I love Rice Krispy Treats. Let me tell you why…1. They are super easy to make. 2. They are absolutely delicious. I mean, have you ever met anyone who doesn’t like rice krispy treats? 3. They can be the base to SO many fun and cute treats! Like, for example, these mermaid rice krispy treats.

Dipping rice krispy treats are one of the most popular ways to dress up this fun treat. These mermaid rice krispy treats use the dipping technique and then take it one step further adding white chocolate scales and some white chocolate sea shells.

Overall, they are very easy to make – but these is one key thing you need to ensure your success with these. And that is quality melting chocolate.


Bad melting chocolate can result in a few different scenarios. Your chocolate can be chunky – it never gives you that smooth finish you want. It can cause “elephant skin” where the chocolate separates and creates a strange elephant skin like texture after you dip. Or, it can easily cause the chocolate to crack as it dries on your treat.

I have found that Merckens Melting Chocolate is the best when it comes to melting chocolate. It melts nicely and gives the dip a nice even coat with a smooth finish. Guittard Melting Chocolate works wells too. If you are going to go with the Wilton Candy Melts, you might run into a few of the previously mentioned problems. So if you do decide to use Wilton, make sure you have some of these handy Paramount Crystals to help thin out the melted chocolate.

One of the best parts about using melting chocolate is the fact that you can color your chocolate any color you want! But a lot of people make the mistake of using the typical water-based food coloring to try to color their chocolate. You know, the ones you use to color frosting or cake batter. The water in these will cause your chocolate to seize up and it will be ruined. So when you are coloring your melting chocolate, make SURE you use candy coloring and not regular food coloring. You can easily find these on amazon, in baking or craft stores, and even some grocery stores.

And the last thing you guys are going to need are these silicone shell molds for your sea shell bras! They are the perfect size for these Mermaids!
Happy Baking!

  • 12 cups crisped rice cereal
  • 6 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 24 oz mini marshmallows


  • 6 oz melting chocolate for seashells
  • 20 oz melting chocolate for the light green tail
  • 6 oz melting chocolate for the dark green scales
  • Candy Coloring (I used pink, purple and green)



  • In a large pot, melt butter and mini marshmallows on medium heat. Make sure you stir every 15-30 seconds until everything is melted.
  • Take the pot off the heat and add the crisped rice cereal. Stir until all the cereal is fully coated.
  • Pour mixture onto prepared parchment paper and create one even layer.
  • Place in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
  • Once the krispies are cool, remove them from the baking sheet and cut them into rectangles (4” x 2.5”).


  • In a microwave safe bowl, melt 6 oz of of melting chocolate in 30 second intervals until melted. Divide the chocolate in half.
  • Using candy coloring, color one half pink and one half purple. Fill each silicone shell cavity about half way up. Set aside to let the chocolate set.
  • Prepare a fresh sheet of parchment paper on a baking sheet or table.
  • In a deep microwave safe dish, melt 20 oz of of melting chocolate in 30 second intervals until melted.
  • Use candy coloring to color the chocolate light green.
  • Dip half of each rectangle rice krispy in the green chocolate. (It is easier if you tilt the bowl slightly to one side to pool the chocolate when you dip). Set on prepared parchment.
  • Use remaining chocolate to attach seashells to the non-dipped part of the rice krispy.
  • Set mermaids aside so the chocolate can set.
  • Prepare a piping bag with a small round piping tip. Set aside.
  • In a microwave safe bowl, melt 6 oz of of melting chocolate in 30 second intervals until melted.
  • With candy coloring, color this chocolate a dark green.
  • Place chocolate in prepared piping bag.
  • Pipe small “u” shapes across the light green chocolate.
  • Allow chocolate to set before serving.

It doesn’t matter if you are a baker, chef, content creator, or any other kind of artist.

If you are undercharging for your work, you are only hurting yourself.

Your time & money = wasted. And that sucks.

Becuase you are TALENTED. You should not just be....

-Bringing in a few bucks here and there.
-Breaking even.
-Or worse, losing money.

You deserve to be paid good $$ for your work!

But in order to actually grow your business, you have to have accurate prices.

And that’s exactly what The Ultimate Pricing Calculator helps you do. It is 100% customizable and tells you exactly what you should be charging for all your goods and services.

Time is one of our most valuable resources - especially if you run a business. Yet, so many people don’t charge for it when it comes to setting their prices.

I get it. Trying to figure out how much your time is worth is complicated.

There are a variety of factors that go into it - location, skill, demand, and more.

But we need to learn how to charge for it.

That’s why I dedicated an entire section to labor in The Ultimate Pricing Calculator. I make sure you add in your time so it is factored into the final price.

Then the calculator does all the magic math for you!

And becuase I know setting your hourly rate can be a little intimidating, I made a bonus video that helps you figure out exactly what it should be.

So tell me...how are you charging for your time right now? Do you think you should be charging more?

Requiring a deposit is a simple way to protect yourself from all the 👻 out there.

They have already agreed to pay you. So in order to start the work, you should ask for some of the money up front.

How much?

It depends on if your prices are set up correctly.

When you have accurate prices, anything from 25-50% should work just fine.

But if your prices are too low (which is the case for MOST new bakers and content creators I work with), you are still not getting enough to make this worth your time (in case they still do 👻).

If you want to see if you are undercharging, my Pricing Calculator can help you check. It’s 100% customizable and will tell you exactly what you need to be charging for each item you sell.

If you think you are undercharging - you probably are. 😬 The best thing you can do for your business right now (especially with all this inflation going on) is to make SURE your prices are helping you, not hurting you.

And if you are not sure how to do that, I highly recommend using The Pricing Calculator. It makes pricing easy.

It tells you exactly what you need to charge for all your goods and services.

No more uncertainty.
No more complicated math.
Just the right prices every single time.

And the best part is, you never have to worry about undercharging again.

Things change. So should your prices! You should be reevaluating your prices 1-2 times a year just to make sure you are still on the right track. And if you have not raised your prices in a while...it’s time.

🤷‍♀️ But how much should you raise them?

Here are some options:
1. Pick a random number and just got with it.
2. Do a tiny bump up and hope that inflation is not killing your business.
3. Use my Pricing Calculator - it will tell you exactly how much you should be charing for all your goods and services (while making sure you are still making money).

If the Pricing Calculator sounds like something that would be helpful for you and your business, join the waitlist in my bio.

That way I can notify you as soon as it is released next week (and you can get access to a sweet discount)!

I can’t wait for you guys to use this magic calculator!

Pie Season is here! If you are looking to upgrade your pie game, the crust is a great way to start! You can find the recipe in my blog here: sprinklesforbreakfast.com/decorative-pie-crust-tutorial

Also, these photos are from one of my earliest blog posts (before my mom lost her battle to cancer). The photos definitely could use an upgrade, as I was just learning how to take food photos. But my mom is the hand model - and I just can’t bring myself to redo them.

It’s so crazy how a photo of some fingers pinching a pie crust can make me so happy and ugly cry at the same time.

Grief is such a strange thing. It comes in so many different shapes and sizes and colors. It shows up for big life events, and it shows up on a random Tuesday when you are diving home from the market and you go to call them and realize they are not there.

Or when you are sitting on your couch posting about pie on Instagram...although that one feels pretty specific.

I know there is no right or wrong way to deal with grief. And everyone has to find their own way to heal.

But I just wanted to say this:

To anyone who has ever experienced loss in any way - I am so so sorry. And while I know words can’t fix it, I just wanted you to know you are not alone❤️
