Supplies needed:
Printed bag toppers from our Printable Mustache Valentine’s Day Collection
Clear cellophane bags
Rice Crispy cereal
1 bag of large marshmallows
Butter
Melting chocolate
Mustache cookie cutters (I bought mine here)

———————————————————-

Directions:
1. I used the official Rice Crispy recipe found here.  (However, I only added 5 cups of cereal instead of 6)
2. Once you have mixed up the melted marshmallows and cereal, transfer mixture to a sheet of wax paper.
3. While mixture is still warm, take a second piece of wax paper and lay on top of mixture and press flat. (You are trying to smash it a little flatter, so a cookie cutter can cut through).  I also used a rolling pin, and rolled on top of the wax paper to flatten it – I made my rice crispies about 1/2″-3/4″ thick.
4. Let the mixture cool a little, but still moldable.
5. Using cookie cutter, cut out mustaches.

7. Cut out all of your mustaches and finish letting them cool.
8. Next get the melting chocolates ready (follow bag instructions).
9. Dip each mustache rice crispy treat into chocolate.  *Note, rice crispies are a bumpy surface so you will want to smooth out chocolate once it is dipped.  (Use a knife or clean finger to do so)
