1. Krispie Treat: In a large stockpot, melt the butter over low heat until it’s 80 percent melted. Add the mini marshmallows and stir gently, coating them with melted butter. When the marshmallows are about 80 percent melted, stir for another 15 seconds and then turn off the heat. Continue to stir gently until the marshmallows are still only about 80 percent melted, about 35 seconds. Note: If the marshmallows melt too much, the mixture will be too hot to handle—wait 1–2 minutes and then mold quickly! Add the cereal and mix well, until the marshmallows and cereal are fully combined, about 40 seconds. Do not overmix!
2. Pizza (makes 1 slice, 14″ long) : Once the mixture is combined, coat the palms of your hands with cooking spray before handling it. Pour the mixture onto the parchment-covered template on the work surface. Use both hands to mold the mixture over the template, smoothing the edges until the mixture begins to firm up. Mold a slightly raised section along the curved edge for the pizza crust. In a small bowl, add 2 drops of yellow food coloring to the shredded coconut. Mix the coconut lightly (do not cover all the coconut in yellow) for multicolored shredded cheese. Using red icing with a round tip, outline and begin to fill in the slice below the crust. Use the spatula to smooth and spread the icing evenly. Sprinkle the coconut on top of the red icing. Place the licorice wheels on top of the coconut for pepperoni. You can experiment with different toppings: Beyond the licorice swirls making the perfect “pepperoni,” black M&M’s are delicious as “olives” and sliced-up green Sour Punch Straws pass for “peppers.”
