Over the weekend my son helped me make these cute and delicious clover rice krispie treats. I made these with my mom as a little girl and thought it would be fun to carry on the tradition. My mom always went all out for Saint Patrick’s Day. Everything was magically GREEN! Her secret weapon: food coloring. Little did we know! ;)

You can find natural food dies at whole food stores or Trader Joe’s. They work great!

Clover treats ...yum!

Shamrock rice krispie treats


  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 4 cups mini marshmallows (make sure they're soft)
  • 5 cups rice krispies
  • Green food coloring
  • Sprinkles (optional)


1. Melt butter over low heat in a large sauce pan. Once butter is melted add in marshmallows and continue to stir until the marshmallows have melted.
2. Add in food coloring and stir until combined.
3. Remove from heat and stir in rice krispies. Stir until the cereal is coated.
4. Place rice krispie treats in a buttered 9x13 pan. Press down on the treats with a buttered spatula.
5. For the shamrocks, place a little bit of butter around the edges of the cookie cutter, then push down on the rice krispies.
6. Place shamrocks on wax paper. Enjoy!

    I need to make this for my son’s bday in 2 weeks time, how well do they keep in warm weather? I’m live in a tropical country.. Or I could keep them in fridge would that be an option? Thank you in advance

      These are great warm weather treats! You should be good without any refrigeration. :)

    I put a little oil on the bottom of a flat drinking glass to help press the mixture into the dish, works great.
