....it's blue teeth
That's what this recipe will leave you with, but little kids love it, and grown kids will ask you to please make it for them to take to work.....no kidding.
Especially if it's your middle child. So let's get started, shall we?
Here is the cast of
characters ingredients. Rice Krispies, miniature marshmallows, one stick of butter, blue food coloring....lots of it, tube of black icing, two large marshmallows, chocolate chip cookies.
First, melt the stick of butter over medium heat in a six quart sauce pan.
Add one bag of miniature marshmallows. Stir until melted, then remove from heat.
Add blue food coloring to butter/marshmallow mixture.
Add Rice Krispies, a small amount at a time, mixing, then adding more until.....
All of the cereal is completely covered with the blue stuff.
If you want it darker, add more blue food coloring. FYI, I buy the large one ounce bottles of food coloring at Hobby Lobby. It's more economical than those sets of four colors.
Dump the blue cereal mixed with the blue stuff on a platter, or as you can see, I use a 14" cake round. That way I don't have to worry about one more cake platter disappearing into a black hole somewhere, never to be seen again.
While the mixture is still supple....I love saying supple. Anyways, while it's still supple, make two indentations for eyes with your fingers...then insert a large marshmallow for each eye. Again, while the mixture is still supple
giggle giggle make a crater for the mouth, and ice it with black icing.
Shove some chocolate chip cookies into the mouth while the icing is still.......soft.
There you go!! A Sesame Street Cookie Monster. You can do Elmo, Big Bird,
MadonnaThe Grouch, or any other character. Fun and easy to make in about 10-15 minutes.
