Penguin Rice Krispie Treats
Aren’t they the cutest little treats you have ever seen? I am in love!
And the best part is how incredibly easy these penguin treats are to make — no fancy decorating skill required.
Getting all your ingredients and supplies together is the most difficult part (and it just requires shopping). Making them is a breeze!
How to Make Penguin Rice Krispie Treats
Start by gathering everything that you will need: Rice Krispie Treats, black candy melts, white candy melts, candy eyes, and orange M&Ms.
To save time we used pre-made Rice Krispies Treats for this recipe. But, you could totally make your own if you want you this bakery-style Rice Krispies treats recipe. It’s your call.
You will also need popsicle sticks and either parchment or wax paper to make these cute little creatures.
Then, putting the penguin treats together is as easy peasy.
- Simply coat each Rice Krispie Treat in melted candy melts,
- add eyes.
- add a nose and a belly,
- and finally add 2 feet.
