very cute result! Hard to find the licorice so we ended up using sour straws that we cut in half lengthwise. it was still a little wide, so some of the marshmallows kind of broke, but they still looked cute. The rice krispy mixture was hot to touch, and we needed to oil our hands frequently. Lastly, we used sprinkles instead of m and m's because of allergies, but those turned out well also.
