I made these with my kindergaretn class and they thought they were fantastic. What a fun way to eat a rice krispies treat. They were very messy though, sticky marshmellow everywhere. BE sure to cut out the circles as soon as it starts to cool though because otherwise they go hard and crumble when you try to cut them out.
cute for a decoration
So adorable! Great for the holidays!
These came out adorable - I used the Cocoa Krispies for a brown color. Rather than do a separate cutout for the nose, I simply put the white frosting down in a circle for the nose area. If it's thick enough, you don't need the extra layer. I just used a frosting tip from Wilton. THen a red M&M for the nose. I cut the head out while the krispies were still very warm, then used scraps to make the ears - because they were still warm and moldable they stuck without using frosting. The pretzels were a pain to break - I did not figure out a good way to do it and ruined way more than I used. I cut a slit in the top of the head to insert them more easily.
I suggest rolling the reindeer into balls and covering your hands with Crisco to keep them from sticking. I used candy pieces for the eyes and noses. I hade some homemade fondant hanging around for the snout. The pretzels were really hard to break into the right shape. I should've made royal icing to stick everything. Otherwise, super cute!
So cool for kids to make
