This recipe is easy, it’s fun, and it’s great to eat! Kids love crispy marshmallow rice treats, and they love M&Ms®. Combine the two and put them on a stick, and you are a star in their eyes!
What You Need:
- 1/4 cup margarine
- 1-10 oz pkg. miniature marshmallows
- 6 cups of crisped rice cereal
- 1 cup M&Ms® candy (or Smarties in Canada)
- 12 5-oz size paper cups (wax lined works best)
- 12 ice cream sticks
What You Do:
Combine cereal and M&M’s, set aside.
In a large saucepan over medium heat, melt margarine and marshmallows together, stirring constantly.
Combine marshmallow mixture with cereal mixture and stir well.
Mix completely until all cereal is coated.
Spoon mixture into paper cups and press lightly to fill.
Insert ice cream sticks into the center of the mixture and press again lightly with fingers.
If you like, press half of the mixture into a 9×9 square baking pan and cool.
Cut into squares.
