Mermaid Rice Krispies Treats
We are a house in love with magical creatures. Mermaids, unicorns, all of it! 🦄🧜🏼♀️We’ve made Unicorn Rice Krispies Treats before, why not Mermaid Rice Krispies Treats now! In fact, my daughters are so obsessed with this new mermaid magical trend, they got mermaid blankets for Christmas! (You know, the kind that slip on your legs and make it look like you have a long mermaid fin, but in blanket form? Check it out!) They also are OBSESSED with reversible sequined mermaid stuff, like these mermaid reversible pillows! We want this material on EVERYTHING!

To go along with our magical being obsession, we love watching movies and shows revolving around it. Who is the most famous mermaid of all? Well, of COURSE it’s Ariel! It’s been almost seven years since we purchased the “Diamond Edition” DVD/BluRay/Digital Copy of The Little Mermaid. We are ridiculously excited for it’s rerelease with their new Anniversary Edition! Our family can’t wait to get our hands on it! (Especially since our other copy has seen better days, lol).

Baby V thought it was “magic” how we transformed simple Rice Krispies Treats into Mermaid Rice Krispies Treats like this! She couldn’t be more excited for her birthday now!

With this Mermaid Rice Krispies Treats recipe, you can opt to make the Rice Krispies Treats from scratch, or purchase the pre-made individually wrapped ones from the store, cut those (if they’re big), and decorate them. Easy-peasy! Whatever you want to do! We also make it even easier on ourselves using ready-made fondant, too. This cuts down on the prep time and ready-made is always perfect, particularly for tiny helpers in the kitchen wanting to bake too!

How to Make Mermaid Rice Krispies Treats
To make these gorgeous Mermaid Rice Krispies Treats, you will need the following ingredients:
- Rice Krispies Treats, cut into rectangles (or you can make them from scratch)
- Purple fondant
- White fondant
- Edible silver food glitter
- Blue candy melts
- Coconut oil
- Brown sugar
You will also need the following tools to make this recipe a success:
- Shell fondant mold
- Bowl of water with a food safe paint brush
- Baking sheet
- Wax paper
- Paring knife
Line a baking sheet with wax paper for decorating and set aside.
If you decided to make your own Rice Krispies Treats, please make sure your treats are cooled fully before decorating. Have them sliced into rectangles and ready to go.
Use your sea shell fondant mold to create twelve purple fondant sea shells. To use the mold, press a small amount of the purple fondant down into the desired shape. (With these molds, you have plenty of shapes to choose from!)
Press hard, smooshing down the fondant into the shape, then remove it from the mold carefully peeling it back.
Depending on how much fondant you used, the shape might need to be trimmed using a good quality sharpened paring knife.
Roll your white fondant into twelve small spheres, about ¼ of an inch in size.
Pour some edible silver glitter onto your wax paper and dip your paint brush into the bowl of water.
Dip your paint brush into your glitter and paint each of your white fondant spheres.
Microwave your blue candy melts and coconut oil in thirty second intervals until completely melted.
Dip the bottom of each Rice Krispies Treat into your bowl of melted candy.
You’ll want about a third to a half of the rice cereal treat to be coated.
Place a fondant sea shell and a fondant pearl on each Rice Krispies Treat on top of the melted candy while it’s still wet.
Sprinkle brown sugar at the bottom of each Rice Krispies Treat to represent the “sand.”
Allow the treats to set fully before serving.
Aren’t they just perfect?
