DIY Mini R-ice Cream-spies: I Scream, You Scream, June is turning FIVE!

It has been exactly one week since we had June's little guests over for June's 5-yr-old birthday party, and it was SO much fun!  It was tiring, but the greatest thing we've done with her in a while -- there is nothing that brings me more joy than to see her so happy. 

And, of course, I've been behind on editing photos (some were taken by my talented sister--thank you sis!), so here they are -- the big party reveal! 

Birthday DIY #4: "Rice Creamspies"

Sorry (kind of) for my puns that are sometimes very corny, but I was excited when I came up with these Rice Krispies treats that look like mini-dipped ice cream cones!  June LOVED making this -- it's super simple, and pretty too!  The only down side is they're so pretty your guests might not want to eat them...: p

Cooking Time:
30-40 mins

Ingredients and supplies List
• Rice Krispies cereal (1 box)
• Marshmallows (1 bag)
• Butter (1/3 cup)
• Ice cream cone cookie cutter (mine is 4" tall)
• 1 (12-oz) bag of pink candy melts by Wilton
• Pyrex glass measuring cup
• sprinkles!!!
• 9" x 12" x 2" deep flat glass dish

Step 1: Make Rice Krispies treats per instructions on box
Sorry to be lazy in explaining this step, but there are a lot of places where you can find how to make this.  The main thing to note is you will need to spread out the rice krispies over a flat and 2" deep dish, so there is depth for the cookie cutter to go into.

Step 2: Cut out treats with cookie cutter
This can take a bit of effort so make sure you help your little ones do this!  We used a flat cooking utensil to help push the cookie cutter into the rice krispies.

Step 3: Melt candy melt in microwave per instructions
We found that melting candy melt in a glass Pyrex measuring cup was the best way to do this, so you can dip the "cone" part of the rice krispies treats in and fully coat it.

Step 4: Place on parchment paper, and put sprinkles on!  Let dry, and enjoy!
