Rice Crisp Cheeseburger

This Rice Crisp Cheeseburger is a creative way to use Rice Crisps.Just mix, shape, decorate and done! What are you waiting for? Let's get stated.

I’ve always loved doodling, painting, and sculpting (and eating) cheeseburgers. I covered sales reports with tiny ones rendered in blue ink at work, painted them in oils in a college painting course, and made a teeny-tiny Play-Doh version that I photographed on top of a credit card to demonstrate scale. Once, I even sculpted a mini burger out of coloured Tootsie Rolls. I’m not sure why cheeseburgers have always been my muse, but they’re colourful, delicious, and, when made of anything besides bread, cheese, and meat, they’re pretty silly. It’s no surprise that a cheeseburger was my first-ever creative crispy treat, and it’s remained a fan favourite. Plus, it doesn’t require any icing, so it’s supremely easy to make and sure to impress. Pro tip: Substitute chocolate crispy rice cereal in the patty (E batch) for some flavour variety.
