Christmas Rice Crispy Treats

 

The holidays are for baking and making nice little treats to enjoy with friends and family. For people like me, who wait all year long for Christmas, making holiday goodies is one of my favourite things to do. And while these little treats are technically not "baked goods", they rightly fall into the same category as classic holiday goods. Rice Crispy treats couldn't be any easier, however, it's better to make 'em with a friend as there's a step you'll want a hand with - things can get preeeeetty sticky!

So, we wanted to provide you with a Step by Step tutorial of our favourite Rice Crispy Treats Recipe this Christmas. Also, they are super customisable, require little ingredients to make them, and are a "one bowl" sort of thing, which is always a plus (less dishes to do at the end...). You can make them the Classic way like I did, or you can make them chocolatey, you can add candy, sprinkles, food colouring, flavourings, icing... Seriously, go crazy. It's Christmas time.

Finally, take off of heat, and add in 5 cups of rice crispies. Mix fast and thoroughly, before the marshmallows harden.

STEP 4:

Quickly transfer to a greased pan. Grease your fingers with butter and oil, and press the mixture down into the pan so it's tightly packed.

STEP 5:

Next, let your rice crispy treats cool for about an hour. Then, take a greased (with oil or butter) christmassy cookie cutter, and cut out shapes from the rice cripies in your pan. I used a christmas tree cookie cutter, but take which ever cutter your love most. Or, if you want to make it simple, just cut out squares.

STEP 6:

DECORATE À GOGO!! 🙂

For the decorating, you can really use anything. Some people use candy melts and buttercream to decorate rice crispy treats, but I used melted white chocolate, and used colour gels to tint the chocolate red and green, then topped them off with sugar snow flakes!
