Ombre Green Rice Crispy Treats


  • 6 Cups Puffed Rice Cereal divided into three 2 cup portions
  • 6 Cups Miniature Marshmallows divided into three 2 cup portions
  • 6 Tablespoons Butter divided into three 2 tablespoon portions
  • 1/2 tsp McCormick Vanilla Extract
  • 1/4 tsp McCormick Peppermint Extract
  • McCormick Green Food Coloring


  • Prepare a baking sheet with a piece of parchment paper.
  • In a saucepan, combine 2 cups miniature marshmallows and 2 tablespoons butter, melt over low heat and stir until well combined. Remove from heat and add in 1/4 tsp vanilla extract and a few drops of green food coloring. This will be your lightest colored layer, so a nice light shade of green works great.
  • Combine melted mixture with two cups of puffed rice cereal and stir well.
  • Pour and press onto baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  • Repeat process for following two layers, adding in 1/4 tsp of peppermint extract in place of vanilla extract to your middle layer if desired. For each layer, you will want to create a darker shade of green with your food coloring. Press each layer on top of the previous layer.
  • Allow to cool. Cut with knife or cookie cutter as desired. Serve and enjoy!
