How cute are these Cookie Monster Rice Krispie Treats!

These desserts are easy to create using store-bought cereal treat bars, a can of blue frosting, some extra-large candy eyes, and Tootsie Rolls. You can even put tiny cookies in Cookie Monster’s Mouth. I used mini Nutter Butters, but any small cookie will do.

Step 1

Unwrap Rice Krispies Treats.

Step 2

Squeeze blue cake icing over the top of the cereal treat bar. Use a small spoon or fork to create the furry look on Cookie Monster. To do this press the spoon into the frosting and pull up, creating spikes. Do this all over the frosting.

Step 3

Press two candy eyes near the top of each treat.

Use kitchen scissors to cut 2 Cookie monster Mouths out of each Tootsie Roll then press the candy mouths onto the frosted treats.

Step 4

Use kitchen scissors to cut 2 Cookie monster Mouths out of each Tootsie Roll then press the candy mouths onto the frosted treats.

NOTE: If your Tootsie Roll Midgees are nice and soft, flatten them using your fingers. If not, then unwrap them and place a few in the microwave on defrost for 5-8 seconds, just to soften them enough so they can be flattened.

Step 5

Add a small cookie using a dab of frosting, if desired, to make it look like Cookie Monster is eating a cookie. Store in an airtight container for up to a week or so.
