Turn a batch of RICE KRISPY TREATS into PENNANTS, FOOTBALLS , and POMPONS for your next PLAYOFF PARTY!
Mix up a batch of MARSHMALLOW RICE KRISY TREAT and then shape the mixture into pennants, footballs, and balls for pompons. (You can use a serving spoon to help shape the curved sides of the footballs and a ruler to keep the side of the pennants straight. For the pompon rounds simply roll the treat between your palms.) Push the tines of a plastic fork about 1/2 inch into each shape, taking care not to split the shape apart and pressing as needed to secure the treat mixture to the tines.
For the pennants, hold the fork by the handle and dip the pennant shaped treat into MELTING WAFERS in a color to match your favorite team. (Dip up to and slightly onto the tines so the melted candy secures the shape to the fork.) Let the candy harden. Once the candy is firm, add details to the pennants using a ziplock bag filled with FROSTING (snip a very small corner to turn it into a piping bag). Or use a tube of GEL FROSTING from the grocers to outline and write your cheers on the pennants.
For the footballs, using the the football shaped treats, dip as described above into CHOCOLATE MELTING WAFERS, let the candy harden, and add laces using VANILLA FROSTING.
For the pompons, tint SHREDDED COCONUT two colors to match your favorite team (keeping half of the coconut untinted). Spread the two colors of tinted coconut on separate sheets of waxed paper and allow to dry completely. Once the coconut is completely dry, using the round shaped treats, dip the treat as described above in WHITE MELTING WAFERS and sprinkle the wet candy with alternating shreds of one color of tinted coconut and untinted coconut to make a two-tone pom-pon. Make a second pompon using the second color of tinted coconut mixed again with untinted coconut.
Arrange on a serving plate or you can arrange the handles in a glass to make them stand upright. These TREATS are so easy and so much fun, we think your TEAM will be cheering for more!!
We hope your team wins! Happy decorating!
