  • 2-4 drops orange food coloring
  • 6 cups Rice Krispies cereal


  • In a large saucepan, over low heat, melt the butter

  • Drop in the orange food color and stir until it's completely mixed in
  • Remove from the heat and add the Rice Krispies cereal, stirring until coated well
  • Lay a sheet of wax paper on the counter, place the Rice Krispies on top, then cover with another sheet of wax paper
  • Use a rolling pin to flatten the treats
  • Make shapes with the cookie cutter and set the finished ones on a serving tray
