I made these for our church bake sale and people loved them! I used red and green toothpicks and colored the cereal red and green also. I divided the cereal into two gallon-sized bags and added one tsp of liquid food coloring to each bag. After shaking until the color was evenly distributed, the cereal got a little chewy. I spread the cereal on a rimmed cookie sheet and baked it at 200 degrees for 5-10 minutes, stirring occasionally until it was crispy again. When dipping the marshmallows, I followed someone else's advice and spun the toothpick between my thumb and forefinger to remove excess caramel before dipping in the cereal and I didn't have any problems with puddles at the bottom. My 7 year-old LOVES these!
