The Woeful Tale of the Rice Krispy "Monsters"


This is the woeful tale of a cooking craft gone wrong.

I was with my granddaughter and we were both excited about making Rice Krispy snowmen.


Pinterest has photos of them and they look so darned  cute.

Now granted, it's been a long, long time since I made Rice Krispy treats.



Instead of melting the mini-marshmallows in the melted butter, I just poured the butter, marshmallows and cereal in a big bowl.   Bad move.

It was difficult to mold  them because not all the marshmallows melted.

Then it was nearly impossible to stick the M&Ms in for eyes and red hots for mouths.

I had to laugh when the two-year-old said, "These look like dogs, Gammie."


To me, they resembled monsters. 

No where to be seen were Rice Krispy snowmen.

In any event, the monster dogs tasted good so making them wasn't a total loss.

Hope you got your chuckle for the day!

I seriously thought you made owls for Thanksgiving. You may have invented something. I just know you and your baby girl had fun making and munching them.

Aww...they don't have to be beautiful to be perfect!

But they were cute and they tasted good. I don't see a problem. LOL Bet y'all had fun.

Very cute, Susan. I'll bet they were still very tasty!

Bookie said...

What fun even if a little "off". Try again later after your taste buds want more!

Susan,
Love this silliness and time spent with the grand! No, they don't look like snowmen, but they certainly are loaded with personality and flavor!!
Hugs,
Jemma

My first thought was that you created adorable owls. And how tasty they are! Working with rice crispy treats is never easy. So sticky and so messy. Sweet time with your little one!

Ha ha ha ha...still they are tasty and I'm sure she had a wonderful time even if she thought they looked like dogs..ha ha ha. Last time I was with my two year old grandson we played with four colors of play dough which he combined to make a colorful snowman...ha ha ha.
