If your kids are anything like mine, then they love rice krispie treats. Imagine their delight if you create these adorable little Turkey Krispie Treasts. They are extremely easy to make and the kids will love!
6 cups rice krispies cereal (or any “crisp rice” cereal)
3 tbsp butter
4 cups mini marshmallows
Mini peanut butter cups
Red M&M’s (or chocolate candies)
2 tbsp. icing- any variety.
Spray a large, 9 x 13 pan with cooking spray
In a large pot, melt butter on medium heat
Stir in marshmallows, stir frequently until melted
Stir in 6 cups cereal, until well combined
Dump krispie mixture into pan
Using parchment paper, press mixture down into the pan evenly
Cool for about an hour
Using a cup or other circular item, cut circles out of cooled treats, be sure to re-shape and keep cutting out circles until you’ve used all of the mixture. This makes probably 8-10 turkeys, depending on the circle size.
To assemble your turkey, use a small amount of icing on the back of your candies- the peanut butter cup for the body, candy eyes, red candy for the turkey gobbler or beak, and candy corn for feathers.
