Read The Box

For the Rice Krispy treats, we followed the simple directions on the box of rice krispies – Melt 3 tablespoons butter, add 10 oz mini marshmallows – stir until melted. Add 6 cups of rice krispies and stir to coat. Press into a greased pan and let cool. Cut into squares and prepare the frosting.

Baby Alert! It’s hard to resist the frosting…
Make The Frosting

For the frosting, I used my go-to basic buttercream recipe – 1/2 cup softened butter, 1/2 cup shortening, and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract. Combine. Add 4 cups of powdered sugar – one cup at a time – in a large mixing bowl. Add 1 to 2 tablespoons milk until your frosting is at your desired consistency and then add the food dye. You want the frosting to be stiff enough to stand up a bit and look like grass.

Create Grass! Thanks, Wilton! 

To make grass, you will need Wilton decorating tip # 233. I love this tip. It is forgiving – trust me when I tell you that it is hard to mess up grass. I used this tip to make my football field mini cupcakes and even my kids helped with the grass making.

My pro-tip for making grass … just go fast! Don’t overthink it. Grass is grass.

Add Some Decorations – Hershey’s Eggs

After you have made beautiful looking grass on top of your rice krispy squares, add a few colorful Hershey’s chocolate eggs. Could this project get any simpler? My kids loved helping to make the grass and placing the eggs around the squares – and, of course, eating the chocolate eggs while they worked.

Enjoy!
