DIY Rice Krispies Treat Paint Brushes

For Izzy’s birthday this year we themed it around what she loves. It was between Mickey and Minnie Mouse,  a dance party and an art party. We went with the art party and I’m so glad because it turned out beautiful! You can see the whole party here.

I’m sharing a fun and easy DIY Rice Krispies treat recipe with you all!

I seriously never made Rice Krispies treats before this and they turned out adorable and delicious.

DIY Rice Krispie Treat Paint Brushes


  • 3 tablespoons Butter
  • 6 cups Rice Krispies Cereal
  • 4 cups of mini marshmallows or 1 10oz package marshmallows
  • Melting chocolates (white or colored)
  • Optional: Food coloring (if you can't find colored chocolates)
  • Large Wooden Popsicle Sticks


  1. In a large saucepan melt the butter on low heat. Add the marshmallows and keep stirring as it melts.
  2. Once completely melted remove from heat.
  3. Add Kellogg's Rice Krispies cereal and stir until evenly coated.
  4. Press the mixture into a 13 X 9 pan. (Make sure to coat the pan with cooking spray first.)
  5. Once it has cooled a bit, cut into rectangles.
  6. Place each one onto wax paper.
  7. Melt one color at a time of the colored dipping chocolates (or add dye to the while ones).
  8. Dip each wooden stick into the melted chocolate and then stick it into the rectangular treat. (This will be the brush handle)
  9. Let sit for a minute to harden.
  10. Dip the top of the treat (the other end). Take a spoon and drizzle some on to allow for the dripping paint look. Lay flat on wax paper to dry.
  11. Store in large zip lock bags with wax paper until serving.
