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!

How to Make Ladybug Party Snacks

Ladybug Krispies Snack

Ladybug Themed Snacks -

This ladybug themed snack features crispy rice cereal, marshmallows, and cookies to make it perfect for a ladybug party!


  • 6 c crispy rice cereal
  • 10 oz. mini-marhsmallows
  • 3 T butter
  • White nonpareil sprinkles
  • Red decorating icing
  • Black decorating icing
  • Fudge covered Oreos
  • 4 chocolate morsels per ladybug


1. Prepare a 13 x 9 baking sheet with wax paper and spray with non-stick cooking spray.

2. Melt butter in a large saucepan over low heat. When the butter is melted, add the marshmallows and melt, stirring constantly. Remove the saucepan from heat.

3. Fold in the cereal. Stir until the cereal is coated in the marshmallow.

4. Using a buttered spatula or greased wax paper evenly press mixture into baking sheet. Cool completely.

5. Use heart cookie cutter to cut treats. If the treats are loose, press additional krispy mixture into the cookie cutter before releasing the shape onto waxed paper. Reshape the remaining cereal in your baking pan until all is used.

6. Press white nonpareils into fudge-dipped Oreo to create eyes. If they're having trouble sticking, use some of the black decorating icing or melted white chocolate to help them stick.

7. Using the round tip on the black icing, outline the ladybug and create a line up the center. Fill the remaining space with red icing. You can use a toothpick to smooth and spread the icing.

8. Immediately add the Oreo head and milk chocolate morsels (as spots). Allow to dry before serving.
