How To Make Candy Corn Rice Krispy Treats

  • 9 1/4 cups crispy rice cereal
  • 1- 10oz bag mini marshmallows
  • 7 tbsp butter
  • yellow & orange food coloring
  • Orange food coloring
  • non-stick cooking spray

CANDY CORN CRISPY DIRECTIONS:

  1. Spray two 8″ round cake pans with cooking spray, set aside.
  2. Divide mini marshmallows and butter into three large microwave safe bowls as follows:
    • Bowl one (will become the yellow ring): 5 cups mini marshmallows and 3 tablespoons butter
    • Bowl two (will become the orange ring): 3 1/2 cups mini marshmallows and 2 tablespoons butter
    • The third bowl (will become the white center): 2 1/2 cups mini marshmallows and 2 tablespoons butter
  3. Microwave bowl one for about 2 1/2 minutes, or until marshmallows become very puffy. Carefully remove bowl from microwave, it will be hot. Stir the marshmallow/butter mixture until smooth.
