Sarah | Must Have Mom
package mini marshmallows
5 1/2 cups
rice krispies cereal
package red jello
red gel food coloring
Melt butter in large microwave safe bowl in the microwave.
Add marshmallows and stir to coat.
Microwave 60 seconds and stir. Microwave in 30 second intervals until marshmallows are completely melted.
Stir in jello powder.
Add food coloring and continue mixing until desired color is reached.
Add cereal and mix well.
Add additional food coloring as needed.
Wear greased gloves (to prevent dying your hands) and form small balls and shape like an apple, flat on the bottom and round on top.
Place on parchment paper and continue forming all 12 apples.
Let set until they firm slightly (a few minutes) then use your finger to form a diver in the top where the tootsie roll stem will go.
Then put tootsie roll into the divet and form around the tootsie roll so it holds in place.
Next cut 1/4" strips of airhead candy and fold in half to create a leaf.
Place next to tootsie roll stem.
Store in airtight container.
