Rice Krispies paint brushes are easy to make and the perfect addition for any art party! I make a lot of Rice Krispies Treats, it’s a family favorite, so sometimes I get creative to mix things up and make fun treats out of them!
I created these paint brush shaped Rice Krispies Treats as an easy fun food idea to go with my Art party paper craft collection. You can see tons of the ideas from that party below.
Paint Brush Rice Krispies Ingredients
- Kellogg’s Rice Krispies Cereal
- Butter ~ for dairy free, use vegan Smart Balance butter
- Chocolate Wafers ~ for dairy free, use tinted icing
- Wooden Ice Cream Spoons (I picked mine up at JoAnn)
- Wax Paper
Rice Krispies Paint Brushes Instructions
First of all, Kellogg’s has it down. Make your Kellogg’s Rice Krispies Treats (cereal, butter and marshmallows) using the directions on the box. Why mess with a good thing!
Here’s how you make the paint brush rice krispies treats:
- Mold Paint Brush Shape – Allow the mixture to cool from hot to warm, apply butter to your hands liberally, mold the treats into rectangles and place the shapes on a piece of wax paper to cool.
- Insert Wooden Spoon – Before the treats harden completely, insert the wooden ice cream spoons about half way.
- Dip In Chocolate – Heat the chocolate melts in a microwave safe bowl in increments of eight to nine seconds and stir between heating. Once the chocolate is completely melted, dip the Kellogg’s Rice Krispies Treats into the chocolate and allow the excess to drip off.
- Cool – Place the paint brush Rice Krispies Treats on a sheet of wax paper to dry and harden.
