Rice Krispy Treats…
I haven’t made rice krispy treats in years. It was for Thanksgiving five years ago and they were Pumpkin Spice Rice Krispies. They were delicious but I haven’t made krispies since.
Yesterday was Rico Suave’s sister’s birthday and I wanted to bake her something special but we didn’t have a whole lot of time at the beginning of this week to do anything too intricate. I immediately thought of krispies. I wanted to make the krispies special to her and her personality since it was her birthday gift.
Hippie Gal is one of the kindest people I’ve ever met. She’s intelligent and works hard for what she has achieved in her short life. She’s free spirited & free willed. She loves to travel but also keep her feet on the ground, which means she likes interacting with locals. She’s also an incredible writer (you can visit her blog at https://hippiegal13.wordpress.com/)
She’s also into fashion. Sarah Jessica Parker is her fashion muse, so much so that she went to meet Sarah Jessica Parker and George Malkemus (President of Manolo Blahnik) at the SJP Collection release in Nordstrom. She also loves pink but not annoyingly: she prefers pink as an accessory color
I’ve had a high heel cookie cutter that has been burning a hole in my brain ever since I got it as a gift from my mother, I just haven’t had an appropriate reason to use it. Hippie Gal’s birthday was the perfect reason.
I’m not gonna lie, cutting out the heels in the krispies was a pain in the ass. The soft marshmallow would stick to the cutter and create a lot of residue all along the cutter. Rico Suave and I tried coating the cutter with powdered sugar and the powdered sugar just made it worse. What finally helped was rinsing off the cookie cutter every time it was used, and not drying it off, use it again. Water dissolves sugar so keeping the water particles on the cutter helped make a clean cut.
Once we were done with the first set, we smashed all the scraps together and reflattened the krispies to cut out more shoes. Once the krispies were dry, I mixed white chocolate, coconut oil, and pink food coloring together and dipped the front of the cookies in the chocolate. Be sure to sprinkle the sanding sugar over the chocolate right away as the chocolate dries quickly.
