How to Make Homemade Marshmallow Treats

Last week Be Spoke Bride put up a post called "75 Colorful Instagram Accounts That You Need In Your Life", and we were so excited to make the list! Here at Sprinkles for Breakfast, we LOVE color. It basically dictates what we do on a daily basis, because we believe baking is just more fun when its colorful! We also happen to be obsessed with instagram - we spend A LOT of time on there. It is by far our favorite social media platform because we love to see how creative and talented people are. And we also like pictures of dogs - and instagram provides a lot of pictures of dogs. So it was super cool to be recognized on this list! And we loved looking at all the other amazingly talented people on there. You should definitely check it out here. And in honor of this awesome list, we were inspired to make this week's recipe extra colorful for you guys - Confetti Rice Krispy Treats!

Do It Yourself Rice Krispy Treat Recipe

I love Rice Krispy Treats for two reasons. 1. I think they are gooey and delicious and amazing - and 2. In middle school I did my "How To" Project on them. You know that project where you teach your class "how to" do something? Yeah, well my best friend and I taught our class how to make Rice Krispy Treats. We made a tutorial video and everything (I was a total overachiever if you have't figured that out already).

So I consider myself kind of an expert when it comes to Krispy Treats. I mean I have been teaching people how to make them for over a decade! That has to count for something. They are easy to make and they require minimal ingredients! And the best part - you don't even have to bake them! And now I have found a way to make them even more awesome by adding color.

I might be the only person in the history of the world that has ever been grounded from baking. That's right. When I was a teen, it wasn't the computer, or the phone or the tv that got taken away. For me, it was the unsalted butter.

When adding additional two cups of marshmallows are they supposed to be melted as well or are you adding them in original form?

Original form!

So pretty and bright. Perfect for a "welcome, spring" treat! Thanks for the idea. (That is, IF spring ever shows up in my neck of the woods ... 70-degrees yesterday; sleet expected this afternoon!)
