  • 1 10 oz pkg marshmallows
  • 6 cups rice krispies
  • 3 Tbsp butter
  • 8-9 drops of green food coloring
  • 1 bag mini M&M's you will need the yellow ones from it
  • 1 can of chocolate frosting


  1. Melt butter in a sauce pan over low heat.
  2. Once melted add marshmallows and stir occasionally until melted.
  3. Place cereal into a large bowl and add marshmallow mixture.
  4. Add in food coloring.
  5. Once mixed together spread out into a greased 13X9 baking sheet.
  6. Let the mixture cool for two minutes.
  7. Spritz hands with cooking spray or grease with vegetable oil so the treats don’t stick to your hands.
  8. Mold the treats into the shape of the Grinch’s head, which looks a lot like the curved base of a violin.
  9. Press two yellow M&Ms into each treat, where the eyes should be.
  10. Place frosting in a piping bag or a resealable bag with the corner snipped off to draw the Grinch’s mouth and nose on each treat, as well as a pupil on each M&M “eye” and eyebrows on top.
  11. Draw a squiggle for the hair on top of his head.
  12. Let them harden then serve.
