Pokemon Go Pokeball Rice Cereal Treats Recipe

pokemon-go-pokeball-cereal-treat

We have a special treat for all you Pokemon Go fans out there! A Pokeball rice cereal treat, that is! I’m on the hunt day and night because I want to be “the very best.” A Pokemon trainer can never attain “master level” by leaving home Pokeball-free.

I remember growing up and collecting Pokemon cards, catching episodes every day after school, and drawing them during my free classes (I could never master the art of sketching Charmander, though). It was such a hit back then and I can’t believe how big of a hit it is today. An entirely new generation is enjoying a show that I was once addicted to.  I love seeing kids like my nieces be in complete awe when they see Eevee evolve for the first time.

I decided to make these Pokeball Cereal Treats because they are so fitting with the Pokemon Go trend. I figured that cereal treats would be the easiest to form into spheres but I didn’t realize how sticky they could get! A helpful hint: keep a bowl of water next to you while you’re forming them. By keeping your hands moist, you avoid any cereal mess and can actually shape your treats accordingly.

While it took some trial and error (ex.: I thought my licorice sticks would wrap all the way around – they don’t), I absolutely love how these turned out. I may not be ten years old anymore, but I totally feel like I’m channeling my inner Pokemon Master with this fun dessert!

Ingredients

  • 3 cups rice cereal
  • 2 cups mini marshmallows+ extra for decorating
  • 2 tbps butter
  • Vanilla buttercream frosting
  • Red gel food coloring
  • Black licorice

Yields: 8 to 10 Pokeball Cereal Treats

Directions 
1. Start by preparing your cereal treats: in a medium-sized pot, add 2 cups of marshmallows and butter. Let met over medium heat on the stovetop.

2. Once marshmallow mixture is melted, mix into a large bowl with your cereal treats. Mix well.

3. With the help of an ice cream scoop, shape your cereal treats into 2-inch spheres (hint: if you keep your hands wet with water, this process will be cleaner and a lot less sticky!). Chill the spheres for about an hour

4. In the meantime, cut your black licorice in small pieces, about 1/3 of an inch long. Cut your remaining mini marshmallows in half, width wise, so they become little discs. They will act as the center button that opens up your Pokeball. In two bowls, separate your buttercream icing and color one serving red. We prefer using gel food coloring because of its more saturated color.

5. Once the treats are chilled, coat half of the sphere with white icing. Place the licorice and the marshmallows discs in the center. Chill for 20 minutes.

6. Once chilled, ice the bottom half of the Pokeballs with your red icing. Let chill for another 20 minutes and serve/catch ’em all!
