Aren't these little lambies just so darling?
I had to share them with you because a couple of my kids put them together the other night.
They are a sweet treat and a sweet Valentine!
(Original idea from Thriving magazine.)
7-8 cups crispy rice cereal
1 stick butter (1/2) cup
1 package mini marshmallows (save a few)
1 tsp vanilla
For the decorating:
1 small tube of black decorator icing.
a few saved mini marshmallows
Melt butter in pot on medium heat.
Add marshmallows and vanilla and stir until melted. Your mixture will look like a gooey mess.
Remove from heat as soon as marshmallows are melted.
Add cereal and mix well with a wooden spoon.
Wait about 4-5 minutes before handling....it will be hot!
Lay out a sheet of wax paper on your counter.
Mold the body of the lambie and a small head.
Stick them together and set on the wax paper.
Cut a mini marshmallow in half for the ears and add.
When completely cooled (1 hour) add eyes and nose with piping and pretzel legs.
*Be sure to use the whole pretzel for the legs and push them in as far as they will go!
I only had broken pretzels....and look what happens!
Poor little lambies fall down.
You can add a sweet message, like "God loves ewe!" or "Will ewe be my Valentine?"
"When I hear the confession of a young married man or woman, and they refer to their son or daughter, I ask ... 'tell me, do you play with your children? Do you waste time with your children?'
