Apple shaped rice crispy treats ...the perfect back to school treat! These would be fun to make for the kids on their first day of school and to pass out to their teachers. These would also be fun for a fall get together.
1/2cupmini pretzels and/or tootsie rolls cut in half
0.67oz Green decorating frosting for decorating (1 tube)
red and/or green food coloring
Lay out a large piece of wax paper and set aside. Place the decorating supplies near by.
Combine the butter and marshmallows in a large non-stick pot over low heat. Leave on the heat until melted, stirring occasionally. Once the marshmallows have melted, remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla and food coloring. Then stir in the rice cereal and stir until combined. Allow to cool slightly.
Once the cereal has cooled, butter your hands and then shape into an apple. Place onto the wax paper and add a mini pretzel or tootsie roll to the top. Then add a little green frosting to make the leaves.
