Below is what you need.
6 full cups original Rice Krispies cereal
6 full cups marshmallows – 1 cup each per layer
6 full tablespoons of salted or unsalted butter
6 full tablespoons Jell-O flavors (buy in packets)
Optional – additional food coloring for brighter colors
First you will need to line a baking dish (8×8 works best) with aluminum foil, then evenly grease the foil with butter, margarine or cooking spray.
Next melt butter or margarine and 1 cup (9 count) marshmallows to a sauce pan and cook over low. Stir until the butter is no longer solid.
Add JELL-O packet and cereal one at a time, stir until evenly coated
Finally, spread the color coated cereal into the bottom of your baking pan (8×8) which has already been greased. Make sure you do this quickly and evenly with a greased spoon, your hands or a buttered spatula.
Repeat this process with each color you have chosen.
Allow enough time for the treat to sit and harden slightly together.
Note: for faster results use two sauce pans instead and add one color into each staggering the cooking.
