Rice Krispy Goblins

Rice Krispy Goblin - Cloth Diaper AddictsRice Krispy Treats is my favorite snack food in the world.  Okay, maybe not 100%, but it’s something that I can eat bucket loads of.  I have never gotten tired of them.  What makes them even more fun is you can actually do stuff with the pile of cereal and marshmallow goo.  This time around, we did Rice Krispy Goblins.

Making Rice Krispy Goblins is a pretty simple thing… and someone who is more artistic than I could make something pretty fierce and amazing.

Rice Krispy Goblins:

1/4 cup of butter

40 large marshmallows or 5 cups of mini marshmallows

6 cups of cereal

As per usual, melt butter, add marshmallows, and stir until marshmallows are smooth and creamy.  Add in some green icing dye or food color (I prefer icing dye, hands down) and mix until you have a bit darker than the desired color.  Stir in cereal.  Dump on the counter to make shapes.

I’ve found (through sheer accident; I had to wait a bit for Norton to finish washing his hands) that the shapes set better when it’s had a little to start to settle.  It also sticks less to your hands.  (Usually, I end up having to spray my hands with copious amounts of Pam as I make the shapes.  The Rice Krispy pumpkins were especially sticky.)  On the downside, though, the finished product tastes a little less gooey, too.  Or maybe it’s because I used large marshamallows… and I should have used more to get the same results of 5 cups of mini marshmallows.

Once the balls are rolled, I dipped the top of my Rice Krispy Goblins in chocolate frosting and then rolled the top in toffee chips.  I used mini M&Ms, also dipped in chocolate frosting, to give my Rice Krispy Goblins eyes and a mouth.  Candy corn would have been another awesome alternative… but I didn’t have any, so I used what I had.

And Norton and Eudora really seemed to enjoy it.
