Candy Corn Rice Krispie Treats Ingredients -



Select a 10″ round container/pan (I used my 10″ cast iron skillet), and line it with wax paper.

For the first layer, in a microwave safe bowl large enough to hold both the melted marshmallows and rice krispies, pour in 1 cup of marshmallows, and top with a 1/2 tbsp of butter.

Marshmallows topped with Butter -

Place into the microwave and heat in 30 second intervals, stirring in between each, until the marshmallows have melted.

Melted Marshmallows -

Stir in a cup of rice krispies until coated, place it in the center of your 10″ round, and form a circle (wet your hands with water to keep the mixture from sticking to your hands as you form the circle).

Rice Krispie Circle Mold -

Place it in fridge until you’re ready for the next layer.

For the next layer add in 2 cups of marshmallows into your microwave safe bowl and top with 1 1/2 tbsp of butter.  Once melted, stir in a few drops of red food coloring, followed by several more drops of yellow food coloring to create your favorite shade of orange (I used 4 red drops and 12 yellow drops to create my shade of orange).
