We have been invited to a second community Eid party and decided to try our hands at rice krispie treats in the shape of moon and stars to take with us.
Eid Al Fitr is the holiday celebrated at the end of Ramadan. We used moon and star cookie cutters since they are cultural symbols of Islam seen on many domes of mosques. They can also be found on the covers of the Quran and on many country flags.
Once we cut out the moon and star shapes, we covered them in chocolate and sprinkles, follow along in case you want to try some out.
- 1/2 teaspoon cooking vanilla
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1 bag marshmallows
- 1 box crisp rice cereal
- Red candy melts
- Silver and gold sprinkles
- Baking pan and cooking spray
- Cookie sheet and parchment paper
- Moon and star cookie cutters
- Bamboo skewers (optional)
Melt the butter and stir in the marshmallows until combined with butter.
Take the pot off the stove and stir in the cereal and cooking vanilla
Place everything into a pan that has been sprayed with cooking spray, trying to get the mixture to be as flat and even as possible.
Wait for about 15-30 minutes for it to cool, then use the cookie cutters to cut out the treats.
Once you have the amount you need, lay out an assembly line of the treats, the melted chocolate, and sprinkles.
Dip the treats into the melted chocolate, then lay then down on the parchment sheet. The last step is to add sprinkles. Do this right away so the sprinkles can sink into the chocolate and set.
We set them on the counter for the chocolate to fully set. For an extra bit of fun, we added a few bamboo sticks so the treats could be placed into a vase.
