Chocolate Moon and Star Krispie Treats {Recipe}

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.

Supplies

  • 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.

Recycled Oui Tea Lights {Tutorial}

My daughter and I recycled our Oui yogurt glass pots into tea lights for our Ramadan craft today. We plan on putting them in the back yard this summer for outdoor parties.

If you decide to make this, post it using the tag #CraftyRamadan and #PlaidRamadan to be entered into our $50 giveaway!

Supplies

  • Frosted glass paint
  • Paintbrush
  • Blue tape
  • Oui yogurt glass pot
  • Scissors

Start by cutting the blue tape into small squares.

Place the square on the glass pot, then add another but offset it to make a star. This eight points star is called a khatam in Arabic.

Continue to add more khatams all the way around the glass pot.

Add a thin line of blue tape to the top and paint the entire glass pot.

We placed our pot in the sun for a few hours and once it was dry, we used the tip of the scissors to peel off the blue tape.

Now all we need is a LED light inside for our khatam star design to shine through. Never leave a light unattended and be careful with small children and pets when you have a light on.

Make a few more and play around with the khatam shapes this time.

Eid Gallery Glass Cheese Tray {Tutorial}

To display our stuffed dates from yesterday, we dressed up our cheese glass tray, with Plaid Crafts Gallery Glass, to put them on for the Eid party next week.

Eid Al Fitr is the celebration that occurs at the end of the fasting month of Ramadan.

We are very lucky to own a cheese platter that is made from glass because we were able to use the left over gallery glass from our Allah suncatcher. Be sure to go to the bottom of the post to see the extra crafting surprise!

If you decide to make this, post it using the tag #CraftyRamadan and #PlaidRamadan to be entered into our $50 giveaway!

Supplies

  • Glass cheese platter
  • Eid and lantern template
  • Gallery Glass – blue, green and yellow
  • Liquid Lead
  • Blue painters tape

The first step is to tape the word Eid and lanterns to the top side of the cheese tray.

The next step is flip the tray over, outline the word Eid and lanterns with the liquid lead, wait overnight for it to harden, then fill in with color.

That is all there is to it. To make the colors blur into each other like in the letter I, just use a toothpick after filling in both colors to blend them together.

We hope to cover the tray with our stuffed dates, then as everyone eats them the letters and lanterns will be revealed.

For an extra crafting surprise, we discovered that we could take the letters and lanterns from the tray and put them on our window until the party!
