Rice Krispies Treat Snowman

I firmly believe that a Rice Krispies treat is one of the best desserts in the world.  A Rice Krispies treat can be simple: just mix them up, slap them in a pan, cut, and devour.  Or a Rice Krispies treat can be fancied up with icing dye, candies, pretzels, or anything else you desire.  You can even sculpt your Rice Krispies treat into a cool thing.

Last year, I made Rice Krispies treat Christmas trees.  This year I wanted to go three dimensional.  And that was how the Rice Krispy treat snowman was born.

Rice Krispy Treat Snowman (Cloth Diaper Addicts)

I already knew from making Rice Krispy pumpkins and Rice Krispy goblins for Halloween that making them into a ball is fairly doable.

To make your Rice Krispies treat Snowmen, double your basic Rice Krispies treat recipe:

1/2 cup of butter, melted
8 cups of mini-marshmallows (or 80 large ones)
12 cups of Rice Krispies cereal

That’s it.  Melt the butter, melt the marshmallows in the butter (stirring of course), and then stir in the cereal.  Because of working with such a large amount, I find that I get better results by slowly mixing in the cereal for the first bit, then just dumping the whole mess on a prep area of parchment paper and finishing the mix up by hand.

Warning: when mixing it with your hands, it’s hot and sticky.  Spray Pam cooking spray on your hands to keep your hands from getting too coated and be prepared to rinse in cold water when you come across a hot spot.  Don’t let your kids help with that part because it hurts.

Once you’ve got your goo mixed, start pressing them into balls.  The largest one should be about the size of a softball for your base layer.  Your middle layer should be about the size of a tennis ball or baseball.  Your top layer should be smaller, of course, but still to scale.  You may end up needing to reshape the balls as they harden, otherwise your snowman will end up listing to port.

Decorate your snowman before he gets too hard.  The more the treat goo has time to set, the more difficult it is to jam in those little eyes, nose, mouth, and buttons.  In fact, ours was too hard to give a mouth.  We used raisins for the eyes, nose, and buttons… but probably could have painted one on with decorative icing gel.

For the arms, we used toothpicks, but you can always use something like pretzel sticks.  We skipped the hat, but a chocolate dipped marshmallow would be a great choice!  A sprinkling of shredded coconut will make a nice bed of snow.

Even better?  The Rice Krispies treat snowman is something that your littles can help with, too (once the goo is cool enough, of course.)
