a Frosted Treats With M&M's Carrot Cake

Easter is very early this year! It feels like it will be here before we know it. In our family I have 3 sisters, so we usually rotate who will host Easter dinner. This year I get to do it. It is the first time in many years that I have lived close to my family so it is going to be a fun filled family event.

So far, we have 30 people coming over for dinner. That may sound a little overwhelming for some people, but when I was growing up, our house was the family holiday house. Our home was filled with aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends and I loved it!

My mom use to prepare everything, but – she was super woman! Our Easter dinner will be  pot luck dinner. Each person will bring 2 items to share. Im going to prepare a ham and dessert.

When I was in Walmart, I did a double take when I saw M&M’s® Carrot Cake. I’m a huge fan of M&M’s®  and of Carrot Cake – so I had to buy them. First they were delicious. They taste just like you are eating a piece of carrot cake!  I thought I would use them in a recipe I plan on making for our Easter Dinner.

Frosted Treats With M&M’s® Carrot Cake

  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 package (10 oz., about 40) Marshmallows
  • 6 cups puffed rice cereal
  • 1  16oz Jar of your favorite vanilla frosting
  • 1 9.9 oz bag of M&M’s® Carrot Cake
  • 1 9.9 oz bag of Milk Chocolate M&M’s®



  1. In large saucepan melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat.
  2. Add puffed rice cereal. Stir until well coated.
  3. Using buttered spatula or wax paper  press mixture into 13 x 9 pan coated with cooking spray.
  4. Let cool a little bit and flip the treats on to a cookie sheet. Add the whole container of vanilla icing and spread. Cut into 15 squares.
  5. Now you can decorate! I used 5 orange M&M’s® Carrot Cake to make the carrot and then I used 2 green Milk Chocolate M&M’s®  to make the stem.

Serve and enjoy!

I LOVE both foods!! Carrot cake is one of my favorite cakes! I've never had it with M&Ms though. Oh, but wait these are rice krispies treats with vanilla frosting & carrot cake M&Ms. Regardless, this recipe would be a hit at any function, etc. Also easy & cheap to make.
