Ingredients
  • 6 tablespoons European-Style salted butter
  • 16 ounces Kraft Jet-Puffed Marshmallows
  • 7 cups Kellogg's Rice Krispie Cereal
  • 1 Wilton DIY-Lish Cute Critters Decorating Kit
  • 2 ounces white candy melts, melted
Instructions
  1. Melt butter and marshmallows in a large saucepan set over low heat then stir in the cereal until evenly coated.

  2. Gently spread into an even layer in a well buttered 9 x 13 inch pan.

  3. Allow to cool for at least one hour.

  4. Cut 12 circles out of the treats using the 2-inch round cutter from the DIY-Lish Decorating Kit.

  5. Knead then roll out the fondant to about 1/16 of an inch thickness. Mix together, in a 1 to 6 ratio, a small amount of white and brown fondant to create tan fondant.

  6. For each bear cut out 1 black circle, 2 black teardrops, and 3 tan teardrops.

    Attach one tan teardrop to the black circle using water and attach the other tan teardrops to the black teardrops, cutting off the tips, creating the ears.

    Press two black candies on either side of the tan teardrop creating the eyes.

    Roll a tiny piece of black fondant into an oval and attach, using water, along the bottom edge of the tan teardrop creating the nose.

    Use a toothpick to create two nostrils.

  7. Brush a thin layer of melted candy melts on the top of a rice krispie treat and attach a fondant bear face on top.

  8. Brush a small amount of candy melts onto the edge of one of the ears and press it onto the rice krispie treat along the top edge of the bears head. Repeat with the other ear.

  9. Create more fondant animals using the instructions found in the DIY-Lish Cute Critters Decorating Kit and attach them to the remaining rice krispie treats.
