How are things coming together with your Christmas plans? Have you done any holiday baking? A super easy way to add some unique Christmas treats to you holiday table is with this easy to make Rice Krispie Christmas Wreaths.
The GGG boys and I headed into the kitchen over the weekend to make some homemade rice krispie treats in the shape of Christmas wreaths. If you’ve never made homemade rice krispie treats you are missing out. They are the easiest thing to make and simple recipe to do with the kids.
To start, we gathered our ingredients. You will need butter, marshmallows, rice krispies cereal, food coloring and an assortment of decorations (we used M&Ms, cinnamon candies, twizzlers and colored sugar).
The boys melted the butter and marshmallows before pouring onto the 6 cups of rice krispies. The hardest part of this recipe is mixing it up – you definitely need to add a little muscle strength to mix the sticky marshmallows with the dry cereal.
Once the ingredients were mixed, we began assembling our wreaths. To make a wreath, you start by taking a palm-sized ball on your hand. Then, you flatten the ball like a hamburger patty and poke your finger through the middle to create a hole. From there, you mold the krispie treats into a wreath.
While the wreaths are setting, you can begin decorating your wreaths. This was the boys favorite part.
The result is an adorable treat that is super tasty to eat. So kid-friendly and fun, too.
- 1 stick of butter
- 1 package (10 oz., about 40) marshmallows
- 1 teaspoon green food coloring
- 6 cups Rice Krispies cereal
- Assorted candies
- In large saucepan melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat. Stir in food coloring. Add Rice Krispies cereal. Stir until well coated.
- Using buttered hands, take a palm-sized amount of the mixture and form each portion into a small wreath. Decorate with candies.
