We have a serious Curious George fan on our hands – so for his 3rd birthday we decided to tweak our Rudolph the Red Nosed Rice Krispies Treat design and make George in Rice Krispies form.
Cut slits vertically into both sides of the Rice Krispies treat just big enough to insert the Nilla Wafers. Dip approximately 1/3 of each Nilla Wafer in melted chocolate and insert the “ears” into the slits. The chocolate will act as the glue to keep the cookie attached to the Rice Krispies treat. Press the sides of the slits onto the cookie to help hold it in place. Spread melted chocolate onto the back of another Nilla Wafer and place it on the front of the Rice Krispies treat to create the monkey’s muzzle. Using more of the melted chocolate attach the candied eyes and “draw” a mouth and nostrils. Insert a mini wooden stick to use as a handle. Allow the chocolate “glue” to harden before standing George upright.
There you have it – more monkeys than the Man with the Yellow Hat can handle!
