  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 3 cups mini marshmallows
  • 1 tbsp red gel food coloring
  • 4 cups rice cereal
  • 4 oz yellow fondant
  • Cornstarch, for rolling
  • Black buttercream, for decoration


  1. Prepare the Pan:
    • Line an 8×8 inch square pan with wax paper for easy removal of the treats once set.
  2. Make the Rice Krispies Mixture:
    • In a medium-sized pot, melt the butter over medium heat.
    • Add the mini marshmallows and stir continuously until completely melted and smooth.
    • Mix in the red gel food coloring until the color is evenly distributed.
    • Gently fold in the rice cereal, ensuring each piece is well-coated with the marshmallow mixture.
  3. Shape and Set:
    • Evenly press the mixture into the prepared pan. Use a spatula or the back of a spoon to press down firmly, creating a flat and even layer.
    • Allow the mixture to set in the pan at room temperature, ensuring it firms up properly.
  4. Create Fondant Decorations:
    • Lightly dust a clean surface with cornstarch to prevent sticking, and roll out the yellow fondant to about 1/4 inch thickness.
    • Cut out rectangles approximately an inch long and 1/3 inch wide, angling one end of each rectangle to create a dynamic shape.
    • Use the smaller end of a frosting tip or a small cutter to punch out mini circles from the remaining fondant.
  5. Decorate the Treats:
    • Once the Rice Krispies mixture has set, remove it from the pan and cut into rectangles.
    • Pipe a small circle of black buttercream onto each rectangle, placing it at a slight angle to add visual interest.
    • Carefully place a fondant rectangle and a circle on each treat to mimic the look of a superhero logo.
