Fun Holiday Krispie Treats

Your kids can work with the Krispies as their art medium and create sculptures (of sorts!)  They can make anything they like —  from snowmen  to cute little animals to just squares or balls!  You can use the images here as a guide for Christmas and Hanukkah treats.  We brought the menorah to a kid’s Hanukkah party last year, and it was a huge hit!

Rice Crispy Holiday Treats2


  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
  • 3 cups small marshmallows
  • 5 cups Crispy Brown Rice cereal


In a large pot over medium heat, melt the butter with the marshmallows. Turn off the heat, add the cereal, and stir to coat completely. Let cool so you can touch  — but don’t let it get too cool or you won’t be able mold shapes easily.  Have your kids put a little butter on their hands so they won’t stick to the cereal. Have fun!

Possible Decorations:

  • Chocolate chips
  • White frosting for “glue”
  • Food coloring
  • Melted chocolate
  • Sprinkles (all colors and shapes)
  • Carrots (tiny pieces)

Some additional notes:

For a twist on Rice Krispie Treats, you might like — or possibly even love — my recipe for Chocolaty Rice Treats!

Erewhon Crispy Brown Rice cereal is gluten-free, and I like that it’s made from brown rice.  Kellogg’s Rice Krispies are just fine, too!
