Jelly Bean Rice Krispie Treats
Supplies Needed: 8-10 paper cups, non-stick cooking spray and 8-10 treat sticks (NOT paper straws).
  • 3 tablespoons butter, unsalted
  • 40 regular sized marshmallows or 4 cups of mini marshmallows
  • 6 cups Rice Krispies cereal
  • 3 cups jelly beans
  • Optional:
  • 4 ounces semi sweet Bakers chocolate, melted
  • sprinkles
  • chocolate coated candies (like Sixlets)
  1. Spray 8 paper cups with non-stick cooking spray. Set these aside for now.
  2. In a large bowl, melt better in microwave.
  3. Stir in marshmallows and coat all marshmallows with butter.
  4. Place back in microwave, heat on high for one minute then remove and stir well.
  5. Place back in microwave, heat on high for an additional minute, then remove and stir well.
  6. Continue this process until marshmallows are completely melted.
  7. Stir in Rice Krispies cereal until all Rice Krispies are coated in marshmallow mixture.
  8. Stir in jelly beans.
  9. Optional: Stir in Sixlets and sprinkles.
  10. Using wet hands (wetting your hands helps from having a sticky mess), scoop mixture into each cup and press firmly on all to compact the mixture as best you can.
  11. Place a treat stick in the middle of each cup then place cups in freezer for about 30 minutes or in fridge for two hours so the Rice Krispie treats harden and hold their shape.
  12. Remove from cups and serve.
  13. Optional: Drizzle each with chocolate and let chocolate harden in freezer for about 20 additional minutes before serving.
