Directions:

  5. Press orange cereal mixture firmly on top of the white layer, then top with the remaining candy corn.
  6. To make the yellow layer, in a clean medium pot on low heat, stir together butter with mini marshmallows until melted, then stir in yellow food coloring until the desired shade is reached. Remove from heat, then pour marshmallow mixture over Rice Krispies cereal, stirring well to coat cereal.
  7. Press yellow cereal mixture firmly on top of the orange layer, then allow the pan to set about 15 minutes to cool and solidify.
  8. Flip the pan onto a plate to pop the “cake” out. Set aside.
  9. In three microwave-safe bowls, melt the candy melts on 30-second intervals, stirring in between, until smooth. Drizzle the cake with candy melts, and allow to set before slicing and serving. Enjoy!
