Now:

  • Melt the butter in the saucepan and add the marshmallows
  • Stir until smooth
  • If you want the mice colored, add the coloring now and stir in
  • Pour the marshmallow mixture into cereal and mix well
  • Place wax paper into the 9 x 13 pan and pour the rice krispy mixture into the pan
  • Spread the mixture out evenly
  • Let the mixture cool slightly and then lift the wax paper up out of the pan
  • Use the cookie cutter to make hearts and place them on another sheet of wax paper for decorating
  • Decorate with conversation hearts for the ears, nonpareils for the eyes, red hot for the nose and licorice for the tail
  • If your marshmallow treats have cooled too much the nose might not stick. Just grab a little marshmallow from the sauce pan and use that as glue
