Have you ever wanted to show up at a party or event with something everyone was talking about? That is exactly what happened to me when I brought these beautiful treats into my daughter's class for her birthday. It is an adorable fall treat and can be used for any occasion.
What you will need:
Rice Krispies Treats
(I cheated and bought them pre-made because I made them the night before)
(Regular and mini sized)
(2 or more containers it's never good to run out)
Cake decorating items
(I used The Pampered Chef Decorator Bottle Set. They are super easy to use.)
Divide the white icing into 3 separate bowls and color as shown below.
1 container ¼ container ¾ container
Yellow Orange Green
Once you have your yellow and orange well blended separately add some orange to the yellow. This will give it the darker yellow look of a sunflower. Hint: If you do not blend completely it is ok. Slight orange streaks in the yellow give a great effect.
Once everything is mixed add the orange colored yellow to your cake decorator and use a basket weave tip. You can use a smoother tip but, this is what I used. Then add the green icing to a separate decorator and use a rosette tip.
Once you have your icing ready it is time to decorate!
Now that the oreos have petals it is time to place the flowers on the rice krispies treat. Squirt a glob of icing on the treat where you want to place the flower then set the flower on top of it. When the icing begins to set it will act as a glue and hold it together.
Once the flowers have been placed get your red M&M’s out and place one on each large oreo. Use the same method of ‘gluing’ with icing as you did the flowers. Don’t use too much or it will squirt out around the ‘ladybug’.
Now it is time for the final touches!
Using your green icing make leaves in between the flowers. Use the same method as you did with the sunflower petals. If you are lucky it will take you a few tries to get it down and you will be forced to sacrifice more rejects to the kingdom or your belly.
Next it is time to decorate the ‘ladybug’ (your red M&M). Take the black gel icing and make a small line or semi-circle for the black head. Add small black dots for the spots and voila! You have a lady bug! If you are really talented you might be able to add a black line down the center of the bug to separate the wings but, I found that it just made things look messy on mine.
Be sure to let your treats set out for a little while so the icing has a chance to set up a bit.
Congratulations! Your snacks are going to be the talk of the party!
Do you have any great suggestions for this snack or others?
