I know I say this every time we do a Rice Krispie treat post but … we are crazy about Rice Krispie Treats at Two Sisters Crafting. They are so delicious. We knew we wanted to do a Rice Krispie Treat for Christmas. We wanted to do something different and came across someone who used this technique for Halloween. We loved the way they turned out.
How to make Merry Christmas Rice Krispie Treats
You will need:
- Rice Krispie Treat Cereal
- Mini Marshmallows
- Americolor Food Coloring – Super Red
- Americolor Food Coloring – Leaf Green
- Cookie Sheets
- Christmas Cookie Cutters
- Alphabet Cookie Cutters
We started with three batches of yummy, delicious Rice Krispie Treats. Each batch was made with 5 tablespoons of butter, 5 cups of mini marshmallows and 5 cups of Rice Krispies Cereral. You can find detailed directions on how to make the Rice Krispie Treat mixture here.
We colored two of the batches of Rice Krispie Treat mixture. One Red, using Americolor Super Red Food Coloring and the other green using Americolor Leaf Green Food Coloring. Add the following coloring to the marshmallow mixture BEFORE you add the Rice Krispie Cereal.
Pour the Rice Krispie mixture onto buttered cookie sheets. Let the mixture cool for a few minutes. Then butter your hands and press down the Rice Krispie Treat mixture so it fills the cookie sheet. Try your best to make sure that each tray of Rice Krispie Treats are the same height.
Cut the Rice Krispie Treats into squares. Make sure that the squares are big enough for the Christmas cookie cutters that you are going to use.
Pick two squares to make your first pair of Merry Christmas Rice Krispie Treats.
Pick a Christmas Cookie Cutter and make a cut-out on each square.
Now switch the cut-outs and put them back in the squares. The Merry Christmas Rice Krispie Treats are sticky from the marshmallows so you will be able to push the shapes back together.
We trimmed the un-even edges of the Merry Christmas Rice Krispie Treats as a final touch.
Here’s a tip from Two Sisters Crafting – the cut-off edges are just as delicious as the regular Rice Krispie Treats. We save them in a plastic bag and eat them when we need a little sweet snack. We call them Rice Krispie Remnants, feel free to use the name!
The Merry Christmas Rice Krispie Treats turned out so pretty. We especially loved the red and green pairing.
The ornaments were cute we decided to spell out Merry Christmas with the rest of our Rice Krispie Treats.
We used the same technique with some alphabet cookie cutters we had on hand.
So … so … adorable.
Merry Christmas from Two Sisters Crafting to you …
