One thing on our fall to do list is to visit an apple orchard I think a few days before we go will make some of these up to help build the excitement. What a great treat and I think they look so cool.
3 tablespoons butter
4 cups mini marshmallows
6 cups Rice Krispies cereal
10 drops red food coloring
6-8 pretzel sticks
1 green fruit rollup (I used green sour “Rip Rolls”)
Ice cream scoop
Knife or cooking scissors
Step 1: Melt butter in a sauce pan over low heat. Add marshmallows and mix until melted.
Step 2: Remove from heat and stir in Rice Krispies. Add 10 drops of red food coloring. Mix until ingredients are well combined.
Step 3: Lightly spray an ice cream scoop with cooking spray and use it to scoop up Rice Krispies mixture. Place scoops on a piece of parchment paper. Tip: You can lightly spray your hands with cooking spray to form rounder, apple shaped balls.
Step 4: Break pretzel sticks in half and stick pretzels into each “apple”.
Step 5: Use a knife or kitchen scissors to cut leaves out of green fruit roll ups (adults only). Place leaves on top of each “apple”.
