I can’t remember the last time I made a port-Rey-t out of food. However, when Dave and Joely brought “Rey’s Krispies Treats” to our Star Wars party, I’m af-Rey-d I simply couldn’t ref-Rey-n myself from taking their idea, and making one of The Force Awakens heroine. I p-Rey they forgive me for appropriating their punny name!
The Rey-cipe is simple and pretty st-Rey-tforward. The port-Rey-t didn’t take very long to make, but since the kids “helped,” the kitchen was in total disar-Rey when we were done. Oh well!
Despite the mess, I totally recommend making a t-Rey with Rey’s Krispies Treats for your next Star Wars Party! Your guests will all holler “What a g-Rey-t idea!!!” Add a few princess Leia Buns st-Rey-t from out of the oven, and an ar-Rey of Imperial S’mores, and I’m sure they will Rey-t your “Dessert Planet of Jakku” display (post to come) at least an 8.
Just one suggestion, be sure make a make a couple of batches, ‘cuz your guest might end up i-Rey-t if you run out…
- 5 1/3 cups Marshmallows
- 4 Tbsps Butter
- 4 cups Rice Krispies
- 4 cups Cocoa Krispies
- Handful Chocolate Chips
- Cooking Sp-Rey
- Red Icing or Candy Melts (which is what he we had at home, and they worked g-Rey-t)
- 9″ round and a 9×13″ pan
- Assorted pots, pan and spatulas
- Lightly sp-Rey pans with cooking sp-Rey.
- Heat up butter (I used 2 pots, half in each)
- Put half of the marshmallows in each pot, stir until melted.
- Throw in a handful of chocolates chips in to the batch that will be used with the Cocoa Krispies.
- In 1 bowl, mix the regular Rice Krispies with half the marshmallow mix, in other bowl, mix the Cocoa Krispies and the other half of the mixture.
- Form the face in the round pan…make sure the mixture is cool to the touch…you’ll need to use your hands.
- Add the chocolate mixture and form the hair. Put the remaining mixture in the rectangular pan. The chocolate left-overs will be used for the Rey’s buns, the white… for snacking.
- Press to make as even as possible
- Once cooled, turn over the pans – you want to use the bottom side up.
- Cut the buns from the left overs it he rectangular pan.
- Melt some chocolate and candy melts and draw the eyes and mouth with a chopstick.
- If you want you can melt a few marshmallow in the microwave and use that as a gel to keep the buns in place.
Then, once they are Finn-ished, be sure to share with all your f-Ren-ds!
The hardest part when making these is to rest-Rey-n yourself from taking a sample bite or 2.
This is easiest to make with 2 people. One that mixes the the ingredients, and one that melts the stuff, and presses the mixture into the molds. This stuff hardens quickly!
