Feature: Rainbow Rice Krispie Treats: Fun Variation of the Original Classic

Image: The Cookie Elf

Rainbow Rice Krispie Treats are a variation of the classic original made with crisp rice cereal, marshmallows, melted butter ... ….and miniature chocolate chips, which give them their colorful name. I love this cookie recipe for kids because its so easy and fun. (As an added bonus, the bars are a gluten-free cookie!)

The original RK treats are said to have been invented by Kellogg Corporation co-workers Mildred Day and Malitta Jensen in 1939, possibly inspired by an earlier recipe that used puffed wheat and molasses.

In 1996, M & M Minis were introduced to the market. And oh, how we love them. And they're a perfect twist to this easy no-bake RKT variation.

Prep time: 10 minutes
Setting time: 15-30 minutes
Makes about 20-24 bars
