Ingredients

  • 5 tablespoons butter
  • 6 cups mini marshmallows
  • 9 cups Rice Krispies cereal
  • red food coloring
  • yellow food coloring

Instructions

  • In large saucepan melt butter over low-medium heat. Add marshmallows and stir until melted. Immediately remove from heat.
  • Add in the Rice Krispies cereal. Stir until well coated.
  • Take about half of the Rice Krispie treats and add them in to a large mixing bowl mix in 2 drops red food color and 3 drops of yellow food coloring. Mix the cereal and the food coloring together until it becomes orange.
  • Take the remaining half and remove 1/3 of the Rice Krispie treats, just eyeball it again. Set aside in a small bowl. Take the remaining 2/3 and add in 2-3 drops of yellow, mix together until well combined and add in more food coloring if needed to get the right color of yellow.
  • Divide each of the colors into three sections.
  • Add one section of the yellow to the bottom of a 9x13 pan, press to make it into the smooth row. Add a section of the orange and press into the yellow, making a smooth even row of orange. Add in the white and press down into the orange and make it a smooth, even line. Repeat with the same pattern, yellow, orange, and white until all the Rice Krispies treats are gone.
  • Using a candy corn cookie cutter cut out candy corn Rice Krispies treats from the pan. Or cut into triangles and smooth the corners of the triangle to make it more candy corn shaped. With the remaining Rice Krispies Treats, just cut into decorative squares, or you can reshape to make more “candy corn”.
  • Serve immediately, best if served the same day. Enjoy!
