I saw a blog post a while back where someone purchased pre-baked cookies and decorated them. I have also seen Little Debbies snack cakes that have been decorated in really cool ways. Well, I have this giant box of individually wrapped Rice Krispies Treats, no ambition to make my own from scratch, and a desire to serve some decorated Rice Krispies Treats as a gift. So, I took the short cut by using these pre-made treats that are already cut perfectly and taste so yummy!!!
First, place them on wax paper.
Next, melt a variety of colored chocolates (in an open zip lock bag for 1 minute and then in 20 minute intervals until melted). Cut a small hole in one corner of the bag and squeeze out your design.
|Be careful not to over heat the chocolate or push to hard on the bag or it will bust!|
|Notice the difference in the thickness of the chocolate? |
It depends on how big the whole is. I like to start with a very small cut and then enlarge it if needed.
|For the pumpkins, I spread the orange chocolate and then added the other colors.|
|This super cute box from the dollar store was my inspiration.|
|Add plastic wrap to keep it fresh and you have a super cute treat to give!|
