I’ve got an easy recipe for you & it will make you super popular with your kids! Chickadee took them to preschool for her special birthday treat & according to her, everybody ate them all :) From the mouth of my three year old to your lips, they are good! And do you really need anymore confirmation??
I wanted to put a fun spin on rice krispie treats. We talked about adding sprinkles, using Fruity Pebbles instead, or dipping them in chocolate. She chose the chocolate. And since her birthday is in October I thought a little monster spin would be fun!
We started by following the basic Rice Krispie recipe. 6 cups of Rice Krispies, one 10 oz. bag of marshmallows and 3 tablespoons of butter.
Melt butter in large saucepan on low heat. Add marshmallows; cook until marshmallows are completely melted and mixture is well blended, stirring constantly.
Remove from heat. Add cereal; mix well.
Press onto bottom of 13×9-inch pan sprayed with cooking spray. Cool completely.
After they cooled I cut them into rectangles and used half a decorative paper straw to create a rice krispie treat on a stick.
To create the “monster” we used white chocolate chips & candy eyes.
- 6 cups of Rice Krispies
- 3 tbsp of butter
- 10 ounce bag of marshmallows
- 3/4 cup white chocolate chips
- Food coloring
- Candy eyes
- Follow instructions on the back of the Rice Krispie Box to make Rice Krispies.
- For creating the monsters, we used about 3/4 a cup of white chocolate chips.
- Melt in a microwave save bowl for 1 minute. Then stir until completely melted.
- If you want to dye the white chocolate use food coloring.
- In a shallow bowl dip the rice krispies. Then turn them right side up and let the chocolate drip down a little bit.
- Lay on parchment paper and add eyes.
- Give the chocolate time to harden.
You could really use all different colors and have so much fun with these little monsters. Chickadee LOVED helping me make them and dipping them in the white chocolate. I love that she was able to take ownership over her special treat. She was so excited to share them with her friends! I hope you create a few and share them too :)
