In case you were not aware, we are coming up on one of my favorite holidays - National Snack Day. Some people call it the Super Bowl, but I prefer NSD because let's face it...Super Bowl parties are just an excuse to eat an inappropriate amount of snacks and not feel guilty about it. It's a great friggin' day!
And if you have been itching to show off your new baking skills, or just really want an excuse to bake, this is a great opportunity to do it! And what better way than a Game Day Rice Krispy Cake?!
If you're not convinced yet, let me give you a few more reasons as to why this is a VERY VERY good idea...
1. There is a mini football made from an almond. It doesn't get much cuter than that.
2. Everyone likes Rice Krispy Treats (if they don't they are a monster).
3. It is totally Gluten Free for all of your annoying friends.
4. There are a LOT of sprinkles involved :)
5. All your friends and family will be super impressed with your skills.
So it's settled. THIS will be your contribution to National Snack Day this year!
And a few quick tips on how to make this the best it can be. First, start with the sprinkle section first. I did it the other way around and it was a mistake. Second, have a cup of hot water on hand while decorating. One you have spread out the green icing, dip the spatula or knife into the hot water and smooth out the green icing. The hot tool will give you that super smooth look. Third, use a ruler to get those super straight lines. But DO NOT place the ruler all the way down onto the green icing. You will ruin all the smoothing you just did. I laid one end of the ruler on the sprinkles, and the other end on the edge of the opposite side of the pan. Use the ruler as your guide!
*Makes about 25 - 30 treats
Aw, man! I'm trying to be good and now you make me want to "bake" Lindsay's Confetti Mallow Treats. (I don't even need to make them look like a football field ... I'm just craving those sprinkles!)
I think you should give it a try! Everything is fine in moderation!!
Best super bowl idea. Love the crowd!
