"Sometimes I wonder about my life. I lead a small life - well, valuable, but small - and sometimes I wonder, do I do it because I like it, or because I haven't been brave?" - Kathleen Kelly (You've Got Mail)

M&M Rice Krispie Treats

1/4 c. butter (plus additional for the pan)
10 oz. bag large marshmallows
6 c. Rice Krispies Cereal
1 1/2 c. regular M&Ms candy

Grease a large pan (I used an 11x16) and set aside. In a large sauce pan, melt 1/4 cup of butter over medium heat. Once butter is melted, add the marshmallows, stirring continually until melted and smooth. Remove from the heat and stir in the Rice Krispies. Next, quickly stir in the M&Ms so the colors don't start to "bleed". With butter on your fingertips, press into the prepared pan. Allow to cool for at least and hour and then cut into 24 squares.

Notes: I'm making Randy and his band some treats to take on their week long trip to Illinois...this is one of four things I'm making. These are simple and yummy and should hold up well during their travels.

  1. These look good! I'll be sure to try this sometime. A while ago, I made some with Trix cereal AND rice crispies. They were good, but not excellent.
