Festive Rice Crispie Squares w/M&M's

Rice Crispie Treats (Marshmallow Treats)

1 stick butter
13 oz. jar Marshmallow Cream
8 cups rice crispies
1 1/2 cups holiday M&M's (optional)*

Melt butter in large saucepan over low heat. Add Marshmallow Cream and cook over low heat about 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat.

Add crispy rice cereal and M&M's. Stir until well coated.

Using buttered spatula or waxed paper, press mixture evenly into buttered 13 x 9 x 2-inch pan (this makes thick treats - for thinner ones, either half the recipe or split it up between 2 pans).

Cut into squares when cool.

*I used red & green Christmas M&M's for a festive treat! They make different colors at Halloween and Easter too. Maybe other holidays as well, I'm not sure
