Springtime Rice Krispie Treat Cupcakes




  • 1/4 cup margarine or butter
  • 40 large marshmallows or 4 cups of mini marshmallows
  • 5 cups Krispie cereal (can use regular, cocoa or even fruity, as I did)


  • 1/2 cup solid vegetable shortening
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
  • 1 tsp clear vanilla extract
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 23 Tbs milk


  1. Melt marshmallows and margarine/butter in the microwave.
  2. Stir and immediately add in the cereal.
  3. Mix until combined.
  4. Press into greased muffin tins (makes around 15 – 18).
  5. Place in the refrigerator while making the icing.
  6. Cream the shortening and butter until light and fluffy.
  7. Add in the vanilla and mix well.
  8. Gradually add the sugar and make sure it is well blended (will appear dry at this point).
  9. Add in milk, 1 Tbs at a time until it is light and fluffy.
  10. Pull the treats out of the refrigerator and remove from the pan.
  11. Pipe icing onto them using a frosting bag or a knife.
  12. Serve and enjoy!!
