As much as I’m really not ready for it, fall is just around the corner and that means Fall Treats like these Candy Corn Cereal Treats. I really do love fall and all the things that come with it!
Candy Corn Cereal Treats
- 6 1/2 cup Krispy Rice Cereal
- 3 tbsp Butter
- 10.5 oz Marshmallows
- Red Food Coloring
- Yellow Food Coloring
- Wilton White White Icing Color (optional)
Lightly spray a pie pan with non stick spray.
In a medium saucepan, melt the butter over low heat. Add the marshmallows and stir until completely melted.
Transfer about half the marshmallow mixture to a large mixing bowl. Add about 10 drops of yellow food coloring and mix well. Add 3 cups cereal and mix well.
Butter your hands or use wax paper to press the mixture firmly into a ring around the outer edge of the pan.
Transfer most (about 4/5) of the remaining marshmallow mixture to a large mixing bowl. Add about 10 drops of yellow and 6 drops or red food coloring and mix well. Add 2 1/2 cups cereal and mix well.
Butter your hands or use wax paper to press the mixture firmly against the yellow ring around the outer edge of the pan leaving an empty circle in the middle.
If you desire, add about 6 drops of white icing color to the marshamallow mixture remaining in the saucepan and mix well. Add 1 cup cereal and mix well. The plain cereal treats will look just fine if you choose not to use the icing color.
Butter your hands or use wax paper to press the mixture firmly against the orange ring into the empty spot in the middle.
Allow to cool completely.
Lift out in one piece and cut into triangular pieces. You can also cut in the pan.
