I had so much fun making these Rice Krispies Flowers. Next time you make Rice Krispies treats, grab your cookie cutters and have fun. You can decorate them with sprinkles, color sugar, jelly beans, or frosting. Use your imagination and see what you can come up with.
I think this would be so much fun for kids. It would not only be fun to make and eat but would be a great party idea. Let each child design and decorate their own creative treat.
To make this treats, mix up a batch of treats using you favorite recipe and spread in a lined 9x15 pan or a jelly roll pan. You want the treats thinner than normal unless you are lucky enough to have those super thick cookie cutters. I also lined my pan with wax paper which made it easy to remove the treats when it came time to start using the cookie cutters.
I "glued" my sprinkles and sugars with Eagle Brand milk. I used a small pastry brush (an artist brush also works great) and just dipped it into may Eagle Brand milk and "painted" it on the krispies treats. Frosting works great for larger sprinkles but the sweetened condensed milk works better for tiny sprinkles or colored sugars.
