Apple Krispie Treats

Ingredients:
6 tablespoons butter
1 bag (10-ounces) marshmallows
Several drops red food coloring or a few drops red food coloring gel
6 to 7 cups crispy rice cereal
10 to 14 mini pretzels sticks, broken in half
Green decorating frosting
Wax paper

Directions:
Melt butter in a large non-stick pot over low heat. Add marshmallows. Stir often until melted. Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla and food coloring. Then stir in the rice cereal and stir until combined. Allow to cool slightly. Use gloves sprayed with cooking spray to shape into an apple. Place onto the wax paper and add a pretzel stick for the stem. Then add a little green frosting to make the leaves.
