Fall in our family has always opened the door to apple time as well. My parents always took me and my siblings to the apple orchard where they would bring home what we picked and many more apples as well. You see apples would be our snacks, help make up meals and be offered in desserts as well. I continue the tradition of visiting the apple orchard but first will build up excitement as we make apple snacks, coloring sheets for days ahead of the trip These rice crispy apples made the list years ago and still are prepared to day Try them and enjoy
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”.
