Making homemade Rice Krispie treats has always been on my to do list. Now that I have kids, I can finally indulge in this childhood treat without the guilt. I love that you can make the traditional, plain Rice Krispie treats or dress them up for the holidays. These snowman Rice Krispies make perfect Christmas gifts for the kids’ classmates (or moms with a sweet tooth).
The other nice thing about Rice Krispie treats is you can freeze and eat them later or eat them straight from the pan. If stored at room temperature, keep in an air-tight container for up to two days.
- 3 tablespoons butter or margarine
- 10 ounce package regular marshmallows or 4 cups minature marshmallows
- 4 ounce white chocolate baking bark
- 6 cups rice krispies cereal
- white frosting or icing
- brown M&M’S
- red twizzlers, sliced into thin strips
- blue or black Twizzlers, cut up into small pieces
- red sour strips
- orange jelly beans
Melt butter in large saucepan over low heat.
Add marshmallows and white chocolate, stirring until completely melted.
Remove from heat.
Stir in Kellogg’s Rice Krispies ceral until well coated.
Divide cereal mixture 6 large balls and 6 small balls using a large spoon and place on wax paper.
Make 6 snowmen by putting small balls on top of large balls.
Use frosting to add eyes (M&M’s), nose (jelly beans), mouth (Twizzlers), buttons (Twizzlers) and scarf (sour strips) to each snowman.
