Red Cross Crispies for St. George!

These great Red Cross Crispies, in honor of St. George whose feast day is celebrated on April 23rd, were submitted by Tiffany at Family at the Foot of the Cross. Thank you Tiffany!

"This was the easiest "unplanned" snack I've ever made. I happened to have Rice Krispies on hand so I made them while the kids were doing their dramatic arts lesson. I just cut them into triangles with a touch of red icing to be the shield of the Red Cross Knight. I think it took a whole 15 minutes...Yay for simple!"

Red Cross Crispies for St. George 


3 tablespoons butter or margarine
1-10 oz. package (about 40) regular -OR- 4 cups miniature Marshmallows
6 cups Rice Krispies®
Red Icing


1. In large saucepan melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat.

2. Add Rice Krispies cereal. Stir until well coated.

3. Using buttered spatula or wax paper evenly press mixture into 13 x 9 x 2-inch pan coated with cooking spray. Cool.

4. Cut into triangles.  Add red icing as pictured. Best if served the same day.

Don't forget to read Saint George and the Dragon by Margaret Hodges. Tiffany's children had a darling impromptu dress-up party and reenactment after reading this story. Be sure to click over to her blog to see the rest of her pictures!

Hope you all have a very Happy St. George's Day!
