Fall is in full force and that means apple season. Whether you are homeschooling and are looking to expand your curriculum a bit or just want to create a playful treat, these apple shaped rice krispie treats are a winner.

My kids really enjoy these occasional surprises like this as marshmallows, candy and fruit roll ups are not usually on the menu.

(Yield about 18)

INGREDIENTS
6 cup Rice Krispies Cereal
4 tbsp Butter
10.5 oz Marshmallows
Red Food Coloring
Green Food Coloring
3 Tootsie Roll Midgees
Green Fruit Rollups
