Football Rice Krispie Treat
These football field rice krispie treats will pair nicely with football rice krispie treats made with Cocoa Krispies!
What You’ll Need
• 6 cups Rice Krispies
• 12 oz bag of mini marshmallows
• 2 tbsp butter
• 1 12 oz bag of candy melts (green)
• White icing or decorating gel
What You’ll Do
In a saucepan, add butter and a ten-ounce bag of mini marshmallows. Next, place the saucepan on the stove on medium-high heat. Stir vigorously so the marshmallows will melt without sticking to the pan.
Once mixture is melted, lower the temperature to low-medium heat.
Next, pour 7 cups of Rice Krispies in a large mixing bowl. Pour the marshmallow mixture over the cereal, and stir thoroughly.
Line a 9×9″ baking pan with parchment paper. Pour the mixture into the baking pan and smooth the cereal to the edges of the pan. Allow 2-4 hours to completely cool.
Next, cut the treats into rectangles, being sure to trim the edges so the treats are uniform in shape and size.
Melt the candy melts according to the directions on the bag. Once they’re completely melted, use a spoon to cover the tops of the rectangles. Allow candy melts to dry completely before the next step.
Once the candy coating has dried, use the white icing or decorating gel to make lines across the treats to resemble the football field.
Serve and enjoy!
