christmas rice krispies treats

Are the kids home from school this week on vacation?  Here’s a yummy holiday treat you can make together.  These Rice Krispy are a cute treat to bring to neighbors and they look great as a holiday centerpiece.  Plus, with the high-value coupon out right now for Kellogg’s Rice Krispies, they’re even sweeter!

Christmas Ornament Treats

1/4 C. butter + extra for your hands (you’ll need for shaping the Rice Krispy treats into a ball)
1 10-oz. package marshmallows
1 tsp. vanilla
6 C. Kellogg’s Rice Krispies
Holiday-colored sugar sprinkles or jimmies
Rolo candy


Melt butter in a large saucepan.  Add marshmallows and stir constantly until well-combined. Add vanilla, and stir again.  Add the Rice Krispies cereal.  Mix until all of the cereal is coated with the marshmallow mixture.

Butter your hands well, then and shape the cereal into six balls.  Make sure they’re packed tightly.  Acting quickly, roll the balls in colored sugar or holiday-colored jimmies or sprinkles until coated.

For the top of the ornament, stick a toothpick into one end of a Rolo candy.  The other end of the toothpick long goes into the Rice Krispy ornament.
