Rice Krispie Paint Brush

While I was gathering ideas for my daughter’s art birthday party, I came across several parties that had used Rice Krispie Treats dipped in melted chocolate to look like paint brushes.

I thought the paint brushes were a cute art birthday party idea and decided to make some “gourmet” Rice Krispie Treat paint brushes for party favors at the family birthday party.

Rice Krispie Paint Brush Party Favors

I started by making a double batch of traditional Rice Krispie Treats and spread it on on a cookie sheet.  Once the treats were cool, I cut the treats into two sizes – 2″ x 3″ rectangles and 3″ x 4″ rectangles.

I melted some milk chocolate, white chocolate, and caramel to use as the paint on the Rice Krispie Treats.  I also used sprinkles to decorate some of the paint brushes.

After the Rice Krispie Treats were cut into rectangles, I added a colored craft stick that had been cut in half into one side of the treat then dipped the other side in white chocolate.

I placed the dipped Rice Krispie Treat on wax or parchment paper to allow the chocolate to setup.

Before the chocolate was setup, I added sprinkles and drizzled chocolate and caramel on top of the white chocolate.

I created several different Rice Krispie Treat paint brush masterpieces. :)

My kids love these treats.  I had to guard them so the family didn’t eat them before the party.  I packaged the paint brushes in some clear treat bags and put all the treats in some large clear paint buckets.
