  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 1 package 10 oz marshmallows
  • 6 cups Rice Krispies Cereal
  • 4 drops blue food coloring
  • Green or assorted colors sprinkles
  • M&Ms for the octopus's eyes


  1. In a large saucepan, melt the butter over medium-low heat. Add the marshmallows and stir until they are completely melted. Remove from heat.
  2. Add the blue food coloring to the marshmallow mixture and stir until the color is uniform. Stir in the Rice Krispies with a wooden spoon until well coated with the blue marshmallow mixture.
  3. While the mixture is still warm (but be careful it's not too hot, especially if little ones are helping), shape the Rice Krispie mixture into ovals. Attach 8 "legs" to the base of each oval, rolling them out with your hands. As long as the mix is warm, these should attach easily.
  4. Dot each octopus's arms with green sprinkles, and add 2 M&Ms to each oval to make the eyes.
  5. Place all the octopuses on a sheet and refrigerate at least 1 hour before serving.
