Rice Crispy Treat Mother’s Day DIY
In the Mood for Sugary Food
So I like sugar. Lots and lots of sugar. And lately I couldn’t keep my mind off of it. I partially blame my cousin for bringing me sweets from Panama when she came recently. She knows my weakness! So instead of resisting, I decided to indulge. To convince myself that this wasn’t just for me, I decided to make this for my mom AND for me. Eh? Eh? *grins and wiggles eyebrows enticingly, hoping it is a convincing lie*
Well, to be fair, my mother is actually as big on sweets as I am, so it worked out. So onward! To makes treats for my mom!
This will be a quick DIY that you can use for any season. I just happen to use it as an excuse to make a treat for spring. So let’s get going.
You’ll need a few things to get you going.
1. As many Rice Crispy Treats as you want to make. If you want to make your own, more power to you!
2. Disposable Candy Decorating Bags
3. Cookie Sticks
4. Meltable Candy in your chosen colors
5. Party Bags or Lollipop Bags
6. Optional: Twist ties
7. Optional: oven mitts, dish towels, or hot pads (because the melted candy will be hot)
From here on out it isn’t that difficult. Just take it slow so things go more smoothly.
1. Before getting started, insert the sticks into place through the bottom center of the treats.
2. Fill the disposable bag about half way up with meltable candy. I find it best to melt it in different spurts of time in the microwave. 30 seconds, 30 seconds, then 10 seconds if needed. Each time you take it out, squish it around to get the clumps out.
3. As it gets hotter, handle the melted candy with the pot holders so you don’t burn yourself.
4. Cut the tip of the bag as narrow or as wide as you need it and go to town drawing on your rice crispy treats!
5. Leave the candy to harden. Refrigerate if you want it faster.
6. When candy hardens you can then place them inside of the plastic bags to store or give away.
