Rice Krispie Treats shaped as an Apple

For our Back to School Celebration, I made these simple rice krispie treat apples. I'll tell you how. It's pretty hard. Just kidding.

You'll need...
rice krispies
red food coloring
tootsie rolls
fruit roll ups
gummy worms

I make my rice krispie treats different than everyone else- I add more butter and less cereal. So, just tweak the recipe on the bag of marshmallows. When the butter and marshmallows are melted, throw a few drops of red food coloring to it. When it's all stirred, start shaping into fist-size balls. Poke a hole in the middle with your finger, then place an umwrapped tootsie roll into it. For the leaf- I used a leaf shape pie crust cutter and cut a leaf out of the greenest fruit roll up I could find. Then, I stuck a gummy worm into the treat.

So easy, right?

  7. so fun , clever & of course yummy! I never have much success with rice krispy treats & they are supposed to be easy, haha! These would be so perfect for our apple theme - I will have to work up the courage to try them - unless you can make me a batch ;)

  12. My kids would surely love those because they like sweets. But my dentist in LA told me that I shouldn't let them eat too much sweets because it might cause cavities. Well, it's best to maintain a good oral hygience to prevent oral diseases.


Thanks for your comment. Have a great day!
