Tie Rice Krispies Treats Recipe for Father’s Day
This recipe will yield 6 large Father’s Day Rice Krispies tie bars from a 9×9 pan:
- 1 cup (2 sticks) butter
- Two 10 oz. bags of marshmallows
- 10 cups Rice Krispies cereal
- 1/4 teaspoon salt (optional)
- 3 large white Airheads candies
- 6 large Airheads candies in various colors
- Spray a 9×9 pan with a non-stick coating spray and set aside.
- In a large saucepan, melt the butter over low heat.
- Add the marshmallows to the butter, stirring constantly until melted.
- Remove from heat and stir in the cereal and salt (optional) until well-coated.
- Transfer the cereal mixture to prepared pan and press down firmly.
- Cool for 30 minutes and cut into 6 large bars.
- Take 3 of the white airhead pieces and cut in half lengthwise. These 6 pieces will be used for the 6 shirt collars.
- Place each white airhead strip at the top of each Rice Krispies bar lengthwise, bringing the ends downward to form a “V” to resemble a shirt collar. Right in the middle of each bar, up at the top, fold it in half, so it looks like the back of a shirt collar.
- To make the ties, take your colored Airheads and with scissors, cut out the shape of a tie. You will only be able to get one tie out of each piece of candy. Do not discard the leftover pieces- you will need them for the tie knots.
- Place each tie on top of each bar.
- With the leftover pieces, cut out small diamond shapes that match the color of each tie. Place the tie knots on top of the tie and gently press down.
