Mini Rice Krispies Treat Cherry Cupcakes

Aren't these just the most darling mini cupcakes?

I found this recipe in some magazine awhile back...not sure which one because I only ripped out the one page, so I hung onto this until I had the chance to make these cute treats.

Not much is needed to whip these up...

2 T butter
1/2 of a 10 bag of marshmallows, about 20
3 1/2 cups of Rice Krispies or any other brand of toasted rice 
2 T dry cherry flavored gelatin mix
vanilla frosting
drop of red food coloring
12 maraschino cherries

Generously coat a pan of 12 mini-muffin cups with non-stick cooking spray. In a large pot over medium low heat, melt together the butter and marshmallows. Stir occasionally until the mixture is smooth. Add the gelatin mix and the toasted rice. Evenly divide the mixture and press it into the 12 muffin cups leaving a little extra to overlap the edges. Let cool.

Tip: Before handling the rice marshmallow mixture, coat your hands with a little cooking spray, this will prevent the mixture from sticking to your fingers.

Whip together a drop or two of the food coloring with the frosting and then place in a pastry bag. Pipe the frosting onto the tops of the cooled mini cupcakes and top each one with a maraschino cherry.

The kiddies and adults alike with love this little twist on these classic rice cereal treats!
