  1. Grease a 9x13 baking dish with butter.
  2. Melt butter slowly in a large sauce pan over medium-low heat being careful not to allow butter to brown.
  3. Mix in miniature marshmallows and allow them to melt completely.
  4. Continue to cook another 2 minutes and remove from heat.
  5. Mix green food coloring (gel or liquid, I used gel) in with marshmallow mix until desired shade is reached.
  6. Immediately mix in Rice Krispies and stir until thoroughly coated.
  7. Pour mix into prepared pan and used wax paper to push down firmly.
  8. Allow to cool for 15 minutes.
  9. Then, lightly spray a shamrock shaped cookie cutter and begin cutting out shapes.
  10. Tip: alternate directions with the cookie cutter to ensure you are able to get the most shamrocks possible.
  11. Note: If using a 9x13 baking dish you can double this recipe for a thicker Rice Krispie treat, however, I've found it's a little more difficult to use the cookie cutters to cut shapes if it's too thick.
