Supplies –

Follow the recipe and instruction below from the recipe card. It’s super easy. Just make a batch of Rice Krispie treats and color them green. This post shows how easy it is.Allow them to set and cut into rectangles. If you’re using the recommended 9×9” pan, you should get about 6 treats. Melt your coating chocolate with the coconut oil. The coconut oil will make the coating chocolate a great shine. If you don’t have it, don’t worry about it. Dip one end into the purple and allow it to set.Dip the other end into the brown candy melts and then dip straight into the brown Jimmie sprinkles. Use your black food gel and create the eyebrows by drawing straight lines pointing inward to each other. Use the same gel and add them to the candy eyes and adhere them on the Hulk Rice Krispie Treats. These are the perfect treat to have for an Avenger party or even your biggest Hulk fan. I can’t wait for Avengers: Infinity War to be released into theaters.

Ingredients

  • 5 tablespoons butter, divided
  • candy decorating eyes
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sprinkles
  • 1/2 cup dark brown candy melts
  • 3 teaspoons coconut oil, divided
  • 1 1/2 cups purple candy melts
  • 4 cups Rice Krispies
  • 3 drops Kelly Green food coloring
  • 27 large marshmallows
  • black ready-made decorating frosting

Instructions

  1. Coat a 9x9" square pan with 2 tablespoons of butter and set aside.
  2. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt 3 tbsp butter and add all of your marshmallows. Stir until marshmallow is completed melted.
  3. Color marshmallow mix with green food coloring and add rice cereal. Mix until thoroughly combined.
  4. Evenly pat your cereal treats to the base of your coated pan. You can use a piece of wax paper to smooth it out (and so that your hands don’t get too sticky).
  5. Allow for it to set (about one hour) and cut into rectangles. Line a baking sheet with wax paper.
  6. Microwave your purple candy melts and 2 tsp of coconut oil in 30-second intervals until melted. Dip the bottom of each of your cereal treats (about ¼ of the way up) and set on the lined baking sheet.
  7. Microwave your black candy melts and 1 tsp of coconut oil in 30-second intervals until melted. Dip the top of each of your cereal treats and add sprinkles. This will act as the Hulk’s disheveled hair.
  8. Using your black buttercream, stick on the candy eyes on the green portion of the cereal treats. Draw black buttercream lines above the candy eyes – these will act as the Hulk’s angry eyebrows.

Early Man Movie Review

February 13, 2018

Have you been wanting to see the new Early Man movie? 

My kids and I had the opportunity to attend a press screening of the new Early Man movie that is being released on February 16, 2018. This movie was funny, had a lot of teachable moments and the claymation is always fantastic.From the creators of Wallace & Gromit and Chicken Run, Early Man tells the story of a group of cavemen whose valley gets taken over by the the evil Lord Nooth. Football (or soccer to us Americans) is a sacred game and it was the game that their ancestors invented – however, they don’t know how to play at all.

Dug has dreams of fighting more than just rabbits. He has thoughts about doing something big and fighting mammoths. In a lot of ways, the professional football team is considered the mammoth of soccer. They don’t know how they’re going to win to get their village back but they are determined.This movie is child-friendly yet has a few subtle adult references that they won’t pick up on. My favorite character is Hognob, the loveable sidekick who is also a pig. He’s funny, he’s competitive and he just wants to play. He finally gets his chance and it’s hilarious.

I took all four of my kids. My teenager liked it but probably had hoped for more action. My 10 year-old sports fanatic loved it. My 8 year-old daughter was the one who really wanted to see this and she was delighted the whole time. I also took my 2 year-old and to my surprise, sat entertained the whole movie.It’s the perfect length of time to keep the kids engaged and entertained. With a run time of 100 minutes, these are the length of family movies I like.

There weren’t many times in the movie where it dragged on or seemed like a scene lasted longer than it needed to. It was perfect. I would see this again but I don’t know if I’d buy it to watch at home. If it was available on Netflix I’d definitely watch it again.
