These colorful Rice Krispie Treat Balloons are super easy to make for a birthday party. Kids will love these sweet birthday treats.
For my last birthday party post I decided to put together a super simple, quick, and easy recipe (well, I wouldn't even call it a recipe, it's just a decorating idea, really.)
I am very aware of the fact that many of my recipes here at Hungry Happenings take time and patience to re-create and I try to offer alternatives for those occasions when you just don't have either.
When you look at the picture above, would you imagine that these festive little balloons take minutes to make using three store-bought products? They may even be items you already have on hand. If not, go to the store, and buy some Kellogg's Rice Krispies Treats, Fruit Roll-Ups, and Twizzlers Pull & Peel. Unwrap a treat, shape it into a circle, wrap it in a roll-up, and tie on a Twizzler. Done!

Just follow the recipe in the link provided, cut them into the shapes needed, and use them in the steps below:
Cut Rice Krispie Treat balloons.
Unwrap Rice Krispies Treats. Smash all four edges of the treat so that you have curved edges.
If you want a perfectly round balloon, press the treat into a 2 ¼" round cookie cutter. Otherwise, just smash and shape the treat into a round or oval shape.
Unwrap a Fruit Roll-Up and lay one on top of a round treat with a corner pointing upwards.
Cover treats with fruit rolls.
Turn this treat over, so that the Fruit Roll-Up is on the work surface and the treat is facing up.
Fold over the top point of the fruit roll then begin folding in the fruit roll all around the treat, leaving the bottom open.
Turn the treat face up and pinch the bottom part of the fruit roll gently in the center.
Add licorice strings.
Peel the Twizzlers Pull & Peels apart into individual strings.
Tie a Pull & Peel string onto each of the Rice Krispie Treat Birthday Balloons.
