Christmas Tree Krispie Treats

This post may contain affiliate links. Read our disclosure policy.

When I was planning this Christmas week on the blog, I discovered after picking the recipes to make that 3 of the 4 recipes involve making food into some form of a Christmas tree. This was completely unintentional, however, it kind of turned out to be a nice theme. Today’s tree is in the form of a sweet treat, Christmas Tree Krispie Treats.

I thought these would be a fun thing to have the kids make and give their friends for Christmas. That is one of the best memories I have growing up. I made fun gifts for my friends. I even helped my friend at her house to make some fun Christmas gifts.

Instructions
 

  • In a large pot over medium heat, melt marshmallows and butter together. Stir until smooth. Mix in some green food coloring to achieve desired color.
  • Mix in cereal and stir until well coated. Allow to cool 1 minute or until cool enough to touch.
