My little brother is into Minecraft and I've been wanting to bake him something that is Minecraft related. So I made these cool Crispy Rice Creeper treats (Creeper is a character from the game). These are made the same way you make traditional Rice Krispies Treats, but with green food coloring and candy melts for decoration. I made some of them bigger squares and some are smaller. I surprised my brother with the treats when he got home from school today and I'm so glad he liked them!
- 3 tbs of butter
- 1 package (10oz) of regular marshmallows
- 6 cups of crispy rice cereal (such as Rice Krispies)
- Desired amount of green liquid food coloring
- Half a package of black Wilton Chocolate Candy Melts, melted
In a large sauce pan melt the butter and then add marshmallows. Add the green food coloring. I used about 8 drops, but you could use more if you want it greener.
Turn off the heat from the stove. Add in the cereal and mix well so that all the cereal is coated in the melted green marshmallow.
Completely spray a 13 x 9 x 2-inch pan with baking spray (so that the treats don't stick to the pan). Press the mixture into the pan. Put in fridge for about 30 minuets.
Print & cut out a face of the Creeper and use that as a guide on how big to cut the squares. I used a metal spatula to cut out the squares.
Put the melted candy melts into a pipping bag or squeeze bottle. Place wax paper over the print out and put chocolate where the
eyes and mouth are.
Let the chocolate faces harden for 10 minuets. Peel off & place them on top of the squares. Done. Enjoy!
