Steps 2 & 3: For each batch of Rice Krispie Treats you will need 3 tablespoons of butter, 3 cups of mini marshmallows and 3 cups of Rice Krispies Cereal.   Melt the butter in a large pan on medium heat. Add the marshmallows and stir until melted. Turn off the heat and add the food coloring to color the marshmallow mixture.

We got this spooky color of green by using the following amounts of Wilton Color Right Food Coloring:

4 Drops of Yellow
1 Drop of Blue

To create this shade of Purple we used our Wilton Color Right Food coloring in the following combination:

4 Drops of Pink
1 Drops of Blue
1 Drops of Red

Step 4: Let the Rice Krispie Treat mixture cool only until it is no longer burning to the touch.  You need to mold the witch hat while the mixture is still warm.  Grab approximately 1 oz. of Rice Krispie Treat mixture.
Step 5: Cover your hands with butter and mold the mixture into a small disc – this is the base of the Witch Hat.
Step 6: Next, grab another 1 oz. of the Rice Krispie Treat mixture and mold yourself a cone-like piece to be the top portion of the hat. Press the top of the hat onto the base of the hat.  They will stick together.
Step 7: Before the Witch Hats Rice Krispie Treats have cooled, bend down the top point of the hat.
