The holidays are the perfect time to get crafty in the kitchen! Here are some creative Christmas rice krispie treats that you and your kids can make for a party! I think my favorite is the wreath one...I just love licorice! I followed a basic rice krispie recipe and dyed the marshmallows before adding the rice krispies. After that you have to let them cool in a pan before shaping them.
Rice Krispie Ornament Treats
For the top of the ornament I used pull apart twizzlers that I attached with white chocolate to the mini marshmallows. I also attached the marshmallow with white chocolate to the top of the ornaments. Stick them on a plate or in tiny cupcake liners for a holiday touch!
Rice Krispie Wreath
For the wreath I shaped it with my hand, used the pull apart twizzler as both garland and a bow and cut small pieces off to make the berry look. This is an adorable dessert and way better than using those red cinnamon candies (in my opinion!)
Rice Krispie Christmas Trees
I shaped the Christmas trees by hand then I melted white chocolate to make the garland and attach the assorted sprinkles. To make the garland you just put the melted chocolate in a zip lock baggie and cut a very small piece off of the corner. To make the Christmas tree bottoms, use a peanut butter cup or hershey's kiss with a glob of frosting.
Rice Krispie Gingerbread Man
For the gingerbread man, I cut out a rectangle, dipped the front in chocolate that I mixed with a tsp or so of coconut oil, then I decorated them with m&m's for the buttons and cheeks. I used chocolate chips for the eyes, used a dot of white chocolate in the center and the smile was the pull apart twizzler. I put a little white chocolate in a zip lock baggie and cut off a very small piece out of the corner and used that to decorate the bottom.
Rice Krispie Rudolph the Reindeer
For the reindeer (my favorite) I cut out a rectangle and used melted chocolate (also in the baggie) to draw on the antlers and eyes, then attached a red m&m with the chocolate. Stick a lollipop stick in the bottom and kids will love them!
