Who doesn't love Rice Krispies squares?

These delicious and easy to make squares can easily be turned into delicious and festive holiday desserts. 

Here is the basic recipe for the squares, all you need to do is add food coloring! 



  • 6 tablespoons of margarine or butter
  • 6 cups of mini marshmallows
  • 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 6 cups Rice Krispies cereal



  • In a pot of steam or a saucepan of the appropriate size, melt the margarine over low heat (about 175 ° F).
  • Once the margarine is melted, add the marshmallows and stir until smooth.
  • Stir in the vanilla and mix well.
  • Add cereals and stir until fully coated.
  • Transfer to a large greased or parchment mold (see note below).
  • Using a greased spatula (or your hands), spread the mixture evenly in the pan and flatten it using a rolling pin.
  • Cool completely. (If you make the log, put the two layers one over the other and roll while it's hot.)
  • Unmold and, using a large knife, cut squares of the desired size.


TIP: The choice of mold depends on the dimensions of the final product. The quantity obtained depends on the size of the mold and the thickness of the squares. A 4 kg mix gives about 90 2 "x 2" x 2" squares.
