Ingredients Needed:
  • Rice crispy treats (see recipe below)
  • Chocolate decorator frosting in tube or homemade frosting with piping bag (see recipe below)
  • Wide mouth canning jar rim
  • Butter knife or paring knife
  • Giant "Tootsie Roll" Candy
  • Pink "Sour Punch Straws" or Shoestring Licorice
  • Regular "Hershey's" Chocolate Bars
  • Regular or Mini "M&M" Candies
  • Red "AirHeads" Candy
  • "Junior Mints"

Rice Crispy Treats recipe:
(Recipe from “Betty Crocker” cookbook)

32 large marshmallows or 3 cups mini marshmallows
¼ cup butter
½ tsp. vanilla
5 cups rice crispy cereal

Grease a 9 x 9 (or 8 x 8) inch pan. Heat marshmallows and butter in saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly until melted. Remove from heat and add vanilla. Stir in half of the cereal at a time until coated. Press into pan. Cool until firm.

Use pre-made chocolate decorator frosting in a tube, or make your own with this recipe:

1 Tbsp. Solid shortening or butter
1 Tbsp. Milk
1/4 cup of unsweetened baking cocoa
1 & 1/2 cups powdered sugar or enough to make a stiff frosting

Mix the first 3 ingredients and 1 cup of powdered sugar together. Add more powdered sugar until the frosting is stiff enough to maintain peaks. Add green liquid food coloring and mix well. (Recipe makes approx. ½ cup of frosting.)

Cut the rice crispy treats: Push circles into the rice crispy treats with the wide mouth jar rim. Use a knife to finish cutting the circles out.

Cat Treats:

  • Cut triangles from a chocolate bar using a heated knife for a clean cut. (To heat, place in a glass of hot water)
  • Cut 2 inch pieces from sour punch straws, divide each piece in half lengthwise with a sharp knife
  • Using frosting as glue, attach ears
  • Draw a mouth with frosting
  • Attach the nose and eyes
  • Attach the whiskers (Use very small dots of frosting so that it does not show around the whiskers)

Dog Treats:

  • Cut 1” and 2” inch sections of the large tootsie roll. Roll them out with a rolling pin
  • Trim them for the type of dog ear you want to add

  • Cut a 1” piece of red airhead candy, divide that piece in half, then trim the corners off one end and round the other end creating a teardrop shape
  • Using the frosting as glue, attach the ears and tongue
  • Draw a mouth with frosting
  • Attach the nose and eyes

Individually wrap them in plastic wrap,
put a label or gift tag on them and give as valentine cards or party favors.
