  • melt the butter in a medium saucepan
  • add the 4 cups of marshmallows and stir until smooth
  • remove from heat
  • pour your cereal in a large bowl and quickly add the hot marshmallow
  • Stir, stir and stir some more, until it’s all folded in
  • line the baking pan with wax paper, I always spray it with the butter just to be safe
  • pour the warm rice kripies mixture into the wax lined pan and spread out
  • use a silicone spatula to even the top out
  • now that the rice krispies has formed to the pan, lift the wax paper out and onto a work surface
  • spray the cookie cutter with butter and start cutting out circles 
  • you’ll have leftover rice krispies. You can mold them to make more or eat them 🙂

Decorating the circles to make them into lambs:
The really fun part!

  • grab some more wax paper and set it out on the counter to place the circles onto

Ears:

  • cut 1 dozen mini marshmallows at a diagonal, and stick the sticky part from the center into the pink crystals

Putting it all together

Fluffy hair:

  • spread vanilla frosting over the top 1/2 of your circle
  • Place the lamb ears a little above the bottom of the frosting 
  • place the mini marshmallows upright all across the vanilla frosting 

Face:

  • use a dab of vanilla frosting as glue for the mini M&M eyes, and the pink jelly bean nose
  • Use your black frosting to make a smile under the nose – basically an uppercase J and a backwards one
