but the BF brought this idea to my attention and we decided to go for it- because of course! They are delicious. And super easy! Let me show you:
|Your super simple arsenal- cereal, butter, marshmallows, and flavoring.|
|Melt your butter then add in the flavoring packet.|
|You'll get nice blue butter like this!|
|Add your marshmallows and microwave while watching closely, just until they are all puffy and stir-able.|
|Quickly, stir together your marshmallows and butter mixture.|
|Add your cereal (I find it useful to measure it out ahead of time so the marshmallow mixture does not harden while I am measuring cups out).|
|Here they are- your blue cotton candy rice krispies. You could even ice them if you wanted!|
Cotton Candy Rice Krispie Treats
-3 tablespoons butter
-1 packet cotton candy flavored icing mix
-1 package marshmallows (about 40 large ones or the equivalent in mini ones)
-6 cups crisp rice cereal
Melt your butter, then stir in the icing packet.
Pour in your marshmallows and microwave until all soft and puffy. Stir together well.
Stir in cereal well and quickly.
Pat into a greased 9x13’’ pan. (It really helps to wet your hands to pat them out flat if you don't want to use a spatula- keeps your hands from sticking!)
Chill in the refrigerator for at least an hour or two to firm up!
|The color is hard to capture, but these are pretty fun treats! Aren't they lovely and springy, too? Yum!|
