A classic sweet snack, rice crispy treats are perfect for virtually any occasion...they don't even need an occasion though! You can shape them or cut them into shapes, or simply eat as is! This recipe is super easy to make and super tasty too!
The batch in the picture above is from my little sister's Jurassic birthday bash, so I added some color and shaped them like meteors to fit the theme. Just one example of how you can use these for your celebrations!
If you want an uneven color, like above, mix in the coloring according to the directions below, but also add a few drops to the mixture once it's out of the pot and mix it in by hand! That way some parts are brighter shades or completely different colors!
3 tbsp. coconut oil
10oz bag Dandies mini marshmallows*
4-5 cups rice cereal**
A few drops vegan food coloring (optional)
*Regular-sized marshmallows work too but are harder to melt, so I prefer using the mini ones. You can also try with some of Dandies' special flavors, but I haven't done so yet so I'm not sure what it'll be like!
**If you want a chewier crispy treat, use less cereal, and for one that's crunchier use more. It all depends on how you like them!
