Rice Krispie Christmas Trees



– 6 cups krispie rice cereal – 1 (10 oz.) bag, mini marshmallows – 5 Tbsp. butter – Green food coloring (about 60 drops) Decorations: – 1 Tbsp. Christmas sprinkles (feel free to use more if you prefer) – 10 mini Reese's peanut butter cups, halved – 20 yellow star sprinkles – White sparkle gel icing


Step 1

To a large mixing bowl, measure out the rice cereal. Set aside. Spray a 9 x 13" pan with non-stick baking spray. Set aside.

Step 2

In a separate microwave safe bowl, add the marshmallows and butter. Microwave 1 minute, stir to incorporate the butter. Microwave again for 30-45 seconds until the marshmallows are nearly melted. Stir well until smooth and the marshmallows and butter are melted together.

Step 3

Add about 60 drops of green food coloring to tint the marshmallow mixture bright green. Stir well so that the marshmallow mixture is completely green. Pour into the cereal.

Step 4

Working quickly, stir the marshmallow mixture and cereal together so that the cereal is completely coated. Pour the cereal into the prepared 9 x 13" pan.

Step 5

Spray your hands with non-stick spray and press the cereal evenly and firmly into the pan. Sprinkle the cereal treats with the Christmas sprinkles. Let the treats cool for 15-30 minutes to room temperature.

Step 6

Invert the treats onto a large cutting board, or baking sheet, flipping the treats over with another baking pan, so that the sprinkle side is facing up. Cut the treats into 3 long strips, each 3" wide and 13" long. Cut each long strip into triangles.
