Growing up, I vividly remember eagerly tearing open the shiny blue foil packaging of a Kellogg’s Rice Krispies Treat passed out as a prize for winning a Kahoot game, or as a snack after school. I was always fond of the soft, melt-in-your-mouth, gooey texture and sweetness of the treat. Though the original Rice Krispies comes in a plain off-white, beige color, it is super simple to recreate in a variety of different shades.

As Pride Month commences, I thought it would be fun to make rainbow Rice Krispies treats to serve at a Pride-themed celebration or event. They’re just as delicious as the ones from your childhood, while also bringing a pop of color and vibrancy to the party!

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 6 cups marshmallows
  • 6 cups Rice Krispies cereal
  • Food coloring (red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple)
  • Foil

Directions

  1. Melt one tablespoon of butter on low heat in a nonstick pan. 
  2. Add in one cup of marshmallows, and stir until the mixture melts into a gooey consistency. You can add in a few drops of red food coloring as you stir. 
  3. Once the butter and the marshmallows are evenly blended together, add one cup of Rice Krispies cereal. Mix the cereal in until it is evenly coated with the red butter-marshmallow blend.
  4. Grease a deep baking pan with butter, and line it with foil. Then, pour in the Rice Krispies mixture, and spread it around so that it evenly coats the pan. 
  5. Repeat steps 1 through 4 using food coloring in each of the different colors of the rainbow. In the end, you should have six different layers in the colors red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple. 
  6. Let the dish sit for at least 30 minutes.
  7. Cut into squares, and enjoy!

So there you have it! Time to get some Rice Krispies, food coloring and have a blast at your Pride celebration!
