Countdown to Christmas Day 6: Rice Krispie Trees
Happy Dec 6th! Today's holiday sweet is an oldie but a goodie....Rice Krispie Treats cut out like Christmas trees! What kid doesn't like these ooeey gooey marshmallowy rice cereal treat? With only 3 ingrdients (butter, marshmallow and Rice Krispies) you can have a no fuss festive treat in no time.
You can find the recipe on the box of Rice Krispies cereal or on their website here. Melt the butter and marshmallows in a saucepan on the stove.
Add in the Rice Krispies and stir until combined with the marshmallow and spread in greased 9 x 13 pan to let set up.
Once the treats have set, grab your favorite cookie cutter and cut out some fun holiday shapes.
After I cut out all my Christmas trees I added and outline of green icing around the edge and garnished with some green crystal sprinkles for a glittery look.
Place the trees in a sandwich baggie and tie with a bow. These make great treats for your kids to pass out to their classmates as a holiday snack!
