Zoulah's Rice Krispies Bricks

 
Zoulah wishes you a Happy Halloween and Fall Season with these fun Rice Krispies Bricks.  Well, of course they don't have to be for Halloween, but Zoulah has a tendency to doll everything up for Halloween during the HER holiday!  These are not your small little Rice Krispie squares!  They are monster-sized bricks, big enough for sharing.  Zoulah always likes people to share during the Halloween season.
 
She just loves how the Halloween sprinkles look on these bricks.
 
 
So she wants to share with you how to make the bricks.  She is cackling because it is soooo super simple.  She just took two Dollar Store glass containers.
 
 
She made up a batch of Rice Krispies:
 
6 cups Rice Krispies
40 regular marshmallows(10 ounce bag) or 4 cups miniature marshmallows
3 tablespoons butter
 
In a large sauce pan melt butter over low to medium heat.  Then add marshmallows and cook until melted, then quickly add the Rice Krispies and stir until well mixed.
 
Then she took the mixture, while warm, and pressed it firmly into the glass containers. 

 
Then she took a knife and ran it along the inside of the glass container to help remove the Rice Krispies Bricks.    The standard Rice Krispies recipe will make four bricks.  After removal, you can reshape them with your hands to your liking.
 
 
 
Toppings:  Zoulah used milk and white chocolate and caramel.  She first melted the milk chocolate and white chocolate chips.  Then she cut out a small hole in the corner of a Ziploc bag.  Then she loaded the chocolate into the baggie and just drizzled it over the brick.  For the caramel, she used Kraft caramels, melted them, and then just drizzled it by loading the caramel on a spoon applying the caramel with back and forth motions.  Next she added Halloween Sprinkles before the toppings dried. 
 
 
Then she melted some candy melts and then dipped the end of a CUTE sucker stick into the candy melts and then pushed it through the center of the brick.  Zoulah found the CUTE sucker sticks at Wal-Mart.
 
 
Okay, so by now you know that Zoulah loves to doll up things for Halloween.  So she added some little Halloween signs.  She just punched a hole and fitted the sign on the sucker sticks.  Then she tied some ribbon to the sucker sticks.  She loved the presentation....
 

 
The High School swim team was having a yard and bake sale so Zoulah put the Rice Krispies Bricks in cellophane bags.  Because she was taking them to the sale, she took the ribbons off the sucker stick (she didn't want sticky ribbons) and tied them to the sucker stick on the outside of the cellophane bags.
 
 
 
Zoulah wanted to show you a few of her projects she has done so far this Halloween season.
 

Zoulah promises you she has much more Halloween Fun in her "magic apron."

This is such a cute idea Joni. I have those glass square vases sitting in my family room from the wedding centerpieces. What a great thing to use to mold the bricks.

Great idea. I love super thick ones and have seen them commercially but didn't know how to make them. Your little signs are so cute too! What a great thing to sell.

Very cute idea Joni! I might make these since I have a large amount of Halloween sprinkles that I don't know what to do with ;o)
