Shamrock Rice Krispie Treats


  • 1/4 cup margarine or butter 50 mL
  • 5 cups mini marshmallows or 40 regular 250 g pkg
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract 2 mL
  • 6 cups Rice Krispies cereal


  • Green color - 8 drops of green color OR spinach mixture (see below)
  • Spinach Mixture – using 1/2 cup of spinach and 1 tbsp of water, blend in a blender or Bullet, until you get a gorgeous green color and add to batter. Spinach offers a natural food color and it’s incredibly healthy for you. Natural options are always my first choice. Younger spinach will give you a more vibrant green, whereas the larger leaf spinach will produce a darker green color.
  • In a large saucepan over low heat, melt margarine. Add marshmallows; stir until melted and well blended. Remove from heat.
  • Stir in vanilla. Add cereal, stirring until coated.
  •  Using lightly buttered spatula, press into buttered 3.5L (13 x 9") pan. Cool. Cut into bars.
