DIRECTIONS

  • To begin, melt butter over medium heat. Once melted, fold in marshmallows and stir until completely melted down. Remove from heat. Mix in rice krispies cereal. Allow a few minutes to cool to room temperature. Coat clean hands and working surface with additional butter and form your basic Mr. Whiskers shapes.
  • In a mixing bowl, whisk egg whites until frothy. Stir in confectioners sugar one cup at a time, mixing briefly in between each addition. When desired consistency is reached, separate half into a piping bag and refrigerate until ready to use. Add 3 tablespoons room temp water into remaining frosting and mix until a thinner, more liquid texture is reached.
  • Place rice krispie molds on a wire rack with a foil-lined baking tray underneath to catch run-off and coconut. Brush or pour half of thin royal frosting over your treats and allow 1- 1/2 hours to set. After time has elapsed, coat again with remaining frosting and immediately flock with shredded coconut.
  • Cut edible rice paper into varying lengths of cat hair and adhere candy melt eyes and fur using the royal icing in your piping bag as glue.
  • Mix food coloring and vodka and using a fine brush, paint on pupil and desired shadows. The vodka will evaporate quickly and will allow the color to set without leaving a sticky residue.
