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!

Here’s how you can make your own Rudolph Rice Krispie treats!

Supply list:

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

Now it’s time to put all of the yumminess together!

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.

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.
