3 Tbsp. butter
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
Green food coloring
5-1/2 cups mini marshmallows
6 cups crispy rice cereal
More mini marshmallows (for decorating)
Handful of pretzel sticks
Candy for decorations, M&M's, candy corn, etc.
1. In a large saucepan, melt and slightly brown butter on medium heat. Add vanilla extract and marshmallows. Stir until marshmallows are completely melted. Add food coloring until desired green color is reached. Add cereal and stir until completely combined. Turn off heat and let sit for a few minutes, until cool enough to handle.
2. When mixture has cooled enough, spray your hands with cooking spray and mold cereal mix into squares. Gently press a pretzel stick into each side of the square, then press a mini marshmallow into the other end of each pretzel. Add candy for the eyes and noses (use a little frosting to adhere).
