    aimbrulee's Note:

    This requires a bundt cake pan. It is fun and easy to make and the end result is so cute. Its great for parties because it uses four batches of the rice krispy treats recipe. Make the face with black colored icing or fondant. Orange , green and black food color will be required, I recommend using the food color paste that is used for cake decorating, buy it at the craft store.

    4. 4
      Pour rice krispy mixture into a greased Bundt pan, and press firmly and spread evenly with the bottom of a buttered spatula. Let it cool.
    5. 5
      Loosen the edges of the krispy treat and turn bundt pan over to remove it. Place rounded side down and flat side up on a plate.
    6. 6
      Repeat the previous steps again but this time as soon as the marshmallows are melted put 1/2 cup of melted marshmallows aside in a separate bowl. Have someone help you on this step because the marshmallows will firm up quickly.
    7. 7
      Add green food color to the seperate 1/2 c of marshmallow , stir quickly then add 3/4 c rice krispies to it and blend.
