- Rice Krispies Treat Sheet – Get these online, or at stores like Walmart. You can also make your own Rice Krispie Treats if you’d like. These will also work with with Fruity Pebbles Treats!
- Pink Candy Melts – You can order candy melts online, or pick them up at your local craft or party store. This will also work with the same amount of white chocolate. Just dye it a pink with some pink food gel.
Step by Step Instructions
- Begin by unwrapping the Rice Krispies Treat sheet. Using the large star shaped cookie cutter, press firmly into the sheet to cut out a starfish. Repeat this until you’ve used up as much of the Rice Krispie sheet as possible.
- Next, pour the pink candy melts into a large microwaveable bowl. Melt the candy according to package directions, or microwave for 20 second increments, stirring after each interval.
- Once melted, use a fork or chocolate dipping tool to dip a star-shaped treat into the pink chocolate, making sure it’s fully covered. Let the excess chocolate drip back into the bowl, and allow it to cool on a parchment lined baking sheet. Repeat this step until all the stars are covered in chocolate. Let them cool at room temperature for 10 minutes, or until the chocolate has hardened.
Tips And Advice
Storage – Store the Starfish Rice Krispie Treats, wrapped individually at room temperature for 4-5 days.
Here are some of the materials you’ll need to make these star shaped Rice Krispie Treats.
- Star shaped Cookie Cutter
- Microwave Safe Bowls
- Forks or Chocolate Dipping Tools
- Baking Sheet
- Parchment Paper
Equipment Tips – Clean the star shaped cookie cutter in between each use. You will have an easier time letting the Rice Krispie Treat slide out if you do this.
You can make more Starfish with the leftover scraps of Rice Krispie Treats. Just flatten the leftovers between two pieces of parchment paper to form a new sheet! Repeat this until you’ve used up as much as you can.
These Rice Krispie Treats can be stored for up to 4-5 days at room temperature, so you can make them ahead about 3-4 days. However, I would recommend making them the day of or the day before serving, because fresh Rice Krispies are the best Rice Krispies.
Nope! They can sit out at room temperature in an airtight container.
