Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Set aside.
Place the Rice Krispies in a large bowl. Set aside.
In a large saucepan, melt the butter over low heat. Add the marshmallows and stir until marshmallows are completely melted. Once melted, add coloring to the shade of your choice, keeping in mind the color will look lighter once mixed with the cereal.
Remove saucepan from heat, add Rice Krispies cereal, and stir until well-coated.
Using an ice cream scoop or ¼ cup measure sprayed with non-stick spray, gently press a portion of Rice Krispies into a circular shape with your hands. Place on the prepared baking sheet, then create a hole in the middle with your fingers. Add red candies before wreath sets. Allow to cool completely before serving. Store treats in an airtight container up to one week.
Food coloring: I prefer gel coloring. My favorite is AmeriColor.
Red candies: I used cinnamon hard candies, but you can also use red m&ms (mini or regular) or something like Sixlets.
