Instructions
  1. In a large pot on the stove, melt the butter over low heat. Next, add the package of marshmallows. Stir them until they are melted and fully combined with the butter. Add in the Rice Krispies®. Stir, stir, stir coating the cereal well. Remove from heat and let it cool a bit. Use a double boiler to melt the white chocolate wafers over low-medium heat.Or, you can melt the chocolate in the microwave, but be careful. If you melt it at a heat that is too high or too fast, it will harden.Once the chocolates are melted, set them aside and let it cool a bit. Pour the coconut flakes into a ziplock bag. Add 5-7 squirts of food coloring to the bag. I did yellow so we could have yellow chicks. Seal the bag and shake it around until the coconut is colored thoroughly.Add the icing to the piping bag. I did three bright colors. You can add all three colors to the bag and they will make rainbow grass.Once the Rice Krispies cool a bit, start to form small balls by rolling small handfuls of the mixture in your hands.lace them on a cookie sheet that is covered in parchment paper.Thoroughly dip each ball in the white chocolate. Place the ball back on the parchment paper cookie sheet spaced an inch or two a part.Sprinkle them thoroughly with the colored coconut.While the chocolate is still melted, choose two bright color confetti circle sprinkles to add as eyes. I used the blue ones. Use a toothpick to adjust them and ensure they are securely added.Break off a small piece of yellow Starburst candy. Using your fingers and thumbs to press it into a shape that resembles a beak.Next take two orange wildflower confetti shapes and place them as feet.Let them cool 100%.Ice cupcakes and place chick on top.
