Minecraft is pretty much all over everything my 9 and 12-year-olds do. They love to play the game and create new worlds. I am over here just pretending to know what the heck a dirt block is. My son had a Minecraft Birthday not that long ago, and these Minecraft Crispy Treats were a HUGE hit!
You know I am all about shortcuts, so these were insanely easy to make too! I made a batch of crispy treats using cocoa pebbles cereal for the “dirt.” The grass on top is just my favorite buttercream frosting with some green food coloring. I bought this fancy grass icing tip from Amazon. It is perfect for making grass, monster hair, and all kinds of other fun things with frosting. Just use the tip attached to a piping bag to squeeze the green grass right on top of my dirt blocks.
I can’t even begin to tell you how excited the kids were when they saw the finished product! I was excited too because these were super easy to make. The bonus to everything in Minecraft being shaped like a square is that it is pretty easy to recreate for parties! Between these and the bottles of Minecraft Healing Potion, it was the best party ever!
Don’t think that these Minecraft Crispy Treats are only for Minecraft fans! You can make them Spring Crispy Treats and add some cute flower sprinkles to the top of the grass OR a gummy worm. Oh my goodness, how cute would that be?! The possibilities are endless. Just get creative with the kids and have fun!
