Your Team Football Rice Krispie Treats

You can have rice krispie treats with your favorite team colors with just a little kool-aid!  The possibilities are endless!

These are red and black because we are Arkansas Razorback fans in this house.

Woo Pig Sooie!

Okay....enough cheering for my team, which did great this past weekend by the way. 

A friend gave me this great little tip of using kool-aid to help achieve the desired color and mask the taste of food coloring.

Let's get started:

Your Team Football Rice Krispie Treats
adapted from

3 tablespoons of butter
4 cups of miniature marshmallows
6 cups of rice krispies cereal
couple of pinches of desired color/flavor powdered kool-aid (I used strawberry)
food coloring as needed to achieve color (I used red)

Melt butter and marshmallows in a large pan over low heat until melted.  Remove from heat and add kool-aid and food coloring to achieve desired team color. 

Don't use too much kool-aid, the rice krispie treats will have a very strong flavor if you do.

Combine cereal and colored marshmallows in a large bowl and stir to combine. 

Let cool for 20-30 minutes or until it's easily shaped.

Spraying bowl, spoon, and hands with non-stick cooking spray will help to keep everything from sticking to you.

Shape cereal mixture into a football shape.  I rolled my into a ball and spread it out with my hands to make the shape.

Allow rice krispie treats to set. 

I used Wilton's pre-made black icing to make the stripes.  Melted white chocolate with food coloring (and kool-aid if desired) should work great too.  Spoon icing into a pastry bag with tip and apply stripes.  A sandwich bag with a small hole cut out works great too.


  1. So fun and creative and perfect for football season!

  2. I love this idea! I might have to bring these (but, in Seminole colors) to my next tailgate party! Thanks for sharing!

  3. The only thing I know about the Razorbacks is Brandon Burlsworth because we are involved with their foundation. Being in North Carolina, I'm supposed to say my blood runs Tarheel blue, but I don't much care about college ball. I'll be making my footballs blue and orange for my Chicago Bears.

  4. What a great idea for game day. It posts like this that make me so fond of your blog. I always enjoy the time I spend here. I hope you have a great day. Blessings...Mary

  5. Ha.. I knew that would do the trick.. those enchiladas work every time. :) Seriously though, thanks for following me @
    Also, you did the same to me with this football post. Love the game day idea and the fact that football season has started!
