How to make Elmo Rice Krispie Treats

Ingredients:

  • Kellogg’s Rice Krispie Cereal
  • Kraft Mini Marshmallows
  • Butter
  • Americolor Super Red Food Coloring
  • Orange M&M’s
  • Oreo Cookies

Making Red Rice Krispie Treats

We made an 8×8″ pan of Rice Krispie Treats for our Elmo Rice Krispie Treats.  This one pan made six Elmo Rice Krispie Treats.  To make the Rice Krispie Treats, first melt 3 tablespoons of butter in a medium saucepan.  Once the butter is completely melted, add 3 cups of mini marshmallows.  Stir on medium low heat until the marshmallows are completely melted.  Once the marshmallows are melted, add the red food coloring.  We used about 2 large drops of the Americolor Super Red Food Coloring for this batch.  Now add 3 cups of Kellogg’s Rice Krispies cereal and stir until the Rice Krispies are completely covered in the red marshmallow mixture.  Let the mixture cool for 2-3 minutes and then pour into a buttered 8×8″ pan.  Press the Rice Krispie mixture evenly into the pan and let cool for 5-10 minutes.

Cutting Rice Krispie Treats

Now cut the Rice Krispie Treats into six pieces.

To make the Elmo Face, start with two Wilton Bright White Candy Melts.  We used a little bit of black icing on the back as “glue”.  Press the candy melts, top side down into the top part of the Rice Krispie Treat.  Add an orange Peanut M&M for Elmo’s nose.  For Elmo’s mouth, cut one chocolate wafer from an Oreo in half and place it directly under Elmo’s M&M nose.  Finally, use your Black icing to create two eyes on the candy melts.

  1. How do you get all the facial features to stick?

  2. How long does it take you to make these?

    • Not that long. It takes no time at all to make the Rice Krispie Treat mixture. I guess it depends on how many you need to make.

  3. how long do they stay fresh for?

    • Rice Krispie Treats freeze up great and defrost very quickly. If you want to keep them longer than a couple of days, I would suggest storing them like that.
