Kellogg’s® Rice Krispies® Treats are by far one of my favorite desserts of the holidays, so much so that my grandma still makes me an extra batch to take home at all of our family get-togethers. For the longest time I thought she had some secret recipe, but come to find out she just uses the traditional, back-of-the-box recipe. Sadly, we won’t be traveling to see her over the holiday, so I’ll be making them this year. There’s no way I will be messing with the classic recipe, but instead will share a simple way to make them more festive.
Ruby needed to go down for a nap, but first she was able to have a little snack. She helped herself into this big box of Rice Krispies®
I’m always one to use whatever recipe is on the back of a package, it’s just so easy, I love it.
The best thing about this recipe is that it calls for only three ingredients. Three. And it hardly takes any time at all. It’s really easy to have all of the items on hand during the holidays to make for those last minute gatherings. Or, if you’re like me, the ones you forgot about and then remember an hour before.
And here’s an important step not to skip: the buttered spatula or wax paper. It can definitely be sticky business, but this ingenious trick makes it really easy.
As an additional step, which is optional, I added some green sprinkles to mine.
I found an easy trick for cutting out trees, which you can see above. You may want to wait a little for your treats to set up a bit before cutting. Then cut your finished Rice Krispies® Treats down the middle long ways making two sides. On each side cut in a zigzag pattern to form triangles.
When displayed they look like a little forest!
Another way you can dress up your Rice Krispies® Treats is to use a cookie cutter, I used a snowflake one. Just make sure to spray your cookie cutter with some cooking spray so that it doesn’t get all sticky. I found it was easiest to set the treats on a cutting board, but I totally should have slid a sheet of wax paper under them first! For this batch of Rice Krispies® treats, I added light blue and silver sprinkles to look like snow. I love how these turned out and I hope to continue the tradition of making Rice Krispies® Treats this time of year. It was simple and easy enough that I know Ruby would love to help. Maybe next time I will wait until after she wakes up from her nap. Although she did go with me to Walmart to get the Rice Krispies® and even lugged that family size up on the conveyor belt. It’s one of her favorite tasks at the grocery store. She was a trooper yesterday and was out all day running errands, so she needed her nap. And I think it’s safe to say she’s enjoying this new tradition.
