I love to use today's recipe for seasonal occasions. I've made them for Valentine's Day, Easter, Halloween, and Christmas. You can made these glorified rice krispie treats fun for anytime using the special holiday themed M&M's. Or just use the regular colored M&M's to make them any other time of the year.
These treats are so easy to make, but are extra special with Frosted Flakes (or Corn Flakes), peanuts, and M&M's.
Here's what you'll need:
1 1/2 cubes (3/4 C.) margarine
1 (16 oz.) package of mini marshmallows
6 C. Rice Krispies
4 C. Frosted Flakes (or Corn Flakes)
1 (12 oz.) bottle roasted peanuts (1 1/2 C.)
1 (8 oz.) package M&M's
Melt the margarine in a large pot over Medium-Low heat. Add the marshmallows and keep stirring until smooth and melted.
Remove from the heat and add the Rice Krispies, Frosted Flakes, and peanuts, stirring until evenly coated.
Lightly grease a large rimmed cookie sheet or jelly roll pan. Gently fold in the M&M's.
Spread onto the cookie sheet. Lightly grease your hands and press the treats evenly throughout the pan.
Allow to cool. Cover to keep moist.
