Krispy Apple Treats

Krispy Apple Treats


  • 6 C. Krispy Rice Cereal
  • 1 pkg. large marshmallows
  • 3 T. butter
  • 1 small pkg. Jell-o powder, cherry or strawberry flavor
  • 25 small Tootsie Roll Candies
  • Royal Icing, tinted green
  • Baking spray
  • Wax Paper
  • Red Food Coloring, optional


  1. Place marshmallows and butter in large microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high for 2 minutes. Stir and microwave for an additional minute. Remove from microwave and stir in jell-o powder. If desired, you can add a few drops of red food coloring (depending on how “red” your jell-o is). Add Krispy Rice cereal and stir well. Spray hands with baking spray and roll mixture into balls (a little larger than a golf ball) and drop on wax paper.
  2. After balls have set for a few minutes, use your thumb to press into the top to make an “apple” shape.
  3. Add a small tootsie roll “stem” and using royal icing (or any green candy), pipe on a “leaf”. I actually would have rather used some kind of green candy but didn’t have any on hand. I just used royal icing and a leaf-shaped icing tip.
  4. Serve to your favorite kiddos! These would also be a really fun “Teacher Appreciation Day” snack!
