Earth Day Rice Krispie Treats

Basically, just your basic rice krispie squares recipe with food coloring added.

1/4 cup margarine
40 regular marshmallows
1/2 tsp. vanilla
6 cups rice krispies
green and blue food coloring

Melt margarine and marshmallows over medium heat in a large pot, stir in vanilla and rice rispies.  

Divide into two bowls

Add green food coloring to one bowl and blue food coloring to the second.


 Take a scoop from the blue bowl and a scoop from the green bowl and mash them together in a ball (the earth).

Set the balls aside until completely cool.

Earth Day is Everyday...but the Official Earth Day Celebration is April 22
This tablescape from A Big deserves an A++++!
I love this so much! If I didn't love my globes so much, I would take my globe apart and re-create this tablescape!!!!

The use of my fav color turquoise and with the grape vine baskets and wreath's, I am smitten with this idea...don't be surprised if you see a re-creation in future parties!

recycle , reduce and reuse....everyday!
