Halloween is just around the corner, so I thought maybe I can create something for the occasion. The Jelly mould looks so much like the top part of the hat so I used them to make the hat. They are simple enough that your children can make them with you and decorate it whichever way they like it. This is my first time trying to make something with rice krispies and man, it is a challenge. It took me two days just to make these two hats and I suck at decorating it. It looks more like kids’ hats rather than witch hats. Anyway, I gave them to my friend kids and I hope they like it.
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate
2 tbsp butter
3 cups marshmallow
5 cup rice krispies
Some candies for decoration
Some melted chocolate for decoration
1. In a large saucepan melt chocolate and butter over low heat. Add in marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat and add in the rice krispies. Stir until well coated. Let it cool down slightly.
2. Lightly spray the inside of the jelly mould with some non-stick spray. Do the same to a baking pan. Lightly butter your hands. Take some the rice krispies mixture and press it into the side of the mould. Set it aside.
3. Press the rest of the mixture into a baking pan to make a flat sheet. Let it cool down and harden. Cut it into 4 ¾” disk for the hat brim. Remove the rice krispies from the jelly mould and attached it to the hat brim with some melted chocolate.
4. Set it aside to harden. At this stage you can decorate it which every design you want. For me I just decorate it with some candies.
