Patriotic Krispie Treats ~ A Star Cookie Cutter Challenge

Some treats are a no-brainer.

So easy and simple that they basically make themselves.

This isn’t exactly that.

The idea is simple, and really so are the steps, but whenever there are candy melts involved I hit a hiccup.

I wish I were an expert candy-melterer like Bakerella.  But somewhere between the melting and the tapping something gets lost in translation.

So I settle for a more “rustic” candy coating.  Textured, if you will.

Especially trying to cover a bumpy krispie treat in smooth candy coating.

I dare you to make it work.

Anyway, let’s talk Patriotic Krispie Treats.

Easy idea, and if you can embrace the rustic finish, like I have, you’re golden!

All you have to do is make your krispies.  I used these Brownie Batter Krispies.

Using a star cookie cutter I cut my krispies out.
A star cookie cutter on a batch of rice krispie treatsI melted some red, white and blue candy melts and “painted” it on the krispie.

If you made plain krispie treats, you could even omit the white candy melts.

And if you want you can put them on a stick…just press the stick in when the candy melts are still wet.

That’s it!

Now, my sweet friend, Callye from Sweet Sugarbelle has challenged a few of her nearest and dearest to a “Star Cookie Cutter” Challenge.

Well, not so much a challenge, but a fun way to see how lots of creative people would use the same cookie cutter.

Isn’t that a fun idea?

Thanks so much for including me Callye!

Now, let’s check out what the other ladies did with their cutter!

I love all of your creative way to use the cookie cutter. I think I have a star cutter and will have to dig it out!

These are adorable!! I use candy melts ALOT! The thing I’ve found that works the best is melt them on 50% power, checking every 45 seconds or so, and if you need it thinned a little bit add in just a teaspoon or less of oil. There’s also a product called FLO-COAT by AmeriColor that works well with candy melts, but a drop will do ya! I’d like to invite you over to Sweet & Simple Sunday to share your beautiful creations!!
