If for some reason you’ve never made these treats and have only enjoyed their deliciousness, here’s how you do it. Takes about 15 minutes total and after they have cooled they are ready to be decorated and served.
Happy Holidays All!
The girls decorated teddy bears and candy canes and we even made a little mouse, which hopefully will be the only thing stirring the night before Christmas.
It’s great fun for big kids who can let out their creative genius and for little fingers who enjoy topping the sprinkles and love the help and sense of accomplishment.
Hope you’re all enjoying early Christmas dinners and parties and hope Rice Krispies treats are a part of them. We always have these treats and they never disappoint. Check out why we always support the Rice Krispies Treats for Toys, here.
