A recipe that we fell in love with and just had to make. (like these marshmallow krispie leaves) In the first paragraph, after the name of the recipe we’ll write a “Pinterest Recipe.” This way (you) our readers will know that the recipe was found on Pinterest.

Fall Colored Rice Krispie Treat Leaves
- 12 tablespoons butter, divided
- 12 cups mini marshmallows, divided
- 12 cups rice krispie cereal, divided
- few drops red gel food coloring
- few drops orange gel food coloring
- few drops purple gel food coloring
- few drops brown gel food coloring
- fall colored sprinkles
- Lightly butter a large baking sheet. (12 x 17) Set aside.
- For each color use: 3 tablespoons butter, 3 cups mini marshmallows, and 3 cups rice krispie cereal.
- For each color: Melt 3 tablespoons butter in a medium saucepan. Add 3 cups mini marshmallows, stirring until completely melted. Remove from heat, add a few drops of gel food coloring, until you reach desired color, stirring constantly. Stir in 3 cups rice krispie cereal, stirring until cereal is completely coated.
- Pour mixture into prepared pan. Press mixture firmly into pan, in a row, with a buttered spatula, using only a quarter of the pan. (All four colors of krispie treats will fill the pan.)
- Repeat until all colors are used and pan has 4 rows of colored rice krispie mixture.
- Set aside for 15 minutes. Using a leaf shaped cookie cutter, cut out as many leaves as possible.
- (I got 3 leaves of each color, 12 leaves total.)
- You can easily combine the remaining rice krispie scraps and cut out several multi-colored leaves.
