Christmas Tree Krispie Treats

by Laura

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.

Christmas Tree Krispie Treats


  • 1 bag (10 oz) mini marshmallows
  • 3 Tbsp butter
  • Green coloring
  • 6 cups Rice Krispies cereal
  • 3 Tbsp red sprinkles (such as Wilton)
  • 1215 Reeses peanut butter cups miniatures
  • 1215 yellow M&Ms Minis


  1. 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.
  2. Mix in cereal and stir until well coated. Allow to cool 1 minute or until cool enough to touch.
  3. With greased hands, shape about 1/3 cup of the mixture into a small cone, pressing firmly. Place on a sheet of parchment or waxed papper. Shape remaining cereal mixture. You will end up with about 12-15 trees.
  4. Decorate cone with red sprinkles and top each cone with a yellow candy.
  5. Once trees are decorated, place each on top of a Reeses mini peanut butter cup. Makes 12-15 trees.
