Hello hello hellooo!! I hope you’re all having a wonderful weekend! I’ve been very busy this week trying to get all of my posts organised and also doing college work, but I did have time to do this quick and easy treat-rice krispie Christmas trees, with only 4 ingredients! I made these with my 6 year old nephew and it was super easy, he loved it.
- 2 packets of marshmallows (around 50 marshmallows altogether)
- a box of rice krispies
- green food colouring
- 3 1/2 table spoons of unsalted butter
Firstly, grease proof a 9×13 inch tray/pan then set it aside. Then melt the butter and marshmallows in a large pan until it looks like this:
Next, add your green food colouring into the mix until you are satisfied with the colour of green.
Add the rice krispies gradually into the pan and mix until all of the rice krispies are covered. (on the picture it really doesn’t look green, more grey/yellow, but it did in real life:))
Then next, scrape all of the mixture into your pre-greased tray/pan and flatten it down a little bit, depending on how 3D you want it to look. (again it looks more yellow than green sorry, the flash has done me no favours!)
Then simply sprinkle hundreds of thousands/sprinkles over the top of the mixture and put it in the fridge for 30-45 minutes.
Once it has all set, simply use a spatula to go around the sides of the tray so that it can be taken out easier. Then use a knife to cut out the Christmas trees then you can make other shapes with the excess or just clump it together like I did so you can pick at it! (it all still looks yellow instead of green and I am the worst person to cut triangles!!! I apologise for the presentation)
Thankyou so much for reading, if you enjoyed this then please give it a like and let me know if you decide to make these. Also follow me for more Christmas posts like this. I love you all very much and I’ll see you on Wednesday for another post!
Remember to BELIEVE in the magic of the season!
