Rice Krispy Treat Mustaches On A Stick

With the International Fake Mustache Day Blog Hop coming up, I was kind of at a loss of what to do. I mean, yeah, make stuff with mustaches, but what? and how? And I don't have a mustache cutter! Shoulda bought that set I saw at Target over the holidays but I didn't really need glasses nor a tie cutter. That would have taken up too much valuable space.

I had a couple birthdays coming up that I needed to make some treats for and got Rice Krispy Treats on the brain. Then it came to me in a flash - Rice Krispy Treat Mustaches on a stick! YEAH! But I didn't have any mustache cookie cutters...doh! I can be creative... see?

And no need to reinvent the wheel. Here's the link for the Original Rice Krispy Treats Recipe and here's how I made these babies. And be sure to use this tip when squishing them into a pan: Cooking Tip #1: Smushing sticky stuff like cookie dough into a pan. :)

The fun part was giving them to my girls.

Perfect! I love that you were able to use the heart cutter instead of a custom mustache cutter. The pictures of your girls are darling!

OMG the doll mustaches are a hoot! I have to do this for my daughter's dolls when she's at school. She will crack up! Love it!!
