Here’s What You’ll Need for these New Year’s Eve Rice Krispies Treat Party Hats for a Fun Kid Friendly Treat

(should make 1 dozen party hats)

  • Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat
  • Add the mini marshmallows and stir until they are melted 
  • Remove from heat and pour the cereal into the marshmallow mixture – stir and stir and stir some more until the cereal is completely coated
  • Grab some wax paper and set it on a work surface 
  • Spray your mold and quickly scoop warm mixture into the mold and push it out onto the wax paper
  • Add sprinkles while the marshmallow is still warm and sticky
  • Repeat with the rest of the cereal mixture
  • *If the mixture gets too cold, the sprinkles will not adhere as well. Warm the mixture up over low heat while stirring or transfer it to a microwave bowl and microwave on high for about 30 seconds
  • Once you have all of your triangle shaped hats decorated, you can move onto the licorice topper
  • Cut 1 inch pieces of licorice and insert a toothpick into one end 
  • pull and peel the opposite end until the licorice fans out 
  • insert the other end of the toothpick into the top of the cereal hats
  • *the licorice will try to pull itself back into a single rope – just keep pushing it back outward into a fan. This gets easier as the licorice sits out for a bit. It loses its’ elasticity 

That’s it! 

  • *A decent alternative to a snow cone mold would be to use a measuring cup that measures 1/4 cup. Spray oil on the inside of the measuring cup. Just scoop out the mixture into the cup and out onto the wax paper. Mold the hats with your hands into a pyramid shape and decorate as instructed above
