"Chicken Leg" Shaped Crispy Treats

Vote for this contest contender!

July 6th is National Fried Chicken Day. I have a group of friends who are fried chicken lovers that like to make chicken on this day. I thought it would be fun to make a sweet treat version that looked like fried chicken. This is a fun and simple recipe for all ages. No baking necessary!

I used pink mini marshmallows because I had them on hand. You can use any colour as they get covered up anyway. :)

Total Time: 1 hour

Yield: 8 drumstick treats

Ingredients:

Steps:

  1. Melt the candy melts according to the directions on the bag.
  2. Break the pretzel rods in half and lay them on a piece of parchment paper on a tray.
  3. Dip one end of each pretzel into the melted candy.
  4. Press on two mini marshmallow at the end of each rod.
  5. Add a small blob of candy melt on top of the marshmallows, going up the pretzel rod, then allow to harden. This will give them a stronger bond.
  6. Now dip the pretzels back into the candy melt mixture, 3/4 of the way up.
  7. Lay them on the parchment paper and place in the fridge for about 5 minutes to harden up.
  8. Add butter to the remaining marshmallows in a large microwaveable bowl and melt in the microwave on high for a minute. Stir until smooth.
  9. Stir in the crisped rice cereal.
  10. Take a ball of the crispy rice mix and attach it to the end of the pretzel rod, cupping it with both hands tightly to create a chicken leg shape.
  11. Coat the rice with a thin layer of peanut butter.
  12. Press on the bran flakes. Serve it up!
