Blue Raspberry Rice Krispie Treats

Blue Raspberry Rice Krispie Treats by The Sweet Chick
I'm in a blue mood, but that's a good thing.  These Blue Raspberry Rice Krispie Treats were super easy and fun to make.  The blue color is so pretty for Easter, but could work for other parties as well.  I can't believe Easter is almost here.  This will be our first Easter without family around.  We will probably get together with some friends to celebrate.  My daughter is looking forward to the Easter Egg Hunt and her basket of treats. 
I found these Blue Raspberry Campfire Mallow Bursts at Walmart and had to give them a try.  Last year I had found Lemon Meringue ones and made Lemon Meringue Rice Krispie Treats with them.  So why not Blue Raspberry Rice Krispie Treats.  For added flavor I found Duncan Hines Frosting Creations Flavor Mixes in Blue Raspberry.

I used one packet of flavoring mix with the cereal mixture and one packet with the frosting starter.  So it's double the blue raspberry flavor.  I added some sprinkles for decorations and cut them into squares.

Now if you are feeling a little more creative or looking for something to do with the kids, you can grab some cookie cutters and make different shapes. 

I find it easier to cut out the shape first, then frost the treats.  For the bunny face, I used mini marshmallows, Wilton candy eyes, and Wilton Cookie Icing in black to decorate.  I cut a pink mini marshmallow in half to make the nose.  Then I cut another mini marshmallow on the diagonal lengthwise to make the inside of the ears.  You just cut,  then smoosh and stretch it a little by hand to shape it.  I know, so technical, huh? I used black icing to make the whiskers and mouth.  I used my cake decorating brush to paint on the lines.  You could probably use a toothpick also.  Although if you can find black licorice strings, I am sure that would work out better.

What kid doesn't like a fluffy blue bunny treat?  Especially one that turns your tongue blue when you eat it.  My son thought it was pretty funny that his tongue was blue.

Or you can just cut out and frost an Easter egg shape and add some sprinkles.  Less work and just as cute.  Whichever way you choose to decorate your treats, they will all taste the same.

Now I must say, these treats are pretty sweet. They taste like blue raspberry candy.  Which is good, but I am not a big candy fan.  I prefer some dark chocolate.  My daughter loves candy and she couldn't wait to eat one of these after I was done taking photos.  I also gave some to the neighbor's boys who loved them.  These are definitely kid friendly.
