Picture of Minecraft Crispie Treats
We were hosting a Minecraft LAN party for my pre-teen son and his friends, and we needed some refreshments to force them all to tear themselves out of their seats for a few minutes in the middle.  We came up with this Minecraft-themed snack, based on cubes of rice crispy treats and jell-o.  You can actually mine the cubes with a spoon, and then eat 'em!

It was a big hit at the party.  Some kids liked the "dirt" (especially with grass on top), some preferred the sand, and one chowed down on the "water."  But they all thought it was super cool.

This is my very first Instructable, so please bear with me...

Step 1: Materials

You will need:

• 18 cups of Rice Krispies cereal (or generic equivalent)
• 3 10-oz bags of mini marshmallows
• 1 package mini chocolate chips (we used semisweet)
• 1 cup Ovaltine or other chocolate powder
• 3 boxes blue jell-o
• 1 can white frosting
• green food coloring
• 1 9x13" pan
• 1 8x8" pan
• standard cookware

Step 2: Make plain rice crispy treats

The first step's an easy one — just prepare a standard batch of rice crispy treats, according to the recipe you'll probably find inside the box.  This should use 6 cups of cereal, 1 package of marshmallows, and half a stick of butter.

The only tricky part here is that, to get the size right, you need to smoosh it into half a 9x13" pan.  We're going to be making 1.5-inch cubes, so you want this to be flat and 1.5 inches thick.  I actually measured it with a ruler, but found that using half the pan came out about right.  Just butter a big metal spatula, and smash the mix into shape.  Be sure to press pretty hard — you want firm squares to work with, not the loose chewy kind.

Cover and place into the fridge for a few hours to harden.
That looks so awesome!!! It looks so much like what you would see in minecraft itself!

It was time consuming, but I think it came out great!


Would cocoa work in place of Ovaltine?

I hope I will get to make this.
I love minecraft and treats, you sir, deserve 5 start ;)
Oooh, so many good snacks all in one place! Awesome!
This is great! I am going to surprise my brother with this for his 13th birthday next month.
