A gem-filled take on the classic cereal treat.

All the good pirates follow their nose to the buried treasure. This buttery-smelling, sweet treat sensation is no fool’s gold. Want the loot? We mapped it out for you. 

What You’ll Need

  • Rice Krispies
  • Blue food dye
  • Marshmallows
  • Butter
  • Dried fruit (pineapple chunks look like gold!) 
  • Icing, gold sprinkles, decorative candies

How to Create:

Step 1:  Microwave 3 Tbsp. butter for 30 seconds at a time until fully melted. Transfer to a large mixing bowl.

Step 2: Add a bag of marshmallows to the bowl, coat with butter, and microwave for 30 seconds more.

Step 3: Add food coloring and stir.

Step 4: In another large bowl, pour in 6 c. of Rice Krispies. Pour marshmallow mixture on top.

Step 5: Grease a 9×13 inch pan very well before pouring the cereal mixture into it.
