Tips for Making Shaped Rice Krispies
This is an easy dessert so fun Rice Krispies treat ideas like this can be enjoyed by everyone. After making our fair share of them, here are our top tips for making Rice Krispies treats.
- You can buy Rice Krispies Treats already made. It’s really helpful if you’re putting together a lot for a class party, birthday party, or for a large display (these are our favorite size). Note: if you MAKE them, you are making gluten-free Rice Krispies treats. If you are buying them, they are NOT gluten-free.
- Mix the marshmallows and butter constantly until the marshmallows are melted.
- Add colorants when the marshmallows are almost melted completely.
- The marshmallow mix is HOT. If you have kids helping, an adult should transfer the mix to the cereal and stir.
Minion Rice Krispies
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 2 cups miniature marshmallows
- yellow gel food coloring
- 3 cups Rice Krispies (or other rice cereal)
- 3-4 ounces white fondant and black edible marker (or candy eyes)
- black frosting
- cooking spray
- heart-shaped silicone pan (get it on Amazon here)
- Spray the heart pan with cooking oil and set aside. Place rice cereal in a large bowl.
- In a medium-sized sauce pan, melt butter over medium heat. Once melted add marshmallows and stir constantly until melted. Add 2 drops of yellow coloring and stir.
- Add melted marshmallow mixture to the Rice Krispies and fold until fully incorporated. Scoop into heart molds and pack tightly. Allow it to set for 30-minutes.
- For the fondant eyes, roll 6 balls about 1/2-inch thick. Flatten by pressing down on them lightly. Add a pupil in the center of the eye with the edible marker.
- Gently remove the Minion Rice Krispies treats from the mold. Affix an eye (fondant or candy) to the center of the treat. Use the frosting to outline the eye and make the lines on either side to form the googles. Add small stripes to the tops of the hearts for the hair.
