"For colorful and more flavorful Rice Krispies treats, I add 2 or 3 teaspoons of cherry or strawberry gelatin powder to the marshmallow mixture before adding the cereal," says Brenda Sheets of Landis, North Carolina.
These sweet snacks are like the pot of gold at the end of your family's feast. With their yummy peppermint and marshmallow flavor, they'll make even those without Irish hearts happy. And they'll have the cook smiling, too, because they're so easy to assemble. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen
"These dressed-up rice crispies are a great-tasting twist on a longtime favorite," writes Nancy Baker of Boonville, Missouri. "They’re perfect for buffet tables and meals eaten on the run. Kids from 1 to 101 love them, and they’re always a huge hit no matter where or when I share them with others."
