This year I thought about not making a fun dessert for New Year's Day meal. Because I had been under the weather quite a bit, I thought I'd just forgo any thing too extravagant. And then I was catching up on some blog reading during lunch on what was the deadest week at work, when I came across P.S. I Made This and their Rice Krispie Champagne Treat! I had forgotten how easy it was to make Rice Krispie treats and decided this was simple enough to give a go!
After melting the butter and the marshmallow, I added the green food coloring then the Rice Krispies.
Then, per the instructions, I scooped out the green crispies ball, doused my hands in Pam and started sculpting the bottle shape. Turned out not too shabby and I even had enough to make a tiny one, albeit janky one, for Winston!
Now, here is where the perfect execution of this dessert got thwarted by Fruit Roll-up. Our Kroger only had two choices for Fruit Roll-ups: Mystery Flavor blue ones or an assortment of flavors and colors. I chose the assortment and headed home. As I started unrolling the Roll-ups I noticed, my to my chagrin, that the kind I purchased were covered in tongue tattoos! That's right, you remember them... You hold the Fruit Roll-up on your tongue and the picture gets transferred there. Fun at lunch time in the 4th grade, not fun for a classy Rice Krispie dessert! Thankfully, we had some silver edible decorative spray (for cookies and cakes) and I sprayed the heck out of the Fruit Roll Up.
As you can seen, mine did not turn out as polished or fancy as P.S. I Made This... but I'm fairly certain it tasted just as good!
Still proud of my creation either way!!
