  1. Prepare the Marshmallow Mixture:

    • In a large pot, melt the butter over low heat. Add the mini marshmallows and stir until completely melted and smooth. Add green food coloring until the desired shade is achieved.
  2. Combine with Cereal:

    • Remove the pot from heat and add the Rice Krispies cereal. Stir until the cereal is well-coated with the marshmallow mixture.
  3. Shape the Trees:

    • Allow the mixture to cool slightly until it is comfortable to handle. Grease your hands with butter or non-stick cooking spray. Shape the mixture into small cone shapes to resemble Christmas trees.
  4. Add Decorations:

    • While the trees are still slightly sticky, press mini M&Ms, sprinkles, or other small candies into the trees to serve as ornaments.
    • Insert a pretzel stick into the base of each tree for the trunk.
    • Place a star-shaped candy or a dab of icing on top of each tree to serve as the tree topper.
  5. Set and Serve:

    • Place the decorated trees on a sheet of wax or parchment paper to set. Allow them to cool completely before serving.
