Frosted marshmellow rice cereal treats based on the cards from Blizzard’s card game Hearthstone.
The frosting part of this treat does make some time, but making the rice cereal treats is super easy. Plus, you get to munch on rice cereal treats while doing the frosting bit, so it all works out quite nicely.
6 cups rice cereal
1 package mini marshmellows
3 tablespoons butter
1 cup frosting
Blue food coloring
Purple food coloring
Brown food coloring
Yellow food coloring
Blue sparkling food gel
Leaf decorating tip
In a large saucepan, melt the butter and mini marshmellows over low heat. Stir until melted.
When the mixture is fulled melted, add a few drops of blue food coloring.
After you’ve mixed in the blue, add a few drops of purple/violet food coloring.
Next, add the rice cereal and mix.
When the rice cereal is fully coated, scoop the mixture into a glass pan that has been sprayed with cooking spray.
Place a piece of wax paper on top and press down to smooth out any rough bits.
Allow the treats to sit until cool.
When you’re ready to decorate, flip over the glass pan and gently shake. The treats should plop right out. Trim off the curved edges, cut in half length-wise, and then into strips so you have ten treats total.
Take a cup of frosting and add a few drops of yellow and brown food coloring and mix.
Scoop the frosting into a piping bag with a leaf tip.
Take a rice treat and draw the border with frosting.
Add the inner elements.
Draw a circle and then add points to create the middle piece. Use a toothpick to nudge the points into place if need be.
Finally, add a swirl of blue food gel.
Repeat for all rice treats.
