Homemade Disney-Pixar Incredibles Rice Krispie Treats

June 15, 2018

I have waited 14 long years for the release of Disney-Pixar’s Incredibles II movie. I know every child is going to want to have an Incredibles Party this year so I created these Incredibles Rice Krispie Treats. This post contains affiliate links. Thank you for your support.

Make your Incredibles Party pop with these easy Incredibles Rice Krispie Treats. They pair perfectly with my Incredibles Oreos that I made a few weeks ago and just in time for the new Incredibles II movie release.

Perfect for an Incredibles party for any superhero. #DisneySMMC #Incredibles #DisneyFoodGather all your ingredients and set them aside. Melt together the butter and marshmallows and then remove from the heat. You can use your microwave as well but I like to make them on the stovetop. After you’ve melted the butter and marshmallows, add the cereal and the red food coloring. Give it a good mix and place them into an 8×8″ square pan. You can line it with parchment or use some non-stick vegetable oil spray. Making the I’s is something that I did with the Incredibles Oreo recipe. Just use some fondant and set them aside. You’ll want to spread the black icing just like the Incredibles Oreos and you’re more than welcome to just use yellow icing if you’re confident in your icing skills. That’s not something I am great at so I use the fondant.Create these amazing Disney-Pixar Incredibles Rice Krispie Treats.

Ingredients
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 3 cups mini marshmallows
  • 4 cups Rice Krispies
  • 1 tbsp red gel food coloring
  • 4 oz yellow fondant
  • cornstarch for rolling
  • black buttercream
Instructions
  1. Line a square pan (8x8) with wax paper and set aside. In a medium-sized pot, melt butter over medium heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted.

  2. Add red food coloring and mix until completely colored. Add rice cereal into the mix and fold until cereal and marshmallow mixture are thoroughly combined.

  3. Evenly press the cereal treat mixture into your pan and allow to set.

  4. In the meantime, make fondant shapes. Roll out your yellow fondant so that it’s about ¼ an inch thick and cut out rectangular shapes, about an inch long and 1/3 of an inch wide. Cut one end of each rectangle at an angle.

    Using the end tip of a frosting tip, cut out mini circles.

  5. Cut each cereal treat into rectangles. Frost each one with a solid circle (on a slight angle) with your black buttercream. Decorate with your fondant pieces.

I just saw the movie this opening weekend and I usually don’t feel like they knocked my socks off. They did this time.

Supplies

I’ve been using the Cricut machines for over 4 years now and I cannot express how beautiful the new Wisteria Cricut Explore is. It has a metallic sheen to it and it looks beautiful in my craft room along with its sister, the Cricut Maker. It fits perfect for the Pantone color of the year, Ultra Violet. I also love the Bluetooth capability so that I can easily use my mobile phone to cut my project. My desktop conked out a few months ago so my husband and I are sharing a laptop, not ideal but, it’s working because I have my mobile devices to use my Cricuts.Create these awesome DIY Avenger Masks using your Cricut Wisteria, available exclusively at JOANN stores. #ad #CricutWisteria #CricutMadeI began by using the Print Then Cut method for my Cricut.To start, you want to first calibrate your machine so that you get a good, close cut. You also want your bleed lines to be on so that your cut line will be on the printed project.Create these awesome DIY Avenger Masks using your Cricut Wisteria, available exclusively at JOANN stores. #ad #CricutWisteria #CricutMadeAfter you’ve printed your masks, you will place them on your included Light Grip Mat and set the smart dial to Cardstock. Your machine will begin by reading the registration lines and then it will begin cutting. With your Explore models, you want to use white paper to print your items on. The Cricut Printable Vinyl is great for making stickers. I also love their thicker Printable Sticker Paper but it will not pull through my HP 8610 Printer.Create these awesome DIY Avenger Masks using your Cricut Wisteria, available exclusively at JOANN stores. #ad #CricutWisteria #CricutMadeThe easiest way to remove any paper from your Cricut mats is to bend your mat backwards and let the paper peel off. If you pull the paper directly, you will curl your paper and you can’t move on to your other part of the project until that’s resolved.Create these awesome DIY Avenger Masks using your Cricut Wisteria, available exclusively at JOANN stores. #ad #CricutWisteria #CricutMadeThe cut file includes the hole so that you can easily add the elastic or twine. My son is two so there is no way he’s going to hold still enough for me to tie it on. He just holds it up and takes it right off. That’s why I love that they’re paper and easily made, I don’t feel bad if he only likes it for a few minutes. He’ll come back to it off-and-on for days.Create these awesome DIY Avenger Masks using your Cricut Wisteria, available exclusively at JOANN stores. #ad #CricutWisteria #CricutMade

DIY Hulk Rice Krispie Treats

April 16, 2018

Prepare for the release of AVENGERS: Infinity War with these super cute and easy Hulk Rice Krispie Treats. Make them for a birthday party or just to enjoy a movie screening.This post contains affiliate links. Thank you for your support.

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.[recipe id=”6088″]

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.
