A Fun Fall Treat!

Last night, Aaron and I checked one of our fall bucket list items off the list.
We made candy corn rice krispie treats.
Step 1:
Light a pumpkin spice candle and test out some Blue Moon Harvest Pumpkin Ale to get in the Fall spirit.
Step 2:
Assemble the 4 ingredients. 1 box of Rice Krispies, 1 package of marshmallows, food coloring, and a stick of butter.
Step 3:
Melt 3 tablespoons of butter over the stove and mix in the entire package of marshmallows until smooth and creamy.
Step 4:
Divide marshmallow mixture into three different bowls.
All together, you should have 1.5 cups of the marshmallow mixture. We used 3/4 cup for the orange part, 1/2 cup for the yellow, and 1/4 cup for the white.
Step 5:
Mix the orange mixture with 3 cups of Rice Krispies. Warning: it is messy and you will have rice krispies stuck everywhere. It works best if you get your hands wet first, or spray cooking spray on them.
Mix the yellow mixture with 2 cups of Rice Krispies.
And the white mixture with 1/2 a cup of Rice Krispies.
Step 6:
Spray a circular cake pan with cooking spray. Add the orange mixture on the outer edge of the pan, like so.
Step 7:
Add the yellow mixture next.
Step 8:
Then, add the white mixture last.
Our white mixture might have sat on the stove too long because it kind of turned brown and carmel-like...oops!
Step 9:
Let it sit for about 10 minutes, then cut into slices like a pizza/pie.
Step 10:
Neither one of us had ever made rice krispie treats before so it was a fun, new experience.  We didn't realize how sticky and messy it was and we got a little bit frustrated at first, but it was well worth the yummy treat.
