Ok, so I love when you make something that is just so darned fun. Oh, and tasty too! Fun and tasty. We are all familiar with those yummy little chocolate morsels……chocolate kisses. Those cute little foil wrapped morsels of pure yumminess, with those little white slivers of paper peeking out of the top. For some reason, I have always loved carefully peeling away the foil wrapper and popping that chocolate drop right into my mouth.
Well, I love making rice krispy treats into that same fun shape, wrapping them with foil and putting a personalized note on the white strip of paper. But the fun thing is, you can make them huge! Yes…so darned cute and fun. It makes a great gift too! Think of all the notes that you can write to personalize it. I’m tellin ya, you are going to want to make these for everyone!
Just get a cheap funnel to use as your mold, some thin bargain brand foil paper, print up a tag and make your favorite rice krispie treat recipe. Get started!!! It’s fun!!
your favorite recipe for rice krispie treats or mine:
6 cups rice krispies or cocoa krispies cereal
4 tblsp butter
1 tsp vanilla
6 cups marshmallows (set aside 1/2 cup)
1/2 cup Chocolate chips (melt them in the microwave)
1 large funnel (the size of your choice)
Some thin, cheap foil paper
Print a note on some white paper, cut into a strip
Butter the inside of your funnel(s). Melt the butter in a large pan, add 5 1/2 cups marshmallows and stir until melted. Remove from heat and add the vanilla. Stir in the cereal and remaining 1/2 cup of marshmallows. Immediately pack it into your funnels tightly. Let it sit for about 20 minutes. Remove from funnel onto some wax paper. Let it firm up. Melt the chocolate and dip the bottom of your kiss into the chocolate. Place it chocolate side down onto the wax paper and chill until the chocolate sets up. Tear off a piece of foil paper large enough to wrap your kiss. Place your rice krispy kiss in the center of the foil. Bring up the sides of the foil to cover the entire treat and tuck your personal note strip into the top. Squeeze or twist the top shut tight. Gently smooth out the foil around your treat. That’s it! Yay!!
