Slightly Creepy Olympic Rice Krispie Treats

I was trying to think of what I could make for my Olympic theme party last weekend, and came up with the idea of Olympic ring rice krispie treats.  They didn't turn out quiiiiite like I hoped, but so few things do.

I made the recipe as usual (except I use a much higher marshmallow to cereal ratio) and then split it between several cupcake pans to make circles.  You have to do this really quickly, because as it cools the marshmallow hardens, and then it's impossible to work with (I mayyyy have broken a wooden spoon on these).  Then once they cooled, I popped them out of the pan.  Using a clean paintbrush, I painted the edges with food color gel.  A couple of my gels were old so the colors didn't come out as strong as they usually do.

Warning:  Eating anything with food color gel may make your mouth look like this:
