    Step 2: When butter is almost melted, add mini marshmallows and stir to coat.  Allow marshmallows to melt about 75-80%, add a few drops of yellow food coloring and stir.  Turn off burner and add Rice Krispies Cereal.

    Tip:  Flavor your treats using extracts, powdered cake mixes, muffin mixes, and cookie mixes by adding a few drops or scoops along with the Rice Krispies.  Try mix-ins like peanut butter, chocolate chips, or cake mixes to experiment with even more great flavors.
