How to Make rice krispie ladybugs


  • 1In large pot, melt 5 tablespoons of butter. Mix in marshmallows and stir continuously until melted.
  • 2Mix in rice cereal until all pieces are coated. Set aside for 10-15 minutes to cool.
  • 3While crispy treats are still warm, but cool enough to handle, start forming ladybug shapes.
  • 4Place spoonful of mixture in the palm of your hand to create a flat base and then use other hand to form rounded tops. Once shaped, place in fridge until completely cool.
  • 5In the meantime, mix vanilla icing with red food dye until bright red.
  • 6Once treats are cool, spread icing evenly over the top. Place chocolate chips on top for the spots and then use the tube of icing to draw the face and wings.
  • 7Serve immediately. Store in airtight container in cool, dry place. If storing in fridge, let sit for 20 minutes before eating so crispy treats can soften.
