Festive Rice Krispie Treats
A super fun and easy treat to make for the holidays!
- 6 tbsp butter
- 8 cups marshmallows
- 6 cups rice krispies* GF if needed
- 1 tube icing I used red
- 1/4 cup M&M’s minis
Grease a baking dish with butter or line it with parchment paper.
In a large pot, melt the butter. Add the marshmallows, and stir constantly until this melt. Remove from the heat, and add the rice krispies. Stir until everything is well-combined.
Scoop the mixture into the baking dish and gently press it, spreading it evenly in the dish. Let it sit for 15-20 minutes.
Once the mixture is set, press a Christmas tree cookie cutter into the rice krispies. Carefully remove from the cutter, and place on a plate. Repeat until you’ve done the whole tray. You will have some leftover, I use it as my taste-tester.
Using an icing bag with a small round tip, draw the garland on the Christmas tree. Stick the M&Ms to the icing.
Place in an airtight container. Will keep for up to a week.
If you need gluten free, I used One Degree Organics Brown Rice Cereal.
I do believe Kellogg’s also makes a GF cereal.
