Ladybug Themed Snacks
When it comes to ladybugs, we’re big fans. Not only are these adorable insects bringers of good luck, but they’re also plentiful in our garden.
After reading Ladybug Girl we decided that a ladybug party should definitely be in order. What better to have at said party than ladybug snacks of course!
These ladybug Krispie treats are made from our favorite cereal and delicious cookies. Win-win, right?!
If you’re having a ladybug themed party, these are a definite must-have!
Ladybug Krispie Treats
When you make the ladybug snacks it’s really important to remember to use the non-cooking spray because they’ll definitely stick if you don’t.
After making the crispy treats, use a cookie cutter to cut them into heart shapes when they’re totally cooled off. We’ve made the mistake before of trying to cut them when the cereal and marshmallow mixture is still slightly warm and it doesn’t go well – at all. So, let them cool completely before breaking out the heart cookie cutter.
From there you’ll be sticking the nonpareil sprinkles onto the fudge-covered cookies to make the face. If you can’t get them to stick on their own, use a bit of the icing to help them adhere.
Outline with the black icing and then stick the head onto the heart crispy rice treat to make the most adorable ladybug themed snack you ever saw.
While you can definitely have kids help you make them, tweens and teens will probably master the detail work best.
Serve the ladybug snacks at your next ladybug themed party or when you’re reading your favorite ladybug book!
