cinnamon rice krispie treats.....!

cinnamon rice krispie treats

.....so how about some layered ones for thanksgiving.....?...and on a side note....wow thanksgiving is this week...wasn't it just summer a couple of weeks ago?...time definitely moves at warp speed all the time now....

....and yeah yeah yeah.....i know i tried turkeys again after saying no more....but these are "abstract" turkeys and if you don't think it looks like a turkey....'cause i can see how you might not get that....just pretend they are decorated with fall colors or something....!


....start with a recipe for rice krispie treats....and make 2 batches (but make one batch at a time)....add about 1 tablespoon of cinnamon sugar to the butter/marshmallow mixture in each batch...also tint one of the butter/marshmallow mixtures orange (or whatever color you like).....then layer one in the bottom of a 9 x 13 pan (coat with non-stick spray)....press firmly down with wax paper (which btw sticks more than i thought it should...so you may want to spray with cooking spray too or maybe parchment would be better?).....

.....then add the other tinted batch of treats and press firmly down....and let set for awhile (or put in fridge).....and cut into squares....i found using a metal spatula worked the best for this.....

....attach "turkey" accents with some melted candy wafers/melts....tail feathers are candy coated sunflower seeds (love these things...used them here and here too!).....body is a milk chocolate morsel...and the gobbler is just some red candy melt...

.....and you get some layered rice krispie treats dressed up fancy for turkey day....and just in time for the kiddo's thanksgiving day feast party today....!....i hope they went over well....you never know with kids....but i love it because they are just brutally honest....."yuck they are the worst thing i've ever eaten in my whole life" kinda honest....!...but i like that...much better than the "honest" that some grown ups dish out like...."wow great outfit...by the way have you ever thought about wearing some earrings that match or a belt that coordinates..."...or "your son is so adorable...you could totally be his nanny..."....what the what is that about?....not that any of these conversations have happened....all theoretical but i'll take the straight up honesty of a 5 year old any day....!
