Football helmet rice krispie treats

I made these for my husband and our friend's birthday.  My hubby's a Cowboys fan and our friend's a Colts fan.  I just threw them together quickly, not even planning ahead on making these.  I think if I would have planned them out more, and had more time to work on molding them and decorating (I didn't even have appropriate icing) that they would have been much better.  Anyway, they were fun so I'm just posting to give ideas to those that are more creative.  ;o)

Those are cool!!

I tried to make hands and legs for an M & M man cake that I made and couldn't get the krispies to work with me!!  I gave up and he was just a body!!

any tips you can give for making the krispies easy to work with and mold?????  That would be super!!!

Those are super cute!

I use the treats that come in sheets.  Homemade just doesn't work for me.   I find that if I cover them with plastic wrap and pound them as flat as I can, they make for a better base for fondant covering.  The squashing helps to fill in all the nooks and crannies so the surface/fondant will be nice and smooth.  I use buttercream in between the treats and fondant.

I used homemade and just added a little more marshmallow so the cereal stuck together better and it was easier to mold.  I also let them sit in the fridge to harden up a bit...
