Adorable spin on regular Rice Krispies Treats
Servings: 10 Treats

Equipment

  • Bunny cookie cutter
  • Butter knife
  • Paring knife
  • Large saucepan
  • 9 x 13 baking pan (greased)
  • Spatula

Ingredients

  • 24 oz Packages of Mini Marshmallows two 12-oz bags
  • 1/2 c Butter salted or unsalted; your choice
  • 8 c Rice Krispies brand cereal or another brand of crisped rice cereal
  • 1 tub White frosting any brand
  • 1 tube Black Wilton gel icing or another brand of gel icing
  • 10 Candy hearts or M&Ms
  • 20 Wilton candy eyes Or another brand of candy eyes

Instructions

Rice Krispies Treats

  • Slice butter into 4 equal parts and place in a large
    saucepan, allowing it to melt about 3/4 of the way
  • Once the butter is about 3/4 melted, add in the 2 packages
    of marshmallows and turn the heat up to medium
  • Stirring continuously, allow the marshmallows to melt about
    3/4 of the way. Do NOT allow them to melt the entire way, as this will
    overcook them. You actually want them still a little poofy in the saucepan
  • Once the marshmallows melt about 3/4 of the way, add in the
    crispy rice cereal, 2-3 cups at a time. Do not stir. Rather, fold them up
    from the bottom of the saucepan, then press down, and then fold them up
    again and then press down again
  • Add in another 2-3 cups of the cereal and repeat the motion
    of folding and pressing down. Repeat until you've added all of the cereal
  • Pour the coated mixture into a 9×13 greased baking pan and
    gently press down with a your hand or the back of a large spoon (I
    sprayed mine with non stick spray so the bars wouldn't stick)
  • Allow to cool a few hours before cutting with cookie
    cutters

Kitty Decorations

  • Use the bunny shaped cookie cutter to cut the treats. My cookie cutter was about 3 inches tall, which made about 10 treats out of one 9 x 13 pan.
  • Using a small paring knife, cut the bunny ears into smaller
    triangular kitty ears. I played around with it and made 2 even and small
    slices. Start with small cuts and you can always trim them more
    Adorable Kitty Rice Krispie Treats
  • Frost each Kitty treat with white frosting and set aside
  • Add 2 eyes and a nose to each treat.
