LAWN MOWER RICE KRISPIE TREATS for Dad Directions:
Cut the flexible straws in half. Discard the bottom half and keep the end with the flexible part.
Take 2 of the straws and fold the flex part and attach these together by pushing one inside the other. It will look like a “U” shape.
Spread a layer of red frosting on top of each Rice Krispie treat, then place a a Rolo candy piece in the center of each.
Take one straw “U” (these are your lawn mower handles) and push the ends into a Rice Krispie treat, on one side. Repeat with each Rice Krispie treat until all have attached “handles.”
Take apart 12 of the mini Oreo cookies and scrape out the filling. Use white frosting to attach 4 of the cookies to the sides of each Rice Krispie treat to look like wheels.
Scoop the remaining white frosting into a small mixing bowl and add a few drops of green food coloring gel. Stir until well mixed; add more coloring drop-by-drop until you reach your desired shade of green.
Spread the green frosting on 6 graham crackers to resemble grass. Gently place a lawnmower Rice Krispie treat on top each graham cracker, pressing slightly so that the “lawn mowers” will attach to the “grass.”
Allow to set and enjoy!
