Ingredients

  • BLUE LAYER:

  • 3

    tablespoons butter

  • 6

    cups marshmallows

  • 6

    cups Rice Krispies

  • Preferred Food Coloring - The amount depends on the intensity of color. I use Wilton Gel Colors

  • WHITE LAYER:

  • 3

    tablespoons butter

  • 7

    cups marshmallows

  • 6

    cups Rice Krispies

  • RED LAYER:

  • 3

    tablespoons butter

  • 6

    cups marshmallows

  • 6

    cups Rice Krispies

Directions

BLUE LAYER Melt 3 tablespoons of butter in a large pot over medium heat. When the butter has melted add in the marshmallows and food coloring. Stir over low heat until the marshmallows have completely melted and you like the color you've achieved. Remove from heat, pour in the Rice Krispies and then layer in a 9X13-inch buttered dish (for thick layers - for thinner, easier to eat layers use a larger baking dish) Let cool. WHITE LAYER Melt 3 tablespoons of butter over medium heat. When the butter has melted add in the marshmallows and stir until melted. Add the Rice Krispies and stir until fully combined. Let them cool in the pan just a bit before pouring them on top of the blue layer. Press down with a buttered hand until the layer is even. RED LAYER Melt 3 tablespoons of butter over medium heat. Add in the marshmallows and food coloring and stir until desired color is achieved and the marshmallows are melted. Add in the Rice Krispies cereal and stir until combined. Let this cool a bit. Pour over the previous layers and pat down with a buttered hand until this layer is level.
