Marshmallow + Fruity Pebbles = One Amazing MADE WITH HAPPY Rainbow Rice Crispy Treats Recipe
For real friends. I mean, not only are they the best rainbow rice crispy treats AHHHH-ROUND, they are RAINBOW. YES!
I don’t know about you, but for a long time, whenever I would make the traditional rice crispy treats, they were super hard and would cut up the roof of my mouth. Once I had kids, I decided that I needed a better recipe that was gooey and yummy. After some tweaking and experimenting, I have come up with a winner rice crispy treat recipe. A fun little fact about me is that when it comes to cooking, I big puffy heart creating recipes that use a whole ingredients. No left overs. When I buy cereal and get it home and it doesn’t fit in my pantry cereal container, it drives me bonkers. If ingredients call for a half a can of something, I may never make it again because 8 out of 10 times the other half ends up getting thrown out, rather than get used. Just a little quirk of mine. I hate being a waster, so many times I end up making recipes that call for a whole bag of something or container. I tell you this because this rainbow rice crispy treats recipe uses the whole bag of mini marshmallows.
