We also picked up this pumpkin pan, it was $9.97.
They made two batches of Rice Krispie treats. If you have not made these before they are really easy. My 12 year old made these batches. It took two batches to make what you see in the picture.
When the rice krispies were hot, I pressed them into the pan.
The kids helped by putting the sucker sticks into the treats. I suggested dipping the sticks into the melted chocolate first then sticking them into the treats. We let them harden for a little while.
This kid is a pro. He ate about as many as he helped fix.
While they were hardening a little more he chopped the almond bark and melted it on the stove. You can use the microwave but I told him I was set in my ways and so we do it this way 🙂 Just heat it slowly or you will burn it.
Then get the kids and start dipping them. You can do whatever colors you like, dip them a little or all the way. We did both. The kids had an easier time just dipping the tops and adding sprinkles.
My kids do this stuff all the time with their Mom and so they were helping me!
We started getting fancy and adding the pre-made figures you can buy at the store.
My 8 year old (mini Martha Stewart) got the fanciest and was making Frankenstein. I thought it was Elvis, so it is a good thing I didn’t say anything and let her talk!
We bagged them in the $.97 treat bags and tied with twist ties. I am sure you can add ribbon but I am just able to tie my shoes, ribbons are too much trouble 🙂
