INGREDIENTS for Apple Rice Krispie Treats:
- 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter
- Two 10 oz. bags of mini marshmallows
- 10 cups Rice Krispies cereal
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 cup ready to spread frosting (I used pink cherry but you can use any color or flavor because it will be covered by red sprinkles)
- Red sprinkles
- Brown sprinkles
- Mint leaves
- Optional: cookie pop sticks
Step 1: Line a 9×13 pan with foil and spray with Pam. Set aside.
Step 2: In a large sauce pan, melt the butter over low heat.
Step 3: Once the marshmallows are melted, remove from heat and stir in the cereal and salt until well-coated.
Step 4: Using a rubber spatula (spray with Pam ), transfer the cereal mixture to prepared pan and press down firmly and evenly.
Step 5: Allow the Rice Krispies to cool in the pan completely.
Step 6: Once cooled, cut out 6 apple shapes with an apple cookie cutter.
Step 7: Apply a thin layer of ready to spread frosting on each apple shape.
Step 8: Sprinkle red sprinkles on the apple.
Step 9: Sprinkle brown sprinkles on the stem.
Step 10: Add a mint leaf by pressing firmly into the apple (the marshmallow helps it stick).
Optional: Add cookie pop sticks to make red apple Rice Krispie pops.
