Valentine’s Day Rice Krispies Treats Mice Recipe
I’ve never met a kiddo who doesn’t love Rice Krispies Treats, though I’m sure they’re out there. For those fans, though, this cute twist will become a new favorite. It’s easy and sweet.
You will also need:
- Non-stick cooking spray
- 9″ x 13″ baking pan
- Egg shaped cookie cutter
- Tiny heart shaped cutter
- Tube of black gel icing
- Pink and red fondant
Place your marshmallows and butter in a large mixing bowl and microwave for 1-2 minutes or until marshmallows gets puffy and mix in a few drops of pink food coloring.
Mix in your cereal.
Grease your baking pan and press your cereal mix firmly into the pan.
Freeze for about 30 minutes or until they start to firm up.
Use your cookie cutter to cut out your egg shapes, then roll out your fondant and use your heart shaped cutter to cut out several hearts from the pink and red fondant (2 pink and 1 red for each mouse).
Stick on a upside down red heart for the nose on the point of the egg.
Draw two black eyes above the nose with your black gel icing.
Then place two hearts above the eyes for the ears and carefully press them down on the Rice Krispies so they stick.
Now roll out several (one for each mouse) dime sized pieces of fondant into skinny snakes and press the end of each one onto the bottom back of each mouse for their tails.
