Christmas Tree Rice Krispies Treats

I know it’s not even Thanksgiving yet, but I just couldn’t help it with these Christmas Tree Rice Krispies Treats. You know my love for all things Christmas and Rice Krispies, so I couldn’t resist whipping up a batch of these adorably festive treats for the kiddos!

Much like the traditional Rice Krispies Treats, these Christmas Tree Rice Krispies Treats are so easy to make and they taste just as good as they look.

The tree color will depend on how much food coloring you put into the marshmallow mixture.  For a lighter green use less, for a darker green use more. You can use a lot of sprinkles, or you can use none. The beauty of these Christmas Tree Rice Krispies Treats is you can make them look however your little heart fancies.

And really, you can’t go wrong. I mean, they’re Rice Krispies Treats for goodness sake!

They’re perfect for class parties (if your child’s school still allows homemade treats), work parties, family gatherings, etc. You can serve them with the stick or without, but personally, I love the look of them on the stick. If you want to get a little fancier, wrap them in a cellophane bag and tie with a festive ribbon.

But enough rambling from me — here’s how you make these Christmas Tree Rice Krispies Treats!
