Christmas Rice Krispie Treats

Christmas Rice Krispie Treats

I made these Christmas Rice Krispie Trees just like regular Rice Krispie treats.  I added the green food coloring to the marshmallow/butter mixture.  I put a cake pop stick in them, but you wouldn't have to do that.  The photos below tell the rest of the story.  For the cake pop stand, I used a box and cut little slits in the top for the cake pop sticks to go through.  Burlap was a great covering, since I could just wiggle the cake pop stick in the holes in the weave.

What kind of frosting did you use? I always have a hard time finding frosting that will "harden" a little and not just smear all over.

Just the regular kind that comes in the plastic tubs.  It does get a little soft, but if you chill slightly before using it you shouldn't have that problem.

Rice Krispie treats are one of M'ija's favorite sweets (and were Himself's favorite as well).

 

I've never done Xmas trees, but for Ostara, I rolled them into egg shapes instead of pressing them into a pan. Then I put a drop o food coloring on my palm and rolled eggs around in my hands to dye them.

 

I may just try the trees this year for her stocking.

You could using royal icing, like the kind you would do for cookies. It dries hard and has a gorgeous glossy look to it.

Thanks for posting.  Those are very cute, but won't take hours to prepare.

Christmas Rice Krispie Treats #2:  Ornaments

 

 

Christmas Rice Krispie Treats Holiday Ornaments

These Rice Krispie Ornaments are a cute treat to bring to neighbors and they look great as a holiday centerpiece.  

Christmas Rice Krispie Treats

1/4 C. butter + extra for your hands (you’ll need for shaping the Rice Krispie treats into a ball)
1 10-oz. package marshmallows 
6 C. Kellogg’s Rice Krispies
Holiday-colored sugar sprinkles or jimmies
Rolo candy
Toothpicks

  

Instructions:

Melt butter in a large saucepan.  Add marshmallows and stir constantly until well-combined. Add vanilla, and stir again.  Add the Rice Krispies cereal.  Mix until all of the cereal is coated with the marshmallow mixture.

Butter your hands well, then and shape the cereal into six balls.  Make sure they’re packed tightly.  Acting quickly, roll the balls in colored sugar or holiday-colored jimmies or sprinkles until coated.

For the top of the ornament, stick a toothpick into one end of a Rolo candy.  The other end of the toothpick long goes into the Rice Krispy ornament.
