There is nothing I love more around the holidays than creating FUN treats that the kids enjoy making and sharing. These Rudolph Rice Krispie treats are just that! FUN to make and share!
It’s a simple staple recipe that just has a few additions to create these adorable Rudolph’s complete with the red nose!
3 tablespoons butter
1 (10 ounce) package miniature marshmallows
6 cups chocolate crisp cereal (like Cocoa Pebbles)
Red gumdrops (1 for each treat)
Large candy eyes (2 for each treat)
Miniature pretzel twists (2 for each treat)
½ cup milk chocolate morsels
Prepare a 13 x 9 baking sheet with wax paper and a spritz of non-stick cooking spray.
Melt butter in a large saucepan over low heat. When the butter is melted, add the marshmallows and melt, stirring constantly. Remove the saucepan from heat.
Fold in the cereal. Stir until the cereal is coated in the marshmallow.
Using a buttered spatula or greased wax paper evenly press mixture into baking sheet. Cool completely.
Using a biscuit cutter or large mouth glass/jar, cut treats into circles. If the round treats are loose, press them together slightly. reshape the remaining rice krispie mix in your baking pan until all of it is cut into circles.
Place the milk chocolate in a microwave safe bowl. Melt on high hear, stirring every 30 seconds until completely melted. Do not overheat.
Lightly dip one side of a pretzel into the chocolate and immediately press against the top of the round treat. Repeat on the other side to create reindeer antlers.
Using a toothpick, apply melted chocolate to the gumdrops and candy eyes and then lightly press onto the treats.
Allow to dry completely before packaging or serving!
Aren’t these just the cutest!! These would be perfect for classroom parties. Or if you have a holiday baking party with little ones. If you prepare the rice krispie treats ahead of time, they would have a blast decorating them!
I simply adore them!
These Rudolph Rice Krispies were a QUICK and easy treat to make but looks like it took hours to make! I can almost bet that someone you know would LOVE to have these!
