Ingredients

2 pkg
(10 oz., about 40) regular marshmallow
6 Tbsp
butter
12 c
rice krispies
2 Tbsp
vanilla extract

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In large saucepan melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat add 2 tsb vanilla
2
Add KELLOGG'S RICE KRISPIES cereal. Stir until well coated. (add a little at a time until well coated but not dry)
3
allow to cool briefly (not more than 7 minutes in the refrigerator...coat your hands with butter and shape Elmo, circle for the head, oval with a flat bottom for the body, Shape arms and legs. Place a dowel on the neck and attach the head, add arms place 1/4 of a dowel through "shoulder" onto body, attach legs in the same fashion. The eyes, nose and miniature cake is also made from Rice krispies but use you imagination you could use a cupcake for the cake, Styrofoam balls for the eyes and nose let your imagination go wild! Once the Elmo is formed, chill well before icing. I made a tradition butter icing the first Elmo I made I used red food coloring it took over $10.00 of food coloring to get the right color. The next time I made the Elmo cake I used dry koolaid mix and added to the butter icing and the color was perfect and the taste was awesome! Keep finished cake chilled until serving
