Minecraft Rice Crispy Bars

My kids play Minecraft. They love it.  I have no understanding of the game.  I'm not a fan of zombies so I wasn't impressed with them playing it at first but then I found out that it is more creative than just dealing with zombies. I've seem them create the most awesome things and they have a blast doing it.  

Once a week, they have a friend come over and they all play Minecraft together.  They each have an account and we have multiple computers so the three of them battle it out and it gets really loud in here. 

They start listening to their Minecraft parodys on YouTube.  There are a lot of them.  Pick a top hits song and someone has undoubtedly made a Minecraft parody of it.  

I actually saw this first on a YouTube video.  Rosanna Pansino makes Nerdy Nummies and she is just adorable. 

The kids loved these!  They really weren't hard to make and it was kinda fun.  The  most time consuming part was making the creeper faces.  Rosanna made chocolate squares but that didn't work for me. I used a icing tube with a really thin top and just made them by hand.  They did take awhile but it was worth it to see the kids' faces!

Creeper Krispy Bars Recipe

3 tbsp. butter
1 package (10 oz) marshmallows or 4 cups mini marshmallow
6 cups Rice Krispys
Green food coloring
Black decorating icing

Minecraft Grass Blocks

3 tbsp. butter
1 package (10 oz) marshmallows or 4 cups mini marshmallow
1/2 cup chocolate peanut butter (or more for color)
6 cups Rice Krispies
Green icing

Melt butter on low temperature in a pan. Add marshmallows and melt slowly stirring often.  Add peanut butter (for the brown blocks) or green food coloring (for the creepers), then add the Rice Krispies and stir until coated.  Pour into a 9 x 13 in. pan coated with cooking spray.  Take some parchment paper and press down on bars until it fills the pan and is flat.  Cool.  

Remove bars from pan and cut into squares. 

For Creeper Krispys, use the black icing with a thin tip to make a creeper face. You might want to practice on some paper first to get the hang of it. 

For Grass Blocks - Stack 2 squares on top of each other and press together.  Use a flowered tip to make "grass" with green icing.  You might want to practice on paper first.
